The Angels improved to 1-1 in the six-team round-robin quarterfinals while the Fighting Warays are yet to win a game.

PetroGazz head coach Jerry Yee said they were able cool heated heads in the team after the Angels lost to Pocari Sweat-Air Force in four sets, 18-25, 25-20, 26-24, 25-21, in their first game.

Yee said Anastasiia Trach got frustrated in the last game after not receiving enough touches while in position.

“We were okay in our first game but we let it go because there was a small conflict within the team,” said Yee in Filipino. “They couldn’t get the ball to our left-hander when she’s in position so she became frustrated.”

“Fingers were pointed, people were blamed, but those kinds of things happen.”

Trach finished with 11 points against the Fighting Warays while Alyssa Layug added nine.

Amporn Hyapha had 16 points to lead the Fighting Warays.
