LIPA CITY – F2 Logistics moved on the cusp of becoming the first-ever PNVF Champions League women’s champions following a 25-18, 25-18, 25-19 romp of the Tuguegarao Perlas Spikers yesterday at the Aquamarine Recreational Center here.

The Cargo Movers weathered a stirring Perlas Spikers fightback in the second set and pulled away in the third to improve to 4-0.

Kianna Dy took the scoring mantle with 12 points and continued to displayed improved floor defense, while setter Iris Tolenada had a solid all-around game of 10 points, including three aces and three blocks, and tossed in 20 excellent sets for F2 Logistics.

Aby Maraño had four blocks for a 10-point outing while Majoy Baron also scored twin digits for the Cargo Movers with 10.

Only Chery Tiggo stands F2 Logistics’ way of winning it all. The Cargo Movers seek to complete an undefeated 5-0 campaign against the reigning PVL Open Conference champions in the final day of competitions at 4 p.m. tomorrow.

The Perlas Spikers dropped to fourth place with a 2-2 slate, as they now need to beat PetroGazz convincingly at 1:30 p m. tomorrow to achieve a podium finish.

With the Perlas Spikers loss, the Crossovers and the Angels are now tied in second and third place with 2-1 card.

Nicole Tiamzon had nine kills, while Norielle Ipac had two blocks to finish with nine points for the Perlas Spikers.

In a duel of winless teams, California Precision Sports turned back Baguio, 25-14, 23-25, 25-11, 25-12.

The Lady Highlanders finally won a set in the second, but the Antipolo-based side regrouped with a dominant performance in the third and fourth to enter the win column.

Caisey Dongallo scored all but one of her 25 points from attacks and collected seven digs, Jelai Gajero added 16 points and eight digs, while skipper Kizzie Madriaga tossed in 19 excellent sets for CPS.

Having handled by multi-titled high school coach Jerry Yee in a bubble training for a month, CPS was finally rewarded after putting up a gallant stand in the first three matches.

“He prepared for us very well,” said Gajero.

Those losses against professional clubs toughened CPS, as Yee was the glue that kept the young crew together.

“Sobrang calm niya talaga pag nagko-coach,” said Madriaga on Yee.

Ann Atuban and Joan Lyn Maddatu each scored seven points, while Shyla Marie Ylarde and Rhaetia Mae Pilo contributed six points apiece for Baguio.

The Lady Highlanders fell to 0-4.
