F2 Logistics Coach Ramil De Jesus wants to sustain their momentum from morale-boosting wins the last time when they try to formalize their third seeding in the 2016 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the Gen. Trias Sports Center in Cavite.
The Cargo Movers tote a 6-3 win-loss record following victories against powerhouse Foton Tornadoes and the Generika Lifesavers last week, and another win would bolster their campaigns in the sudden-death playoffs for the remaining two semis berths.
But it would not be a walk in the park as they are set to take on the RC Cola-Army Lady Troopers at 6 p.m.
“The team just told me that they wanted to win. So I’m doing my best in guiding them to achieve that goal,” said De Jesus, who also searches for his first Grand Prix title.
F2 Logistics is expected to unleash its all-around game anew after pumping in 52 attacks, 12 blocks, and nine aces in its 25-17, 25-27, 25-19, 25-14 triumph over Generika.
Six-foot-8 Hayley Spelman and 6-foot-1 Sydney Kemper banner the Cargo Movers with their height and might behind the net, while getting significant contributions from former La Salle standouts Ara Galang, Kim Fajardo, and Mika Reyes.
RC Cola is unfazed.
Eager to recover from its 25-20, 20-25, 29-27, 21-25, 15-7 defeat against Foton that put them at 3-5, the Lady Troopers lean on the trio of Kierra Holts, Jovelyn Gonzaga and Royse Tubino.
Meanwhile, early semifinalist Foton (7-1) seeks to strengthen its bid for the No. 1 seeding when it tackles Cignal (1-7) at 4 p.m.
A win for the Tornadoes would tie them with fellow semifinalist Petron on top.
