Galang, Baron spark Cargo Movers back to win column


Defending champion F2 Logistics vented its ire on Marinerang Pilipina, 25-14, 25-17, 25-11 in the second game of a Philippine Superliga Invitational Conference double header at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Following a frustrating 22-25, 23-25, 18-25 loss to rival Petron last Saturday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, the Cargo Movers bounced back with an easy win as Ara Galang, Majoy Baron and Kianna Dy provided the fire power on offense.

Galang delivered 17 points off 14 kills and three blocks while Baron and Dy chipped in 12 points apiece and Desiree Cheng added nine markers and 13 digs for the Cargo Movers, who drew an explosive game from setter Kim Fajardo.

Fajardo, who struggled last conference with a finger injury, scattered the offensive wealth with 21 excellent sets.

“Our previous lost was a wake-up call but knowing my team, they adjusted right away,” said F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus.

“The players showed the real game of F2 Logistics unlike our last game.”
F2 Logistics improved to 1-1 win-loss record in Pool B as it sent Marinerang Pilipina to its second straight defeat in their group.
