Foton loses

Foton Pilipinas absorbed a pair of sorry setbacks in its campaign in the 2016 Select Tuna Thailand Volleyball League at the Wi Sommai gymnasium in Sisaket Province, Thailand.

The Tornadoes fell prey to Bangkok Glass, 20-25, 22-25, 25-20, 18-25, on Thursday following a three-set meltdown to EPA Sisaket, 13-25, 10-25, 18-25, in their debut late Wednesday in the tourney that serves as warmup for the AVC Asian Women’s Club Championship set from Sept. 3-11 at the Alonte Sports Center in Biñan, City.

Foton Pilipinas coach Fabio Menta said the setbacks were expected as they have yet to find their rhythm and develop chemistry, especially with the inclusion of imports Ariel Usher and Lindsay Stalzer as well as guest players Jen Reyes of Petron, Aby Maraño of F2 Logistics and Jovelyn Gonzaga of RC Cola-Army.
