F2 Logistics improved to 2-1.
“Ngayon panalo kami pero ‘di pa kami satisfied sa performance,” said F2 Logistics coach Arnold Laniog. “Kasi although straight sets pero ‘yung ine-expect namin na performance ‘di pa lumabas sa game kanina.”
“Chemistry wise, although sila na ang magkakasama even before, ‘di pa ganun same as before,” he added.
Aby Maraño and Cha Cruz-Behag combined for 16 points for F2 Logistics in the one-hour and 24-minute match.
