Games Today (Filoil Flying V Center)
4 p.m. — Sta. Lucia vs Generika-Ayala
6 p.m. — Petron vs F2 Logistics
It will be a clash of titans when league-leading Petron takes on rival F2 Logistics in the second round of the Philippine Superliga Grand Prix today at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan.
In their initial encounter this season, Petron drew first blood, 23-25, 25-15, 25-22, 25-18, behind one-two punch Katherine Bell and Stephanie Niemer, who combined for 53 points. Bell dominated with31 points off 26 attacks while Niemer contributed 22 points and 23 digs.
Meanwhile, American star Lindsay Stalzer – who helped the Blaze Spikers win the crown last year against the Cargo Movers – finished with 21 points against her former squad.
Both coming off victories, the Blaze Spikers hunt for their 11th straight win while the second-seed Cargo Movers look to keep rising PLDT Power Hitters at bay as they eye a ninth victory.
Last Tuesday, Bell produced 19 points against PLDT to spearhead the defending champs to a 25-18, 25-21, 25-14 triumph.
A Stalzer-less F2, on the other hand, relied on Becky Perry and Ara Galang who scored 14 points each to earn a 25-21, 25-19, 25-19 victory Thursday against lowly Sta. Lucia.
At 4 p.m., meanwhile, the Lady Realtors face the Generika-Ayala Lifesavers.
