Glaudine Troncoso, a rookie from Ilo-ilo, scored all her eight points in the third frame as Sta Lucia held off Marinerang Pilipina.
“Gusto ko i-acknowledge yung mga bata so they went through a lot of losses. We wanted to solve it, nagisip kami ng mga paraan para mastop namin yung losing streak,” said Sta. Lucia head coach Babes Castillo. “In fact, ang target namin is to win in straight sets. Nabilib ako sa mga bata kasi yung kanilang composure nadedevelop na nila.”
