PSL: Petron still unscathed after ousting Marinerang Pilipina
MANILA, Philippines–Petron let loose a big finishing kick to boot out Marinerang Pilipina, 25-22, 25-22, 25-8, late Thursday and clinch a semifinal seat in the Philippine Superliga Invitational at Malolos Sports and Convention Center in Bulacan.
The Blaze Spikers didn’t hold punches against the young, inexperienced Lady Skippers to chalk their fourth win in as many games, formally making the next round.
Marinerang Pilipina sank to its fourth defeat to bow out of contention.
But despite the lopsided score in the third, Petron team captain said it wasn’t an easy win for them.
“Marinera made us work very hard, and in the first two sets we gave away points through attack errors,” said Molina in Filipino.
“But in the third set we limited our errors and made quick plays,” added the national team member who accounted for 12 points for the Blaze Spikers.
