Continuing their dominant run through the 2019 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix, the Petron Blaze Spikers doused the surging PLDT Home Fibr Power Hitters, 25-16, 25-21, 25-14, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
Petron extended their winning streak to 10, having dropped just one set, so far.
High-scoring imports Stephanie Niemer and Kath Bell took charge for the Blaze Spikers, tallying 21 and 19 points, respectively. The pair were instrumental in propelling the Blaze Spikers from a slow, 5-7 start in the second to a commanding 18-13 lead. Aside from that, Petron never trailed throughout the rest of the match.
“Happy and nakaka-proud kasi ginagawa talaga nila ‘yung best nila, and good thing din kahit ganoon ‘yung nangyari. Na-experience namin na kailangan hindi pwedeng maging complacent talaga. Kailangan mag-focus. Every point na gagawin namin, kailangan makapag-create kami ng magandang execution ng plays start from our service and our passing,” said Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos.
“Kailangan pa rin namin mag-improve sa mga susunod na games. Siyempre, second round na. Lahat ng team pinag-aaralan kami. Ganun din naman kami sa kanila,” the national team mentor added.
Kendra Dahlke topped PLDT with 16 points, while fellow import Grace Lazard added eight.
