Cargo Movers seek semifinal berth vs Lady Realtors
Even in a knockout game where being the higher seed came with no protection, F2 Logistics doesn’t look like it will face any serious worry as it guns for a semifinal berth against Sta. Lucia Realty.
Unless you talk to coach Ramil de Jesus.
“The most dangerous team is the one with nothing to lose and everything to gain,” said De Jesus, whose charges—winners of their first 11 games before suffering five-set defeats late in the preliminaries—are heavily favored to shovel out the Lady Realtors on Saturday.
Sta. Lucia’s long-shot bid for the semifinals lies in the format. With quarterfinal matches outright knockout games, all it takes is a great game coinciding with the Cargo Movers’ poor performance to score an upset.
But that’s asking for a perfect alignment of stars.
The other quarterfinal duel should offer more excitement as Generika-Ayala and Cignal will battle for more or less equal terms as no team owns a big built-in advantage.
The bad news? The survivor of that grueling duel will face No. 1 Petron in the semifinals.
