Lindsay Stalzer finally made her debut and towed F2 Logistics to a 23-25, 25-23, 25-21, 25-22 win over United VC in the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix yesterday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
The 30-year old spiker from Illinois was worth the wait as she wreaked havoc at the firing end to keep the Cargo Movers unbeaten.
Stalzer, who missed F2 Logistics’ first two games to fulfill a commitment in Indonesia, fired 25 kills and five blocks to finish with 30 points while Becky Perry chipped in 16 markers for the former champion.
F2 Logistics head coach Ramil de Jesus said Stalzer’s presence boosted their campaign against a UVC squad that parades US NCAA Division I standouts like Fil-Americans Kalei Mau and Alohi Robbins-Hardy as well as imports Tai Manu-Olevao and Yaasmeen Bedart-Ghani.
“If Lindsay wasn’t here, we would have probably lost, 3-0,” said de Jesus after plucking their third win.
After knotting the count at one-set apiece, the Cargo Movers caught fire in the third set.
