04:02 AM October 16, 2019

MALOLOS CITY—Packing firepower the enemy didn’t come close to handling, Petron on Tuesday made quick work of Foton, 25-17, 25-14, 25-16, to barge into the title match of the Philippine Superliga Invitational Conference at Malolos Sports and Convention Center here.

Sisi Rondina typified the Blaze Spikers’ dominant stand, scoring 17 points as Petron got it done in just 79 minutes.


Frances Molina and Chloe Cortez were also instrumental, chipping in 12 and 10 points, respectively, to keep the Blaze Spikers unbeaten in seven matches, including a sweep of the eliminations.

With the win, Petron will be facing the survivor of F2 Logistics-Cignal match going on at press time. The championship will also be a one-game affair, set Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.


Foton, on the other hand, will take on the loser of the other semifinal battle in a one-game bronze medal match also on Thursday.

“It feels so good to be back in the Finals,” said Petron coach Shaq Delos Santos, who stressed that the Invitationals crown is the only jewel missing in their collection.
