Games Tomorrow: (Batangas City Coliseum)
2 p.m. – F2 Logistics vs Petron
4 p.m. – Generika vs RC Cola-Army
6 p.m. – Standard Insurance-Navy vs Foton
F2 Logistics made a quick, merciless work of Standard Insurance-Navy as it pulled off a 26-24, 25-16, 25-14 victory in the 2016 Philippine Superliga (PSL) All-Filipino Conference women’s volleyball tournament yesterday at the FilOil Flying V Center in San Juan.
Aby Marano and Ara Galang were impressive, but it was Kim Fajardo who provided the spark as she controlled the game from start to finish to carry the Cargo Movers to an easy win in this prestigious inter-club tourney bankrolled by KLab Cyscorpions, Asics, Mikasa, Mueller and Senoh with TV5 as official broadcast partner.
Marano manned the middle with authority, finishing with eight kills and four blocks for a game-high 12 points while rookie Galang chipped in 10 markers for the Cargo Movers, who conquered their fifth straight win to gain a share of lead with idle RC Cola-Army.
But the day belonged to Fajardo.
The 22-year old La Salle star took charge of the playmaking chore as she registered 29 excellent sets, completely outplaying her counterpart, Janet Serafica, who had only nine excellent sets.
More than that, Fajardo officially became the third member of the prestigious PSL All-Star squad that will see action in the FIVB Women’s Club World Championship at the Mall of Asia Arena from Oct. 18 to 23.
No less than PSL president Ramon Suzara and Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI) vice-president Peter Cayco awarded the golden ticket to Fajardo.
