JOVELYN Gonzaga and Nene Bautista set up a title showdown with Sisi Rondina and Patty Orendain on Sunday in the Philippine Super Liga Beach Volleyball Challenge Cup on Sunday at the MOA Sands by the Bay.
Gonzaga and Bautista, wearing the colors of RC Cola, beat Bang Pineda and Aiza Maizo of Petron XCS, 16-21, 21-13, 16-14. Gonzaga and Bautista beat Maica Morada and Ces Molina in straight sets in the quarterfinals last week.
Rondina and Orendain shook off a sluggish start to turn back Bernadeth Pons and Kylie Atienza of FEU-Petron, 15-21, 21-13, 15-11. Rondina and Orendain downed Jenny delos Reyes and Ginie Sabas also in straight sets last week.
“Nag-improve sila Pons and Atienza as a partner and kami naman nag-enjoy lang kami sa game kasi wala naman kami mapapatunguhan kung mamadaliin naming ang laro and ‘yung mga inensayo namin nilabas lang naming sa laro,” said Rondina.
