Games Today: (Filoil Flying V Centre)
4 p.m. – Cignal vs Sta. Lucia
6 p.m. – Generika-Ayala vs Foton
Red-hot Foton seeks to keep the flame burning when it clashes with Generika-Ayala in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference today at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Action fires off at 6 p.m. following the battle between Cignal and lowly Sta. Lucia in the 4 p.m. appetizer.
Towering sisters Dindin Manabat and Jaja Santiago continue to star as the Tornadoes coasted to their fifth straight victory following a 25-21, 25-21, 25-15 win over PLDT Home Fibr late Thursday.
Manabat delivered a game-high 14 points while Santiago chipped in 10 kills, two blocks and an ace to finish with 13 points to help Foton collect its sixth win in nine matches.
Despite the winning streak, Foton head coach Aaron Velez refuses to get complacent, knowing the second round will get even tougher.
“We’re satisfied, but we have a lot of things to do,” Velez said. “We can’t be contented because there are still things that we have to work out as a group for us to win convincingly.”
