AIR Force looks to break Pocari Sweat’s momentum as they face off in the rubber match for the Shakey’s V-League Open Conference title on Monday at the Philsports Arena.
Jet Spikers coach Jasper Jimenez admitted momentum is on Pocari Sweat after a four-set victory on Saturday, but they are confident of finishing the conference with a big win.
“Siguro may advantage sa kanila, sa amin ’yung adjustment talaga, kailangan ’yung togetherness ng team, ’yung mindset nila sasabihan namin, umabot tayo ng Game Three, kailangan lumapit talaga tayo, first time dumating sa atin ito, huwag na namin pakawalan,” he said.
Jimenez said he felt Air Force had a good chance to win the second match but players simply lost steam.
“’Yung first set dun binuhos lahat. Parang naubos kami dun, parang dun binigay lahat, ‘yung second set amin na din sana ‘yun, so dun sa breaks of the game siguro nadali,” he added.
“’Yung character siguro nila nawala, tsaka yung dapat mag-step,” Jimenez said.
“Ganda nang laro talaga, halos perfect, pagdating ng second set, nagerror na kami sa service, hindi na makatiming sa block,” he added.
