Petron turns back F2 Logistics to keep PSL Grand Prix crown
MANILA, Philippines—Petron brushed off a third set jolt to defeat F2 Logistics, 26-24, 25-19, 23-25, 25-19, Saturday night and successfully retain the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix title at FilOil Flying V Center.
The Blaze Spikers counted on imports Khat Bell and Stephanie Niemer to capture their sixth conference title, the most by any team so far.
All in all, Petron won 19 of 20 matches in the conference — including its first 17 games — missing out on the opportunity to sweep the title after dropping Game 1 of the finals.
Niemer scored 29 points, while Khat Bell had 19 points for the Blaze Spikers. They also got ample help from local middle blocker Remy Palma who added 14 markers, including clutch hits in the fourth set.
PLDT wound up third, while Cignal was fourth place.
