(La Salle Lipa Sentrum, Batangas)
3 p.m. – Amy’s vs Cignal
5 p.m. – Foton vs RC Cola-Army
7 p.m. – F2 Logistics vs Petron
F2 Logistics tries to keep its momentum going when it tangles with Petron today in the second round of the Philippine Superliga (PSL) All-Filipino Conference at the De La Salle Lipa Sentrum in Lipa City, Batangas.
The match is set at 7 p.m. with the Cargo Movers hoping to clinch their second straight victory in this phase.
RC Cola-Army, meanwhile, aims to regain its lost bearings when it clashes with Foton at 5 p.m., while Amy’s Kitchen and Cignal collide in the classification phase at 3 p.m.
Coming off a morale-boosting 25-16, 25-12, 25-15 victory over RC Cola, F2 Logistics is expected to come out smoking anew to stay on track for the top seed in the semifinals.
It was the Cargo Movers’ eighth straight victory since the start of the eliminations after finishing the first round with a perfect 7-0 card.
But Petron, which finished the first round on third place at 5-2, aches to steal the show and snap F2’s winning streak.
“The real battle is in the semifinals and the finals. We just have to be consistent on our game because we know that everybody is out to beat us,” said F2 coach Ramil De Jesus.
The Cargo Movers boast of an intact lineup headed Aby Maraño, Cha Cruz, Mika Reyes and Ara Galang, but expect the Tri-Acti Spikers to retaliate with their own arsenal in Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Maica Morada, Bernadeth Pons and Ces Molina.
RC Cola-Army, still reeling from back-to-back losses to F2 bridging the first and second rounds, is dying to get back into the winning column.
“I think we just have to take those defeats as lessons for our remaining games,” said RC Cola-Army coach Kungfu Reyes, still reliant on Jovelyn Gonzaga and Rachel Anne Daquis to lead the squad against Foton’s own dynamic duo of Jaja Santiago and Cherry Rondina.
