With F2 Logistics finding its winning footing once more, outside hitter Kalei Mau is raring to claim more victories as the Philippine SuperLiga (PSL) All Filipino Conference 2019 enters the quarterfinals round.
Mau put on another monster performance as the Cargo Movers halted a two-game slide and returned to the win column at the expense of Cignal, 25-18, 25-14, 25-22, during their second-round meeting earlier.
The Fil-Hawaiian spiker did most of the damage for the ladies in yellow — who wrapped up the prelims with 12 wins and two losses — as she fired 20 points off 16 kills, two blocks, and two aces.

With the all important win, the Ramil de Jesus-mentored spikers could finally breathe a sigh of relief as they recovered from two back-to-back losses that hindered them from finishing on top of the standings.
For Mau, the past week was really tough for F2 Logistics, who went through two five-setter matches in a matter of two days, of which both ended on a sour note.
“It’s actually been such a challenge. Like we’ve needed thst. I think we worked hard every week but it’s been a different week,” she said.
“Coaches have brought out a lot of our weaknesses. We’ve kind of went straight to training in the gym with the weights, protecting ourselves from injuries, and then just liked the heaviness of back-to-back games.”

Last Thursday, the Cargo Movers could only watch as Petron smeared their erstwhile unblemished record as the latter completed a come-from-behind win.
Two days later at Cagayan de Oro, the ladies in yellow succumbed to PLDT’s gutsy stand and dropped their second game of the conference.
“Petron on one game, five sets, and then PLDT who saw that this was a moment to jump on us. Every team has that, and every team has to go through that,” the national team member said.
Now, with her team back in killer shape, Mau said she will give her hundred percent as she can’t wait to rack up more wins for F2 Logistics, who will take on Sta. Lucia in the do-or-die quarterfinals.
“I just can’t wait ’cause the streak has started again and I’m hungry. I wanna win. I wanna go all out all the way,” she said.
