MANILA, Philippines – F2 Logistics will try to extend its winning streak when the Chooks-to-Go Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix troops to the Malolos Sports and Convention Center on Saturday.
The Cargo Movers will clash with Cocolife at 6 p.m., following the encounter between Iriga City and Cignal in the 4 p.m. curtain-raiser.
Powerhouse Foton sits at the top spot with a 4-0 win-loss card, but the Cargo Movers can inch closer if they grab their third straight win against Cocolife.
F2 Logistics is coming off a confidence-boosting win over erstwhile unbeaten Petron last Saturday in Bacolod City, and a straight-sets victory over Sta. Lucia Realty last Tuesday.
"We're off to a good start," acknowledged F2 Logistics coach Ramil de Jesus. "But we have to be careful, because all teams are also preparing."
He warns that beating a veteran Cocolife squad will be a tough task.
Led by evergreen Tina Salak, with veterans Mary Jean Balse, Joanne Bunag, Michele Gumabao, Denden Lazaro and imports Taylor Milton and Tai Manu-Olevao, the Asset Managers posted back-to-back victories after suffering a pair of early setbacks.
Their previous win – a four-set conquest of Victoria Sports-UST – definitely gave Cocolife a lot of confidence entering their blockbuster battle with F2 Logistics.
"I watched their game against UST, and they still won convincingly even if Tina did not play," De Jesus noted.
"Cocolife is on a different level whenever Tina is around. That's something we have to address," he added. "We have to prepare hard, because this is a veteran team."
De Jesus will bank on the firepower of imports Kennedy Bryan of United States, and Maria Jose Perez of Venezuela as well as local stars Kianna Dy, Aby Marano, Kim Fajardo, and libero Dawn Macandili.
