Sabete, Prado orchestrate Petro Gazz’s rout of Choco Mucho

Jonah Sabete and Jovie Prado continued to take charge for Petro Gazz, leading the Angels to a straight-set drubbing of the Kat Tolentino-led Choco Mucho Flying Titans, 25-18, 25-21, 25-18, Wednesday night at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.

“Kung kaya durugin ‘yung kalaban, as in durugin talaga kung kaya. Masaya kami kasi nakatuntong kami dito as a team talaga. Hindi kami (nagrely) sa isang tao lang, tulungan kami lahat,” said Sabete.

“[Instead na maging complacent], naging inspiration pa namin na pasok na kami. Kailangan pa namin dagdagan pa ‘yung lakas and ‘yung pagiging consistent sa game para sa next game namin, tuluy-tuloy pa rin,” she added.

The prolific scoring duo delivered all-around performance once again, as the Angels extended their winning streak to three. They also close out their 2019 PVL Open Conference preliminaries on a high note with a 12-4 card for solo second place.

Sabete fired 14 points built on 12 attacks, while collecting 12 excellent receptions. Prado, on the other hand, supplied a triple-double outing of 12 markers, 13 excellent digs, and 11 excellent receptions.

Make no mistake, though — Petro Gazz may have leaned on its pair of wingers, but the Angels still put up a balanced offensive thrust.

Cherry Nunag and Paneng Mercado contributed nine markers each. The former dispersed three kill blocks and two service aces, while the latter hammered down all of her points from attacks. Jeanette Panaga chimed in six points with half of it coming from rejections, as Kai Baloaloa added three.

Veteran playmaker Chie Saet dished out 13 excellent sets for the Angels, who saw solid floor coverage from Cienne Cruz. The defensive specialist tallied 14 excellent digs.

Meanwhile, Tolentino was the lone bright spot for Choco Mucho with a game-high 20 points anchored on 16 attacks, three kill blocks, and an ace. She also had 16 excellent digs for a double-double performance that went for naught.

The Flying Titans, who missed the services of Maddie Madayag due to National team duties, finish their campaign with 6-10 slate.
