Game Today (The Arena, San Juan City)
7 p.m. – F2 Logistics vs Petron
F2 Logistics is out to complete one of the biggest upsets in league history when it goes for a title sweep of the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix best-of-three finals against favorite Petron today at The Arena in San Juan City.
Intense volleyball action fires off at 7 p.m. with the Cargo Movers looking to bank on the momentum they gained from an impressive 25-20, 16-25, 25-23, 25-23 win in Game 1 of the women’s club league broadcasted by ESPN5 and 5Plus.
The Cargo Movers played like champions in the opening salvo of this series that that has Asics, Mueller, Mikasa, Senoh, Team Rebel Sports, Bizooku, UCPB Gen, Cocolife, Hotel Sogo and Data Project as sponsors.
Lindsay Stalzer and Maria Jose Perez, two imports who thrive when the stakes are high, were almost unstoppable as they towed the Cargo Movers to a red-hot start before unleashing a strong finishing kick in the third and fourth sets to shock the erstwhile unbeaten Blaze Spikers.
Perez, the Most Valuable Player two years ago, fired 24 points with 11 excellent receptions while Stalzer torched her former team with 21 points and 17 digs to put the Cargo Movers on the brink of one the biggest upsets in PSL history since RC Cola-Army stunned the Thailand juniors team in the gold-medal match of the Invitational Conference in 2016.
Middle blockers Majoy Baron and Aby Marano were also instrumental as they registered six of their 10 blocks in the fourth set, leaving Petron imports Stephanie Niemer and Katherine Bell struggling for form.
