F2 LOGISTICS dominated struggling Sta. Lucia, 25-15, 25-14, 25-21, to close in on a first-round sweep in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference on Thursday at the Natalio G Velez Sports & Cultural Center in Silay City, Negros Occidental.
Filipino-American Kalei Mau led the way with 14 points off 10 kills, three service aces and a block, while making 13 digs and seven excellent receptions, as the Cargo Movers scored their sixth win in as many outings.
Ara Galang scored 11, skipper Aby Marano added 10 points, Michelle Cobb made 20 excellent sets, while libero Dawn Macandili had 19 digs.
F2 Logistics looks to complete a sweep of the first round as it faces winless Marinerang Pilipina on Thursday next week in Muntinlupa City.
“As I’ve said before, we’re not after the record in the elimination round because it will have no bearing in the playoffs,” said F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus told reporters.
“All we’re looking to get and develop here is our confidence heading into the quarterfinals where any team can be knocked out regardless of the record and the placing,” the three-time PSL champion coach added.
Nobody scored in double figures for the Lady Realtors as they absorbed their fifth straight defeat in six matches. Rachel Austero and MJ Phillips came up with five points each.
