Generika whips Marinera in Invitational opener
BACOOR CITY—Generika-Ayala got its Philippine Superliga Invitational Conference bid off to a swashbuckling start on Tuesday by ripping Marinerang Pilipinas, 25-19, 25-23, 25-17, at Bacoor Strike gym here.
The Lifesavers were unrelenting on both sides of the court, with open spikers Fiola Ceballos, Mean Mendrez and Patty Orendain taking turns in humbling the Lady Skippers’ defense.
Ceballos and Mendrez finished with 12 points apiece while Orendain chipped in 10 for the Lifesavers, who needed only one hour and 25 minutes to wrap up the contest in Pool B action.
What made the victory more impressive was the fact that the Lifesavers managed to deliver despite the absence of skipper Angeli Araneta, who suffered a knee injury in the latter part of the All-Filipino Conference last month.
