Lifesavers want this game badly

October 07, 2019

BACOOR CITY — Generika-Ayala seeks to regain its winning ways when it clashes with Sta. Lucia in the resumption of the Philippine Superliga Invitational Conference Tuesday at the Bacoor STRIKE gym here.

Game time is at 6 p.m. with the Lifesavers looking to salvage their shattered pride following a loss to F2 Logistics before this prestigious women’s club tourney took a break last Oct. 1 to give way for the staging of the Asean Grand Prix, a tourney that serves as a test event of the 30th Southeast Asian Games.

The Philippines emerged with a bronze medal with Majoy Baron and Dawn Macandili of F2 Logistics running away with the Best Blocker and Best Libero awards, respectively.

Baron and Macandili will hit the court anew when the Cargo Movers battle Foton at 4 p.m. following the collision between red-hot Cignal and lowly Marinerang Pilipina at 2 p.m.

Fashioning a 1-2 win-loss card, the Lifesavers are in the third spot in Group B and are in dire need of a win to boost their chances of advancing to the next round.

But the Lady Realtors also have the same objective as they are looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses to PLDT Home Fibr and Cignal, turning this battle into a dramatic encounter that could go down up to the last rally and last defensive stop.

Generika-Ayala head coach Sherwin Meneses recognizes their hunger, saying that they are in a must-win situation entering the crucial stretch of the tournament.

“Every game is important so we must make the most out of every opportunity to take the win,” said Meneses, whose wards started hot before fading in the semifinal derby of the All-Filipino Conference two months ago.
