Sta. Lucia posted its first win after squeaking past Generika-Ayala, 21-25, 25-21, 23-25, 25-15, 15-7, in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix Tuesday at Bacoor Sports Complex in Cavite.

Imports Bohdana Anisova and MJ Philips combined for 50 points to lead the Lady Realtors, who bounced back from a four-set loss to Petron on Saturday.


Anisova, who is a former Ukranian national team player, pumped in 28 points, built on 22 attacks with four service aces while Philips added 22 points.

Sta. Lucia coach George Pascua liked what he saw from his team especially with the way it overcame a bad start.


“I’m satisfied, but there were still some lapses in the first and third sets,” said Pascua, a three-time PSL champion.

“Although we struggled in our reception, I’m glad that our key players are slowly adjusting. We have a veteran setter in Rubie (de Leon) so she already knew how to make the players work as one solid unit.”

Rubie De Leon ended the marathon match that lasted for over two hours with a heady play that caught the Lifesavers sleeping.

Generika, which drew 27 points from American import Symone Hayden, dropped to 0-2. The Lifesavers lost to Foton in the season opener three days ago.
