PVL: Cignal ends campaign on a high, wipes out Army

Cignal ended its campaign on a high note, keeping Army-Black Mamba winless, 29-27, 25-19, 25-16 in the 2023 Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference at the Philsports Arena, Thursday night.

Glaudine Troncoso saved the best for last, unloading a game-high 16 points on 13 attacks while Ces Molina chipped in 15 points on 12 attacks, two aces, and a block as the HD Spikers finished with a 3-5 win-loss standing to overtake Choco Mucho at sixth place.

Rachel Daquis added 12 points which includes four blocks to go along with 12 excellent digs.

“I’m happy and syempre very thankful kay Lord dahil syempre alam namin na medyo mabigat yung pinagdaanan nung team,” said Cignal head coach Shaq delos Santos.

Cignal had to overcome an extended first set before taking the next two games with ease. The HD Spikers dominated all categories, tallying 48 attack points, 11 blocks, and six service aces while the Lady Troopers only had 34, 6, and 2, respectively.

“Yung last game namin nakuha namin ng straight sets so sarap pala ng pakiramdam ulit ng ganun na nakuha namin yung game na ‘to. Magiging inspiration namin ‘to. Additional inspiration ‘to para sa amin ‘pag pasok ng Invitationals,” added delos Santos.

Gel Cayuna tossed 12 excellent sets while Jheck Dionela gathered eight excellent digs and eight excellent receptions.

Army went winless for the second consecutive conference, dropping a grand total of 21 consecutive games since the Invitational Conference. The Lady Troopers ended their campaign with an 0-8 standing.

Royse Tubino paced Army with 14 points while Nene Bautista and Jeanette Villareal had seven points apiece.
