PETRON and F2 Logistics try to arrange a dream finals duel when they take on dangerous foes in the sudden-death semifinals of the Philippine Superliga Invitational Conference today at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center.
After topping Group C with a perfect record, the Blaze Spikers shift their title quest to a higher gear when they take on Foton at 3 p.m. while the Cargo Movers collide with Cignal in the 5 o’clock main encounter of the most prestigious women’s club tournament in the country.
F2 Logistics, which finished the preliminaries with a 5-1 mark, is tipped to go all out as it welcomes the return of Fil-Am spiker Kalei Mau, who missed five of their six matches due to an ankle injury.
In their 25-22, 25-15, 25-15 win over Sta. Lucia, Mau was impressive, delivering 11 points to compliment the Cargo Movers’ balanced attack featuring Ara Galang, Kianna Dy, Aby Maraño and Majoy Baron.
“Having Kalei back is a big advantage for us,” F2 Logistics coach Ramil de Jesus said, adding Mau gives them the versatility and positive outlook they need for what looms to be another tight and grueling race for the crown.
