Philippines bows to Toray Arrows despite arrival of PVL standouts

Despite deploying its reinforcements, the Philippine Women’s National Volleyball Team suffered a sweep at the hands of Japan’s Toray Arrows, 24-26, 16-25, 11-25, 18-25, 19-21, in a tune-up match on Sunday.

Fresh off a rousing victory over Bangkok University, the Nationals could not secure at least a set against the Japanese even with the arrival of Jia Morado, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Maddie Madayag, and Eya Laure.

The Filipinas have now lost three of their five friendlies. The first two defeats were to the Under-23 and the Seniors’ squad of the Thailand Women’s National Team.

Still, National team head coach Shaq Delos Santos now has a complete roster at his disposal since the PVL standouts joined skipper Aby Maraño, Kalei Mau, Alohi Robins-Hardy, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Mylene Paat, Majoy Baron, Ces Molina, Roselyn Doria, Dawn Macandili, and Kath Arado.

Assistant coach Kungfu Reyes also arrived to provide support for Delos Santos.

The Nationals will have another crack at Toray Arrows on Tuesday. They will then travel to Korat on Wednesday before the Southeast Asian Grand Prix from September 20 to 22.
