F2 Logistics captured its breakthrough 2017 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix title but not after surviving a tough battle against Petron, 25-20, 25-19, 20-25, 25-18, in the decider of their best-of-three Finals series at MOA Arena on Saturday. 

The Cargo Movers pounced on the cold Blaze Spikers early before staving off Petron’s comeback attempt with a strong fourth set blitz to bag their first import-laden crown since joining the league last year.

The Ramil de Jesus-mentored squad returned the favor against the same team that kicked then off the throne in the All-Filipino Conference four months ago and completed an amazing comeback from a 0-1 series deficit.

F2 Logistics won its second league title after ruling the the 2016 All-Filipino Conference and became the first team to climb out of an early series deficit and take the throne since the implementation of the best-of-three championship back in 2015. 

The Cargo Movers forced a decider after a morale-boosting 25-20, 24-26, 14-25, 25-19, 15-4, victory in Game 2 last Thursday. Petron drew first blood, 25-14, 25-21, 25-16, Tuesday but was denied of adding another Grand Prix crown after winning it all back in 2015.
