    While acknowledging disappointment with Petron loss, De los Santos says he's actually relieved

    Apr 6, 2018

    PETRON coach Shaq delos Santos considers their stunning defeat to Sta. Lucia in the Philippine Super Liga Grand Prix as a blessing in disguise in.

    The Lady Realtors win in straight sets, dealing the Blaze Spikers their first loss in eight matches.

    “Nandyan kasi lagi ang pressure kapag gusto mong i-sweep ang conference. Pressured lagi ang bawat game na kailangan manalo,” said De los Santos, who was an assistant coach to George Pascua when the Blaze Spikers scored a 13-match sweep of the 2015 All-Filipino Conference.

    “Pero ngayon na natalo kami, in a way, maganda na rin kasi nawala na ang pressure sa amin and ngayon makakafocus na kami sa kung ano ang dapat naming ayusin,” said delos Santos.


      “Kapag kasi gusto mong mag-sweep napakahirap kung ‘yun ang nasa mindset mo eh unlike kung ang mindset mo one game at a time lang,” he added.

      Petron is now tied for the lead with defending champion F2 Logistics at 8-1. 

      The Blaze Spikers can still clinch a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals if they beat the Cocolife (5-3) and Smart (0-8) wins its next two matches in the classification round.
