DIANA Carlos and Aiko Urdas combined for 26 points as the Roger Gorayeb-coached Red Team scored a 25-21, 25-22, 13-25, 25-21 win over the White squad in the Premier Volleyball League All-Star Game on Sunday at The Arena in San Juan.

Gorayeb said he was just happy to give back to the fans and at the same time help the Hero Foundation.

“Masaya kami, unang-una, kasi ito naman ginawa para sa mga fans ng mga batang ito. Pangalawa, para doon sa Hero Foundation, 'yung makatulong kami, makabigay kami ng kasiyahan sa mga tao,” said the veteran mentor.

“Ito na ang soli namin sa suportang binigay nila for the past three conferences at saka very noble 'yung rason ng pagkakaroon nito eh,” he added.

Red Team was one point away from the win, 24-21, but White Team saved two match points before Carlos sealed the victory.

Gorayeb insisted that it was all for fun.

“Wala, kanina lang kami nagkita-kita pati ang kabila. Itong mga batang ito magkakakilala naman sila ‘di ba? No pressure, niloloko ko nga ang mga katabi ko, ‘mag-timeout ka na!’” he shared.

Nicole Tiamzon led the way for White Team, while Isa Molde added 12 and Bea de Leon had 11.
