The RC Cola-Philippine Air Force Raiders cruised past the Foton Tornadoes, 25-13, 25-20, 25-14, to notch their first win of the tournament. They found themselves on the driver’s seat for most of the match, even erecting a 13-1 scoreline to start the second set.
“Inimprove namin ang receive at transition offense,” said Raiders coach Rhovyl Verayo. “Kung mapapansin niyo noon first game, medyo nawawala iyon. Kahit free ball na, hindi pa rin kami nakakapuntos.”
Verayo also bared that he did positional adjustments so that the front row will be consistent no matter the rotation.
It was the locals who stepped up for the Raiders as Iari Yongco showed why she is first round draft material by leading her team with 12 points. Maika Ortiz had 11.
Irina Tarasova was the topscorer for the Tornadoes with nine markers.
