Lazard, Dahlke bring PLDT to win column
PLDT Home Fibr flirted with disaster before escaping with a thrilling, 24-26, 25-23, 18-25, 25-21, 15-8 victory over a crippled Generika-Ayala squad in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at the Bacoor Strike Gym in Bacoor City.
American imports Grace Lazard and Kendra Dahlke came through with clutch points for PLDT, which finally barged into the win column after back-to-back setbacks.
Lazard delivered 22 points while Dahlke had 21 markers as PLDT took advantage of Lifesavers’ import Nikolle del Rio of Brazil, who crashed with an ankle injury in her debut game.
“We needed this win to lift everyone’s spirits,” said Lazard.
Generika-Ayala remains winless in three starts.
