Petron dethrones F2 Logistics


Petron repeated over F2 Logistics 26-24, 24-26, 24-26, 25-23, 15-11 in an epic duel to capture the Philippine Super Liga All-Filipino Conference crown at The Arena in San Juan.

The victory allowed the Blaze Spikers to regain the title they won two years ago. Petron also ended a two-year futility after beating the defending champion Cargo Movers 2-0 in the best of three finals.

Skipper Ces Molina came through in the clutch to lead the Blaze Spikers break from a 7-7 deadlock in the deciding set. Molina scored five of Petron’s final eight points then watch F2 commit a net violation to yield the title.

Sisi Rondina led Petron with 16 points while Aiza Maizo-Pontillas added 14. Molina finished the game with 10 points.

Ara Galang scored a game-high 20 points with Abby Maraño chipping in 14 markers for F2 Logistics.
