The unbeaten leader drubbed Cocolife, 26-24, 25-18, 21-25, 25-20, to keep its perfect record in the Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga Grand Prix at Filoil Flying V Centre.

It was the seventh straight win in the first round of preliminaries for Petron, which also stopped Cocolife’s four-game winning run.

The Blaze Spikers, though, aren’t assured of anything yet as the second phase of eliminations will have all teams battling each other again.


Hurley sat it out due to injury but it didn’t matter for the Blaze Spikers, who encountered a rough patch only late in the third set when they squandered a 17-12 lead to lose the frame.

But they returned even stronger in the fourth with Lindsay Stalzer producing 22 points, including the winning smash from back row.

Sara Klisura fired 38 points but could not prevent the Asset Managers from absorbing a third loss in seven matches.

In the first game, defending champion F2 Logistics’ seamless offense proved enough to disrupt Cignal’s connection.

The Cargo Movers flustered the HD Spikers throughout the match to score a 25-21, 25-17, 25-14 win. Last season’s MVP Maria Jose Perez of Venezuela led the assault with 16 points as F2 rose to 4-1.
