Cignal, Cocolife fan campaigns
(Ynares Sports Arena)
4 p.m. Opening ceremonies
5 p.m. Foton vs Generika-Ayala
7 p.m. Cignal vs Cocolife
Cignal and Cocolife try to rebound from early setbacks when they clash today in the Philippine Super Liga All-Filipino Conference at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.
The HD Spikers and the Asset Managers with both teams eyeing redemption in their 7 p.m. game.
Cignal bowed to F2 Logistics while Cocolife lost to Petron, uncharacteristic of their strengths in this tournament bankrolled by Isuzu, Sogo, Senoh, Asics, Mikasa, Mueller, UCPB Gen and Bizooku.
This despite opposite spiker Mylene Paat leading the HD Spikers with 12 points in also proving her worth as a revelation for the national team during her stint in the Asian Games.
The Asset Managers, meanwhile, can lean on Filino-American recruit Kalei Mau, who left a good impression after her PSL debut. She hammered 13 points and 11 digs in their lost match.
They will be the focus of today’s clash between their teams.
Meanwhile, Foton and Generika-Ayala will raise the curtain at 4 p.m. in this tourney that also has ESPN5, Hyper HD and Aksyon TV as broadcast partners.
Playing without the towering Santiago sisters Dindin and Jaja, who are both currently playing in Japan, the Blue Tornadoes are aware of the big voids they have to fill.
Dindin is with the Toray Arrows, while Jaja is with the Ageo Medics in the Japan V League.
“It’s a big challenge for us not having the Santiago sisters around for this conference. But we are confident our coaches will help us to adjust with the new system,” Foton setter Gyzelle Sy said.
Hungry for a title, Generika-Ayala will lean on veterans Patty Orendain, April Hingit and Ria Meneses to deliver the goods for the squad.
In the PSL Collegiate Grand Slam — a side PSL event, University of the Philippines will face University of the East at 12 noon, while Collegio San Agustin will clash with University of Santo Tomas at 2 p.m.
