Important victories Sought After by F2 Logistics and Choco Mucho

Nov 13, 2022

MANILA, Philippines – the Premier Volleyball League makes its debut at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, with rivals F2 Logistics and Choco Mucho attempting to strengthen their respective semifinal aspirations in the Reinforced Conference.

At 5:30 p.m., the unbeaten Creamline Cool Smashers will take on the Cargo Movers, who are now tied for fourth place with the Cignal HD Spikers who aren’t playing. in the wake of the 2:30 pm. The Flying Titans and the winless UAI-Army Lady Troopers square off.

With respective records of 5 to 0 and 5 to 1, Creamline and Chery Tiggo secured their spots in the first two Final Fours, while the Cool Smashers took charge and maintained their chances of setting a grand slam record by defeating the Crossovers in Sta. Rosa was in Laguna on Saturday.

There will be a fierce competition over the next two weeks for the final two semi-final slots, even if 2019 winner Petro Gazz appeared set to secure the third position with a 3 to 1 record. Four other players are still in the running, while one is still pursuing a backdoor exit.

That should make today’s games extremely important for F2 Logistics and Choco Mucho.

The Cargo Movers face a difficult test against the Cool Smashers, who seem uninterested in slowing down despite having secured a berth in the post-elims round, while the Flying Titans appear to have a simpler assignment against the unlucky Lady Troopers.

The top volleybelles in the nation may experience a different playing atmosphere while competing in a bigger arena, such as the Smart Araneta Coliseum, which should further spice up the action leading up to the final seven playdates of the single round robin elimination rounds of the league’s season-ending conference, which is organized by Sports Vision.

Four of the upcoming five PVL games will also take place in the Big Dome, including the contests on Thursday between Cignal and Petro Gazz and Akari and PLDT, as well as the contests on Saturday between Creamline and Army and Petro Gazz and Chery Tiggo.

The Flying Titans, led by locals Kat Tolentino, Des Cheng, Isa Molde, Bea de Leon, and Deanna Wong and foreign import Odina Aliyeva, are eager to square off against the Lady Troopers to equalize their record to 3 to 3. They were hurt by a five-set loss to the Akari Chargers last Thursday that kept them in the semifinal match.

Army, however, has nowhere else to turn with a 0 to 5 card and coach Kungfu Reyes is hoping to draw some form of fire from reinforcement Laura Condotta and local players Honey Royse Tubino, Jovelyn Gonzaga, MJ Pabayo, Jeannete Villareal, and setter Ivy Perez to break the spell.

The Cargo Movers, led by import Lindsay Stalzer and local players Kalei Mau, Aby Marao, Kim Dy, Ivy Lacsina, and Kim Fajardo, have won two straight games after losing their first two due to key players’ health problems. They would, however, require more than just enthusiasm to finish the Cool Smashers’ amazing run, which was supported by Yeliz Basa, Alyssa Valdez, Jema Galanza, top middle Ced Domingo, and playmaker Jia de Guzman.
