The Petron Blaze Spikers slayed two-time runner up Cignal HD as they won in four sets, 25-17, 23-25, 25-20, 25-19, in the final women’s division classification round match of the 2014 Philippine SuperLiga All Filipino Conference on July 9 at the Cuneta Astrodome.
Dindin Santiago made up for her dismal performance in her team’s two defeats as she finished with 19 attack points, four block points, and a service ace for a total of 24 points. Sandra delos Santos chipped in with 11 markers.
The Blaze Spikers ended the eliminations on a positive note after dropping their last two matches. They will face sixth seed PLDT Home TVolution in the quarterfinals.
It was the end of the line for the HD Spikers, which were fighting for their lives, when Petron took the third set as mathematically, they could not do anything to change their fortune at that point. To make matters worse, Arriane Argarin had to be stretchered off and rushed to the hospital as she collided with Norie Jane Diaz in a play for the ball which hurt her back.
Honey Royse Tubino spearheaded Cignal HD with 22 points, 19 of which were attack points. Diaz also had 11 points.
The satellite tv service providers finished the PSL AFC with only one win. (JP Abcede)
