F2 Logistics showed championship composure during crunch time for a refreshing straight-set victory, 26-24, 26-24, 25-17, on Thursday against PLDT to barge into the finals of the Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix 2019 at the FilOil Flying V Center in San Juan.
Trailing in sets one and two, the Cargo Movers displayed grind towards the endgame before flexing their muscles in the third to sweep the Power Hitters and booked their sixth straight finals stint.
With the win, the Ramil de Jesus-mentored spikers set up another Finals duel with the unbeaten defending champs Petron.
F2 Logistics played the percentage and banked on Lindsay Stalzer, who is tipped to lead them anew when they try to dethrone her former team.
