Cignal bagged its second win in seven matches to end the preliminary round on a high note but HD Spikers coach Sammy Acaylar was not pleased with their performance.
“Kahit nanalo kami hindi ako satisfied kasi as I said before, ‘yung ipinapakita nila sa ensayo hindi ganoon kaganda sa actual game,” said the veteran mentor.
“Maybe there’s something wrong psychologically with my players kasi napapansin ko sa kanila na kapag nauunahan biglang nada-down. Hindi nila alam kung paano i-recover ang sarili nila,” he added.
RC Cola-Army coach Kungfu Reyes admitted that the younger, more aggressive Cargo Movers have what it takes to go all the way to win the crown.
He is planning to use their experience to their advantage, something which worked when they dominated the junior national team of Thailand last April to win the Invitational Conference crown last April.
“They are obviously better than us skills-wise,” said Reyes, noting that the experience of Jovelyn Gonzaga, Rachel Anne Daquis, Honey Royse Tubino and playmaker Tina Salak is their most valuable asset against a young team like the Cargo Movers.
“We will turn their strength into their own weakness. We will use our experience to our advantage and force them out of their comfort zone. We already did it before (against Est Cola of Thailand), I’m sure we can do it again against F2 (Logistics).”
