Slow start vs Nxled is a lesson learned for Dimaculangan, PLDT

STA. ROSA — Despite securing the victory, PLDT head coach Rald Ricafort and team captain Rhea Dimaculangan remained unsatisfied after their slow start against Nxled nearly jeopardized their chances on Thursday afternoon.

The High Speed Hitters notched their third consecutive win with a score of 22-25, 25-17, 25-11, 25-20, but had to first overcome their first-set loss and a tightly contested fourth frame. In that set, the Chameleons, led by Chiara Permentilla, unleashed consecutive aces, posing a threat to extend the match at the Sta.

“Siguro yung first set kailangan maging lesson sa amin na bawal mag-slow start kasi mabigat mag-serve si Nxled na nag-cause sa amin ng kaguluhan, pero buti eventually naka-recover naman and nakuha yung game,” said Ricafort.

“Lesson learned yung game namin ngayon na hindi kami pwede ma-slow start tapos kailangan every game maging mas aggressive pa kami para makita namin kung nasaan yung level ng team namin,” echoed Dimaculangan.

PLDT will face off against the Defenders on Saturday at 4:00 p.m. at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

“Siguro mas inano ko muna yung sarili ko yung pag-compose ko sa sarili ko na kailangan mabigay ko yung bola na gusto nila para maging comfortable sila tas hanggang sa naging comfortable naman so naging maayos na rin yung palo ng bawat isa,” said Dimaculangan.

“More on paano namin dadalhin yung sarili namin tapos hanggang sa maging isa ulit kami as a team para kahit anong sitwasyon na dumating sa amin kailangan namin i-handle.”
