“We really have to prepare against Petron,” said de Jesus, who also steered the Cargo Movers to the Grand Prix crown last year only to lose it to Katherine Bell, Lindsay Stalzer and the rampaging Petron squad early this year.
“It’s important for us to do our adjustments because we know how strong our opponent is.”
F2 Logistics head coach Ramil de Jesus knows that their battle with their rival will never be easy so a morale-boosting win is what they need right now.
“We had a good rest prior to this game,” said de Jesus after notching their third straight victory in the early stretch of this tourney that also has ESPN5, Aksyon TV and Hyper HD as broadcast partners.
“That rest and recovery had very good effect to them because they had good connection on the court.”
“We really wanted to get this win,” said coach Shaq Delos Santos, the architect of the Blaze Spikers’ conquest of the previous All-Filipino.
“We know that our setback to Generika-Ayala in the Invitationals is really tough. So we prepared hard against them and hoped for a good result.”
