Danna Henson, Samantha Dawson show way as Foton evens record and keeps San Jose Builders winless

DANNA Henson and Samantha Dawson led the way as Foton beat New San Jose Builders, 25-16, 23-25, 25-20, 25-17, on Saturday in the Philippine Super Liga Invitational Conference at Malolos Sports and Convention Center.

Henson and Dawson scored 12 points each for the Toplander, who evened their card after a straight-sets opening-day loss to powerhouse RC Cola Army, 17-25, 9-25, 22-25.

Patty Orendain chipped in with 11 points for Foton and coach Ronald Dulay was pleased to see the Toplander play more cohesive this time.

“Problema kasi namin ang blending kasi ilang days pa lang kami naku-kumpleto, mga five days pa lang. Konting oras pa gaganda pa ang takbo ng team,” said Dulay, noting poor reception in the second set cost them.

“Nawalan kami ng receive tapos ’yung kalaban kinargahan ang service nila, ’di rin kami maka-atake tapos ’yung service namin ang hina buti sa third set kinargahan na namin ang service namin,” he said.

Foton improved to 1-1 for a share of the second spot with F2 Logistics, behind unbeaten RC Cola Army (2-0).

Jamela Suyat scored 16 points, Coleen Bravo had 13 markers and Lourdes Clemente added 11 for New San Jose Builders, winless in two outings.
