Dacquis, HD Spikers back on winning track

442

Cignal proved steadier in the clutch as it whipped a hard-fighting Generika-Ayala in thrilling five sets, 26-24, 17-25, 25-22, 20-25, 17-15, to bounce back in the win column of Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the Alonte Sports Center in Biñan City, Laguna.

Despite squandering a 2-1 set lead and trailing in the fifth set, the HD Spikers never wavered, especially skipper Rachel Anne Daquis, who erased the two match point advantages of the Lifesavers to tie the decider, 15-all.

Then, Bang Pineda committed an attack error before AC Masangkay delivered the final blow that helped Cignal escape the cardiac game.

The HD Spikers were emotional after improving their record to a 2-2 win-loss record as they bounced back from a frustrating setback to Foton last Wednesday, where head coach Edgar Barroga was slapped with a red card and sent to the penalty box.
