It may just have been one set, but the magnitude of PSL-F2 Logistics Manila’s shocker over defending champions Eczacibasi Vitra Istanbul is the first step to an eruption waiting to happen.

The defending champions went through a test against the hosts and overcame the Filipinos in four sets, 25-17, 25-17, 23-25, 25-14, in their final group stage match in the FIVB Women’s Club Women’s Championship Friday at Mall of Asia Arena.

That 23-25 dent in Eczacibasi’s otherwise immaculate score sheet was the sign PSL-F2 Logistics head coach Moro Branislav was looking for as the catalyst for Philippine volleyball’s quick improvement.

“This is a very important experience for the Philippine players, I guarantee you, after this competition, Philippine players will be better in the ASEAN level,” said Branislav. “All 14 players were smiling and that’s important my work, I like that good atmosphere.”
