F2 Logistics battles Foton, eyes win No. 3

/ 05:03 AM June 22, 2019

F2 Logistics shoots for a third straight victory, but will have to go through a wall when it faces a rebound-seeking Foton Blue Energy on Saturday in the Philippine Superliga All Filipino Conference at Imus City Sports Center.

Sta. Lucia will try for a second straight win when it faces PLDT in the other game.

Foton’s twin towers at the net, sisters Jaja Santiago and Dindin Santiago-Manabat, will be the main problem that F2 coach Ramil de Jesus will have to deal with.

“Foton is a tall team. It’s hard to match them,” De Jesus said. “But we already saw them play and we prepared a good game plan against them.”


The Cargo Movers might also want to tear a page out of Generika-Ayala’s playbook.

The Lifesavers negated the Tornadoes’ ceiling by employing power-charged service game, scoring 13 points off aces aside from throwing off Foton’s receives to prevent it from setting its offense.

Despite dominating air space with 12 kill-blocks against five by Generika, Foton ended up losing that match and will hope to bounce back against F2 Logistics.

But the Tornadoes will also need to deal with the firepower of the Cargo Movers, who have potent scorers like Aby Maraño and new find Kalei Mau.


Mau scored 17 points in F2’s 25-15, 27-25, 25-22 victory over PLDT last time around.

“She’s still making some adjustments in training. The good thing is that she’s very open to suggestions and she’s willing to adjust,” said De Jesus.
