SiPons strikes Marinerang Pilipina as Petron cruises to ninth straight win

The Petron Blaze Spikers steamrollered Marinerang Pilipina Lady Skippers in straight sets, 25-12, 25-17 25-9, to grab their ninth straight victory in the 2019 PSL All-Filipino Conference, Tuesday at the Muntinlupa Sports Center.

Sisi Rondina and Bernadeth Pons fired on all cylinders to power the Blaze Spikers’ drubbing of the still-winless Lady Skippers.

Rondina wounded up as the game’s lead scorer. The product of UST finished with 13 points built on seven attacks, four service aces, and two blocks. On the other hand, Pons nailed all of her 11 points from the attacking department to go along with 14 digs.

The Blaze Spikers hold an 11-1 card and remain seated at solo second behind the unbeaten F2 Logistics. But beyond their impressive record, Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos is happy that he fielded all of his 14 players in the said game.

“Siyempre happy kasi lahat nag-deliver. Kasama sa game plan na makalaro lahat,” Delos Santos said. “Sabi ko nga sa second six namin, siyempre mag-prepare. Okay naman, good preparation para sa next game namin.”

Ces Molina and Aiza Maizo-Pontillas supplied seven and six points, respectively. Meanwhile, Mika Reyes and Mela Tunay managed five markers each.

Petron setter Rhea Dimaculangan dished out 21 excellent sets.

The Blaze Spikers stamped their class on Marinerang Pilipina on all scoring departments. They generated 44 and seven points via attacks and aces to the latter’s 18 and two, respectively. They also out-blocked the Lady Skippers, seven-to-none.

Meanwhile, Marinerang Pilipina dropped their 13th straight outing.

No Lady Skippers graced twin-digit territory. Dimdim Pacres topped her team with nine markers.

The defending champions now look to exact vengeance on their first round tormentors F2 Logistics Cargo Movers when they collide on Thursday at the FilOil Arena. On Tuesday, Marinerang Pilipina will try to break through the win column on their preliminary finale against the Foton Blue Energy Tornadoes at the Malolos Sport and Convention Center.
