GENERIKA won the battle for fifth place against Cignal, 18-25, 25-22, 25-22, 23-25, 15-7, on Sunday in the Philippine Super Liga All Filipino Conference at The Arena in San Juan.

Gen Casugod had 20 points, Chloe Cortez scored 16, Ria Meneses added 14 markers and Wensh Tiu chipped in with 12 for the Life Savers.

Generika coach Francis Vicente, who missed several matches to attend a tournament in Thailand, said he is pleased despite finishing out of the semis places.

"For a two-month old team, mataas 'yun, maganda 'yung finish namin," said Vicente.

"Kailangan lang talaga ang players should adapt to the presure that is given by each and everyone to perform at the highest level, 'yun ang kailangan i-overcome."

"What I can see kahit, nasa abroad ako napapanood ko pa rin sila, nag je-jel sila at the same time 'yung leadership ng captain ball (Rubie de Leon) maganda plus support ng management na laging nasa tabi nila, lahat ng kailangan binibigay," he added.

Cherry May Vivas scored 19 points and Janine Navarro added 12 as Cignal ended the tournament in fifth place.

NCAA best blocker Jeanette Panaga had 11 blocks and finished with 14 points.
