PETRON made short work of Victoria Sports-University of Santo Tomas, 25-16, 25-14, 25-14, to get back on track in the Philippine Super Liga Grand Prix on Thursday at The Arena in San Juan.

Coming off a four-set loss to F2 Logistics, the Blaze Spikers jumped the gun early on the Tigresses and never let up to book their fourth win in five games.

Aiza Maizo-Pontillas delivered 10 points while Remy Palma and import Lindsay Stalzer had eight markers apiece for the Blaze Spikers, who had the luxury of shuffling their personnel to give the college girls a very good fight.

“We wanted to regain our confidence,” said Petron coach Shaq Delos Santos, whose wards battered the Tigresses at the attack zone, 45-26. “This is a great bounce back win for us.”

Dimdim Pacres finished with 10 points and was the lone bright spot for Victoria Sports-UST, which fell to 0-2.
