Reigning champions Petron Blaze Spikers displayed their might as they demolished the Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors, 25-17, 25-11, 25-19, in the quarterfinals of the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix yesterday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
American imports Kath Bell and Stephanie Niemer were at their best, lifting the Blaze Spikers to their 15th straight win and into the semifinals of this prestigious women’s club league.
Petron will face the survivor between Cignal and United VC, in the best-of-three semifinal showdown starting next week.
Bell delivered 19 points and 17 digs, while Niemer chipped in 16 markers for Petron, who needed only 79 minutes to wrap up this contest that has ESPN5 and 5Plus as broadcast partners.
“Masaya kami na nasa semis na kami, pero madami pa kami kailangan pagdaanan. Yung streak namin, hindi na namin iniisip yun dahil semis na,” said Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos.
Casey Schoenlein delivered 12 points for Sta. Lucia, who shut down their campaign with a 2-13 win-loss slate.
The league is bankrolled by Asics, Mueller, Mikasa, Senoh, Team Rebel Sports, Bizooku, UCPB Gen, Cocolife, Hotel Sogo and Data Project.
