/ 12:05 AM October 27, 2014

RC COLA-AIR FORCE survived a late-charging Generika squad, 25-20, 25-23, 18-25, 27-25, Saturday night to register its second win in the women’s division of the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix presented by Asics at Sto. Domingo Coliseum in Ilocos Sur.

Import Emily Brown produced 19 kills and two blocks and local star Joy Cases added 17 kills and two blocks to power the Raiders to second with a 2-1 record.

The Raiders, who dropped their opening game to Cignal HD,  appeared headed for an easy win  with a trouble-free first two sets anchored on Brown’s well-timed shots and Cases’ relentless attack.

But they relaxed in the third set and allowed the Life Savers to claw back through the heroics of Russian tower of power Natalia Korobkova.
