Foton keeps Marinerang Pilipina winless, attains win number three

Foton attained win number three as they kept Marinerang Pilipina winless, 27-25, 25-15, 25-20, in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the Bulacan Sports Complex.

Unlike their last game against PLDT Home Fibr, the Lady Tornadoes are more composed and collected as they made quick work of the Lady Skippers in straight-sets.

Setter Gyzelle Sy also lauded the team for their display of mental toughness. For her, this character was not present during the PLDT game.

“Siguro para sa akin ‘yung mental toughness namin kasi noong against PLDT once na nalalamangan kami, medyo bumibitaw na ‘yung team. Kailangan naming i-improve ‘yung mental toughness namin,” Sy said, who had 18 excellent sets and four aces.

Foton lead Marinerang Pilipina in attacks, where they scored 38 points as opposed to 28 of the Lady Skippers. But what spelled the difference was Foton’s blocking as they had 13 kill blocks in three sets.

The Lady Tornadoes are up against Cignal on Tuesday.
