Games Today (The Arena, San Juan City)
2 p.m. – Marinerang Pilipina vs Sta. Lucia
4:15 p.m. – PLDT Home Fibr vs Petron
7 p.m. – Foton vs F2 Logistics
F2 Logistics and Foton put their respective winning streaks on the line when they collide in a highly anticipated second round battle in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference today at The Arena in San Juan City.
Action fires off at 7 p.m. with the league-leading Cargo Movers looking to extend their winning run to 9 games while the Tornadoes hoping to notch their 7th win in a row after a 1-3 start in the event bankrolled by Team Rebel Sports, SOGO, Eurotel, PCSO, Cocolife, UCPB Gen, Mueller, Senoh, Asics, Bizooku and One Sport.
Meanwhile, reigning champion Petron also guns for its seventh straight win when it tackles PLDT Home Fibr at 4:15 p.m. while struggling Sta. Lucia and Marinerang Pilipina seek to end their miseries when they clash in the 2 p.m. appetizer.
After acquiring Filipino-American Kalei Mau in the off-season, the Cargo Movers have yet to drop a single game in the club tourney that has ESPN5 and Kapatid TV5 as broadcast partners.
Although the Blaze Spikers also have a winning streak of their own, the Tornadoes are still regarded as the hottest team behind the Cargo Movers with six straight victories after starting the season with a 1-3 win-loss card.
In their first match, F2 Logistics greatly struggled before running away with a tough 25-9, 23-25, 25-22, 25-16 win, no thanks to the improved performance of towering sisters Jaja Santiago and Dindin Manabat as well as the support crew of Elaine Kasilag, Maika Ortiz, Gyzelle Sy, and Shaya Adorador.
“Foton is such a tall team. They are a tough team because of sister Jaja and Dindin, who have experiences in the national team and in Japan club league,” F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus said.
