With Kalei Mau firing at will, F2 Logistics ambushed PetroGazz, 25-16, 25-23, 25-14 on Monday night, keeping its record clean after three games and making dramatic inroads to its first title in two years.
Mau scored 21 points for the Cargo Movers, who are now the only unbeaten team in the Philippine National Volleyball Federation Champions League women’s championships.
“I think we did pretty good. I can’t say I did well, but it was my teammates,” said Mau. “Iris (Tolenada) and I worked very hard on our connection during our bubble training. So am really, really very proud of her. Without her I couldn’t make those points.”
New recruit Tolenada, filling in for the absent Kim Fajardo, had 22 excellent sets as she started to jell with the Cargo Movers who have been inactive throughout the pandemic.
Chery Tiggo and Tuguegarao Perlas Spikers bounced back with wins earlier after defeating regional champs California Precision Sports and Baguio Highlanders, respectively.
The Pro Crossovers walked the tightrope before clipping the CPS Spikers, 25-22, 27-25, 25-23, for their second win in three matches. In the first match, the Perlas Spikers handed the Lady Highlanders their third straight defeat with a 25-10, 25-5, 25-14 decision. INQ
