COACH Ramil de Jesus lashed out at the F2 players for the lackluster performance against Petron in the opener of the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference finals.
The multi-titled coach is hoping the Cargo Movers could come up with a better showing in the second match of the best-of-three series on Tuesday after being defeated in three sets on Saturday.
“Sabi ko sa kanila dapat sa Game Two kailangan laro na macha-challenge 'yung kalaban. Hindi pwede ‘yung ganoon na naglalaro na wala man lang kachallenge-challenge,” rued De Jesus after a long talk with his wards in the locker room.
“Hopefully maglaro ng maayos at hindi ganon yung maging performance.”
The three-time PSL champion coach also noted the 27 errors, mostly in the second set where they were beaten by 14. None from F2 also scored in double figures with Ara Galang having the highest output of nine points, followed by four markers each from Major Baron, Cha Cruz-Behag and setter Kim Fajardo.
“Sa umpisa naman makikikita mo naman yung galaw nandoon. May mga times lang talaga na ‘yung mga unforced errors sa side namin nanggagaling,” he said. “Ang nangyayari, nagse-serve lang 'yung Petron, pagkatapos andoon na yung misreceive, andoon na yung overball or yung mis-set. Yung mga ganoong unforced errors ang dami nung second set. Nasabay pa na siguro off yung iba na healthy.”
Kianna Dy returned to action after missing several games due to knee injury and only had three markers.
“Malaking factor 'yun sa psychological. Iniisip nila na hindi nila mabibigay 'yung best ko kasi hindi ako 'yung one hundred percent healthy na ako,” De Jesus said.
“‘Yun ang inaalis ko sa kanila na hindi dapat gumalaw ng ganon. Mahirap alisin kasi nga sila 'yung nakakaramdam kaya kung ano man ‘yung ginalaw ngayon siguro effect ‘yun nung kung ano ‘yung nararamdaman.”
