2 p.m. – F2 Logistics vs Petron
4 p.m. – RC Cola-Army vs Generika
6 p.m. – Standard Insurance-Navy vs Foton
Streaking F2 Logistics and RC Cola-Army aim to tighten their grip of the top spot when they clash against separate opponents today in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the Batangas City Coliseum.
The Cargo Movers battle the Petron Tri-Activ Spikers at 2 p.m., while the Lady Troopers tangle with the Generika Lifesavers at 4 p.m. in the first out-of-town matches this season.
Both F2 Logistics and RC Cola-Army seek to keep their respective records spotless with their identical 5-0 win-loss records, while Petron and Generika are not far behind with 4-1 and 2-4 cards.
“Petron is a dangerous team,” said F2 Logistics coach Ramil de Jesus. “We know that they want to get back on top, so we have to be ready for all the challenges that they will throw at us.”
Aby Maraño and Ara Galang will continue to spearhead the Cargo Movers after conspiring for 22 kills in their 26-24, 25-16, 25-14 triumph over Standard Insurance Navy two days back, while ample support will be coming from Kim Dy, Mika Reyes and Cha Cruz.
Petron, for its part, tries to follow up its 25-18, 25-10, 25-22, 25-12 win over Amy’s Kitchen last week with Aiza Pontillas, Ces Molina, Remy Palma and Bernadeth Pons forming the team’s core.
Like F2 Logistics, RC Cola will parade a formidable and experienced lineup with Jovelyn Gonzaga, Rachel Anne Daquis and Royse Tubino.
Meanwhile, Foton (3-3) collide with Standard Insurance Navy (2-3) at 6 p.m.
Cong. Marvey Maraño and Batangas City mayor Beverly Dimacuha will lead in welcoming the players and officials of the league as it coincides with the city’s weeklong Sublian Festival.
