Games Today (Filoil Flying V Centre)
2 p.m. – Generika-Ayala vs Marinerang Pilipina
4:15 p.m. – Sta. Lucia vs Foton
7 p.m. – F2 Logistics vs PLDT
Foton parades its retooled roster while F2 Logistics shoots for its second win when they battle separate foes in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference today at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
New-look Tornadoes clash with Sta. Lucia at 4:15 p.m. while the Cargo Movers take on PLDT Home Fibr in the 7 p.m. nightcap of this prestigious women’s club tourney bankrolled by SOGO, Eurotel, PCSO, Cocolife, UCPB Gen, Mueller, Senoh, Asics, Bizooku and One Sport.
Meanwhile, Generika-Ayala and Marinerang Pilipina seek to bounce back from their opening-day setback when they collide in the 2 p.m. encounter in this midseason tourney that also has Team Rebel Sport as official outfitter and Mikasa as official ball.
Filipino-American Kalei Mau didn’t see action in the opening day for the Cargo Movers as head coach Ramil de Jesus gave her a little more time to adjust and study his system.
Still, the Cargo Movers remained unstoppable dominating the Lifesavers in straight sets, 25-12, 25-21, 25-17, last Saturday.
Mau remains a game-time decision, but de Jesus has a deep roster with Kianna Dy returning form injury to join the star-studded core of Aby Marano, Desiree Cheng, Majoy Baron, Ara Galang and Dawn Macandili.
“Having my players from La Salle and with Kianna returning is a big help,” said De Jesus, who won the Grand Prix silver despite a depleted roster.
“At least now I can rotate a lot of players.”
It, however, won’t be a walk in a park for F2 Logistics as PLDT is tipped to bring its experience from a pocket tournament in Perth, where Gretchel Soltones, Aiko Urdas, Jasmine Nabor and Jerili Malabanan battled some of the best club teams in the city.
