Customs routs Coast Guard to enter V-League semis
Customs bagged a spot in the Final Four after a rout of Coast Guard, 25-18, 25-12, 25-18, in the Shakey’s V-League Season 13 Reinforced Conference Wednesday.
At 4-2, The Transformers joined University of Santo Tomas (5-1) and Pocari Sweat (4-1) in the next round of the season-ending conference with Bali Pure (3-1) hoping to complete the semifinals’ cast by the end of the day.
Alyssa Valdez, the league’s leading scorer, finished with 14 points while Thai reinforcement Kanjana Kuthaisong added seven points in just two sets.
The victory came four days after the Transformers suffered a surprise three-set setback to the Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors.
“We’re really happy to win, this is a confidence-booster as we head to the semis,” said Valdez. “We still have to learn from our mistakes, the little things inside the court which make the difference at the end of the game.”
Sam Dawson fired 11 hits for Coast Guard, which reeled to its sixth straight loss.
