In a microcosm of their elimination round campaign, the Petron Blaze Spikers made short work of United VC, 25-14, 25-17, 25-19, to sweep the 14-game preliminaries of the 2019 PSL Grand Prix, Saturday evening at the Filoil Flying V Center.
American imports Kath Bell and Stephanie Nimer delivered for the Blaze Spikers, who displayed their championship form from start to finish.
Niemer finished with 23 points. Meanwhile, Bell had 18 markers in the match that took an hour and 21 minutes to finish.
“I’m proud of our team, we work hard on practice every day. Every match is like a new season, you don’t look back at the past and for me, it’s always 0-0, and we just have to always maintain that same level of intensity,” said Niemer.
Kalei Mau and Yaasmeen Behdart-Ghani’s efforts were not enough, as United VC slid to 6-7.
