CIGNAL salvaged third place by downing Foton, 25-16, 25-18, 20-25, 25-22, on Tuesday in the Philippine Super Liga All-Filipino Conference at the Muntinlupa Sports Center.
Royse Tubino scored 17 points, Jovelyn Gonzaga added 15, Maica Morada chipped in 12 and Rachel Anne Daquis had 10 for the HD Spikers.
Cignal coach George Pascua felt relieved that they ended the conference with a win after a disappointing semis loss to F2 Logistics.
“Na-meet naman namin ang expectation ng management na at least manalo,” he said. “Syempre sabi nga nila kapag hindi para sa'yo, hindi meant to be.”
“Tinake na lang namin na lesson learned ang nangyari sa amin tapos pinractice na lang namin ang mga lapses namin,” he added.
Jaja Santiago tallied 21 points for Foton, while EJ Laure added 12.
