Spikers Turf: Criss Cross continues strong start, wallops VNS on Polvorosa’s birthday

Criss Cross flexed its might over young VNS-Nasty, 25-18, 25-17, 25-17, in the 2024 Spikers’ Turf Open Conference at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City on Friday night.

After needing some time to heat up in the first set before pulling away from the Griffins, the King Crunchers opened up a huge lead right away in the second, 12-4, on the way to the 25-17 win for a commanding 2-0 set lead.

“Para hindi magkumpyansa for this game, we just took it one point at a time. In general, we’re taking it one game at a time kasi we’re a new team pero hindi naman kami bago sa isa’t isa pero bago sa amin yung sistema ni Coach Tai (Bundit),” said Criss Cross setter Ish Polvorosa, who celebrated his birthday with a victory.

Polvorosa steered the King Crunchers to 2-0 with 19 excellent sets leading to a balanced attack.

Jude Garcia led Criss Cross in scoring with 11 points with six coming off blocks while also getting nine receptions and six digs.

Ysay Marasigan delivered nine points, Kim Malabunga added eight, while Jaron Requinton finished with seven points in just two sets of play.

Manuel Sumanguid held the fort in defense with 13 excellent receptions and 13 digs.

Criss Cross will aim for a 3-0 record on Sunday against fellow newcomer RichMarc Sports 3B at Paco Arena.

Kenneth Culabat and Wewe Medina led the Griffins with 11 points each.

VNS-Nasty’s next game is scheduled for April 5 against D’Navigators at the same Pasig arena.
