We’re so thankful because we won our second game in the final round,” said Petron coach Shaq Delos Santos. “We believe that anything can still happen. We’re facing a strong team tomorrow. We’ll do everything to win over them.”
Meanwhile, Cocolife blew hot and cold before finding its rhythm in the fifth set to overcome Sta. Lucia, 25-23, 23-25, 25-17, 12-25, 15-11, in the classification battle for 4th to 6th places.
“This is the turning point in our campaign. I told the team that if we win over Petron, our morale will get a boost,” said Cignal coach George Pascua, whose wards lost to the Blaze Spikers in their first meeting.
“That setback should serve as a learning experience to us. It means that we still have more to improve as team. I’m glad that we pulled it through.”
