2016 FIVB Women's CWC

PSL-F2 Logistics bows out of Women’s CWC in last place

PSL-F2 Logistics Manila tried valiantly but could not end their 2016 FIVB Women’s Club Championship campaign on a high note, succumbing to Thai club Bangkok Glass in the final match, 16-25, 23-25, 20-25 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

Although for the first time in the tournament, the hosts had the apparent height advantage, Bangkok Glass showed tremendous cohesion which ultimately decided the match.

Bangkok Glass executed Thailand’s signature fast offense and steady defense to quell the import-powered hosts. Bangkok leapt to an 18-9 lead in the first, then had a 23-21 lead heading into the second frame. Mika Reyes came in at that point and scored off a block that tied the match at 23-all. But Bangkok’s Thidarat closed the match, getting a floater to convert, then blocking Lindsay Stalzer.

The third frame was close before the Thais pulled away midway, firing off five consecutive hits that gave them a 20-15 lead.

“To score 20 points contra Bangkok Glass, that’s a huge acheivement for the players. Credits to all the coaches and the players who worked hard to train. This is just the beginning even if the tournament has ended,” said PSL-F2 Logistics head coach Moro Branislav.

Jaja Santiago tallied 11 points, Lindsay Stlazer added eight, while Stephanie Niemer managed seven.

American import Ashley Frazier led Bangkok Glass with 12 points, while Thidarat Phengvechai and Thi Ngoc Hoa Nguyen each provided 11.

The PSL selection finishes in last place, while Bangkok Glass get seventh with their lone win of the tournament.
