    RACHEL Anne Daquis urged her teammates to put the semifinal loss behind them and focus on Cignal’s battle for third place in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference.

    The HD Spikers team captain admits she was frustrated after an 18-point, 11-dig performance as Petron came away with a 21-25, 20-15, 16-25 win at the Muntinlupa Sports Arena, but reminded her teammates they can still finish the tournament on a bright note.

    “Siguro sa part ng Cignal move on and focus na lang kami sa next goal namin,” said Daquis.

    “Siyempre nandoon 'yung disappointment pero bakit ka magde-dwell sa past? Gawin mo na lang siyang lesson. Kailangan na lang namin tumingin sa future na kalaban. Hindi mo naman alam kasi bilog ang bola. Hindi naman lahat pabor sa amin.”

    Coach Edgar Barroga was also disappointed as the rest of the HD Spikers couldn’t provide the support.

    “Rachel is still a good leader although medyo nadadala na rin siya kasi bagsak yung mga kasama niya pero she did good pa rin, consistent pa rin siya at nalead pa rin niya yung team,” Barroga said.

    Daquis hopes her teammates can bounce back quickly.

    “Sabi ko nga sa mga kasamahan ko, 'Lalabas tayo ng court na hindi ka magsisisi kasi binigay mo 'yung best mo'. So, talagang kinulang kami so kailangan pang mag-improve,” she said.

    “Sabi nga ng coach namin na 'yun 'yung paghandaan namin (bronze),” Daquis said. “Paghandaan muna namin 'yun tapos trabaho ulit para makaabot sa finals sa susunod na season.”
