RC Cola-Army pounds misfiring Cignal to roll to second PSL win

RC Cola-Army pounced on a listless Cignal crew to keep its PSL All-Filipino Conference record clean after 2 games Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Centre. 

Playing fluid volleyball, the Lady Troopers jumped the gun on the HD Spikers, who were unable to get their rhythm in the 25-17, 25-17, 25-20 Army triumph.

Jovelyn Gonzaga was the lone player from both teams to hit double digits with 13 points, but 8 more Lady Troopers contributed in the scoring column led by Rachel Daquis’s 8 markers and reserve Nene Bautista’s 7 points.

Trying to bounce back from a loss to F2 Logistics last week, Cignal found RC Cola-Army a tough nut to crack, as they repeatedly fumbled spiking attempts and made just 23 of 124 tries — a measly 18.5%.

In contrast, the Lady Troopers spiked 29.2%, not exactly an impressive number but just enough to shut the door on the HD Spikers. — By Joyce Palad
