Cuban delivers for Cignal side


    BACOOR CITY. — Simon Liannes Castaneda delivered the goods as Cignal beat Generika-Ayala 19-25, 25-18, 25-20, 25-20 in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix Tuesday at the Bacoor Strike Gym here.

    Despite barely having time to dust off the rust after arriving in the country only last Saturday, the Cuban fired 24 kills for 29 points for the HD Spikers in the women’s club league bankrolled by Cocolife, Sogo, Eurotel, Sweet and Fit Stevia, UCPB Gen, Team Rebel Sports and Bizooku.

    “Well I’m very happy. Actually, she barely had any sleep, but she did her best for our team,” Cignal coach Edgar Barroga said of the Cuban who landed on their laps after their negotiation with two other imports bogged down.
