MANILA, Philippines – With a valiant victory over Gerflor, Foton won the Premier Volleyball League Invitational Conference. The spark that ignited Foton’s victory came from Shaya Adorador’s spectacular 22-point performance. With his consistent performance in the middle, Seth Rodriguez delivered 13 significant points to the team’s score, and Jasmine Nabor, a special guest, and Mary Dapol each chipped in seven points to show off their versatility.
Despite a spirited comeback by Gerflor in the fourth set, Nene Bautista’s finesse and talent were crucial for Foton as she scored nine points right when it counted. Despite having four players with double-digit scoring totals, Gerflor was unable to overcome Bautista’s endgame brilliance. Fans are hungry for more spectacular matches in the PVL Invitational Conference after watching this contest, which was an exhilarating exhibition of talent and grit.
