Spikers Turf: Mangulabnan steers Cotabato to sweep of Imus

AMC-Cotabato kept its slate clean after scoring a surprising sweep against Imus-Ivy Tuason Photography, 25-23, 25-20, 25-18, in the 2023 Spikers’ Turf Open Conference at the Paco Arena, Friday afternoon.

Vince Mangulabnan played in his first game for the Cotabato Spikers and tossed 13 excellent sets to help his team upgrade their standing to 5-0 and tie Iloilo at the third spot.

Jau Umandal once again led the scoring with 17 points on 14 attacks, two blocks, and an ace to go along with 12 excellent receptions and eight excellent digs while Madz Gampong chipped in 12 markers.

“Hindi ko yata team ‘yan kapag konti ang error,” quipped Cotabato head coach Odjie Mamon after learning that his team committed 29 errors in the contest. “Hindi, I’m just letting them explore so under control naman, maganda yung galaw so happy.

“And of course the inclusion of Vince Mangulabnan so hopefully, mas maging okay pa. Yung service targeting namin, consistency sa serving na lang siguro yung kailangan pang ma-improve,” he added.

The AJAA Spikers suffered their second consecutive loss of the tournament and slipped to 5-3 in the standings.

Ridz Muhali led the way for Imus with 10 points while Kim Malabunga and Hero Austria added eight and seven points, respectively.

Cotabato will put its perfect slate at stake against league-leading Cignal on Sunday at 3:00 PM while Imus will face Iloilo on Wednesday at 5:30 PM.
