Games Today (The Arena, San Juan City)
4 p.m. – Petron vs Sta. Lucia
6 p.m. – F2 Logistics vs Foton
The real battle begins as heavyweights Petron and F2 Logistics tackle separate foes in the quarterfinals of the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix today at The Arena in San Juan City.
The Blaze Spikers clash with lowly Sta. Lucia at 4 p.m. while the Cargo Movers confront Foton in the 6 p.m. encounter of the tourney bankrolled by Asics, Mueller, Mikasa, Senoh, Team Rebel Sports, Bizooku, UCPB Gen, Cocolife, Hotel Sogo and Data Project.
After sweeping the 14-game preliminaries, the Blaze Spikers emerged on top, giving them the right to face eighth seed Lady Realtors armed with a twice-to-beat edge in the quarterfinals.
On the same note, the Cargo Movers will face the Tornadoes with a similar incentive after wrapping up the preliminaries at the second spot with an 11-3 win-loss record in this battle that also has ESPN5 and 5Plus as broadcast partners.
Still, it isn’t enough for F2 Logistics to be confident heading into the quarterfinals.
