    DASMARINAS -Janine Marciano and Frances Molina came up with smart moves which carried them to their first-ever Battle of the Champions title in the 2013 Petron Ladies’ Beach Volleyball Tournament at the De La Salle-Health Sciences Institute sand-court.

    The pair from San Beda found their timing when it mattered most to pull away to an 21-13, 21-12 win over De La Salle-Dasmarinas’ Mariel Desengano and Maribeth Lara.

    “Dumidikit lang kami. Kapag nakakita ng tiyempo para maka-ungos, pull away na kami,” said Molina, a fourth-year marketing student.

    Petron’s Marie Macuja handed the championship trophy to the San Beda pair, which vowed to come back next season to defend their title in the tournament also backed by Molten, Mikasa and Erase Xfoliant.

    Marciano and Molina, who reached the semifinals with their five-game sweep of Group A, made it to the championship round after winning over Letran 1’s Monique Pablo and Queenie Mondejar, 21-15.

    Desengano and Lara fought their way into the finals by blowing past University of the East 1’s Pia Sarmiento and Madel Gavarra in the semis.
