Petron spikers seize second Liga win

/ 02:52 AM October 12, 2016

American import Stephanie Niemer displayed her all-around skills but Petron credited team effort for its 25-17, 25-22, 25-19 win over F2 Logistics yesterday in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Niemer, one of seven foreign players who will represent PSL-F2 Logistics Manila in the FIVB Women’s Club World Championship next week, produced 15 kills, two blocks and four aces for 21 points while Frances Molina chipped in 12 on six kills and six of the team’s total 14 aces.

“I’m happy because our performance is improving every game,” said Petron coach Shaq Delos Santos following the 72-minute win, the Tri-Activ Spikers’ second in as many starts.

“Our offense was on point and our services were very impressive. We just have to work harder in training, especially now that we will be having a three-week break. I know our locals still have something to show,” added Delos Santos.
