Ces Molina headlines Nationals’ victory over PSL Sparkle, drops 17 markers

National team mainstay Ces Molina took over in the Nationals onslaught against PSL selection team Sparkle, 25-12, 25-18, 25-18 in the Philippine Superliga Super Cup held at the Filoil Flying V Arena today.

The open hitter registered 12 attacks, three aces, and two blocks for a 17-point output in straight sets. Molina waxed earlier as she delivered nine of her 17 points in the first set.

The national team fired from all cylinders as they overpowered team Sparkle in attacks 45-21. Molina credits this good showing to their recent training camp in Japan.

“Marami kaming na-improve dahil sa mga training camps namin sa labas. Hopefully, magtuloy-tuloy pa ‘yun,” she said.

She likewise lauded the more improved team chemistry eam’s chemistry. She said this is needed as the country seeks to end a long-medal drought in the SEA Games this November.

“Siguro makikita naman sa laro namin na talagang nag-gegel na ‘yung team. Marami pang kulang pero marami pang preparation. ‘Yung time namin kahit maikli lang, sisiguraduhin namin na makakapagprepare kami nang maayos,” she said.

The Nationals will face University of Tsukoba for their last tune-up game in the PSL Super Cup tomorrow.
