    Rex Intal, Mark Alfafara show way as Cignal completes sweep of Air Force in PVL finals

    Jun 13, 2017

    CIGNAL outlasted Air Force, 17-25, 27-25, 27-25, 16-25, 15-10, to claim the title in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference men's division on Tuesday at the PhilSports Arena.

    Rex Intal and Mark Alfafara led the way for the HD Spikers with 17 points apiece, Peter Torres scored 13 and Ysay Marasigan added 12 points.

    Cignal evened its championship record against Air Force at 2-2.

    The HD Spikers bowed to the Jet Spikers in last year's Spikers Turf Open and Reinforced Conferences.

    "Maganda na 'yung team nila so noong pagkatalo noong previous years I just gave them the confidence," said Cignal coach Oliver Almadro, who also steered Ateneo to three straight UAAP championships.

    "I instilled in them 'yung parang attitude na never give up," he added. "'Yun lang naman ang binigay ko sa kanila this time. They are already a talented team they just have to believe in themselves and they just have to combine their talents and efforts."

    Bryan Bagunas had 23 points, Ranran Abdilla added 17, while Fauzi Ismail and Kim Malabunga each had 11 markers for Air Force.
