6 p.m. – Creamline vs Tacloban
TACLOBAN made quick work of Adamson-Akari, 25-21, 25-12, 25-22, for its second straight win in the PVL Open Conference at the Filoil Flying V Centre yesterday.
Down, 21-22, in the third set, the Fighting Warays closed out the match with four straight points to frustrate the Lady Falcons.
“‘Yung dalawang araw na pinractice namin medyo nakukuha na naman ang sistema eh, ang sabi ko lang kailangan magtuluy-tuloy lang kasi marami kaming lapses noong nakaraan sa depensa talaga,” said coach Nes Pamilar after Tacloban tied Pocari Sweat-Air Force at 2-1.
Jovie Prado took the scoring mantle for the Fighting Warays with 18 points and 10 digs.
Heather Guino-o sustained her solid play with 13 hits while Anne Esguerra added 10 markers for Tacloban, which had 11 blocks in the one hour and 18-minute match.
“Unang-una kapag organized ang blocking namin nagkakaroon kami ng floor defense so medyo maganda ang blocking so kapag na touch namin nakasunod agad ang floor defense namin,” said Pamilar.
Chiara Permentilla scored 11 points while Bern Flora chipped in seven points, 13 receptions and 10 digs for Adamson-Akari.
The Lady Falcons sorely missed ace hitter Eli Soyud, who is out six to eight weeks due to a meniscus tear.
