F2 spells trouble for Army
Riding on a three-game winning streak, F2 Logistics has emerged as the hottest team in the league after a run highlighted by an upset of erstwhile unbeaten Foton.
F2 coach Ramil de Jesus said the desire to win comes from the players themselves. And it showed.
“We’re not doing anything special, they (players) just told me that they wanted to win,” said De Jesus. “So I’m doing my best in guiding them to achieve that goal.”
That spells trouble for struggling RC Cola-Army when they clash at 6 p.m. today in the Asics-Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at Gen. Trias Sports Center in Cavite.
Foton collides with Cignal in the opener at 4 p.m.
“Although we don’t have a chance for the third spot anymore, we will still do our best to win over F2 Logistics [and Cignal this week] to gain momentum in the playoffs,” said RC Cola-Army coach Kungfu Reyes.
The three-time champion Lady Troopers hope to come out strong against the star-studded F2 cast, who are led by imports Hayley Spelman and Sydney Kemper, offense threats Ara Galang and Cha Cruz, and block specialists Aby Maraño and Mika Reyes.
