Orendain topscored with 23 points while Araneta scattered 15 kills, three blocks and a pair of service aces for 20 hits.
“We’re lucky that the breaks of the fifth set belonged to us,” Generika-Ayala Head Coach Sherwin Meneses said. “I just told them that we have nothing to lose against Petron because it is a strong team. I believe in my team because we have a balanced line-up and anyone can contribute.”
Fiola Ceballos was also instrumental with 13 points, including 22 digs and 16 excellent receptions. Libero Kat Arado protected the floor with 42 digs and 16 receptions while setter April Hingpit made 43 excellent sets.
“In sports, we see the potential of how our athletes can become advocates of health and wellness and drivers of positive change in the communities that we serve,” said Ayala Corp. managing director and public affairs group head Rene Almendras during the team launch graced by PSL chairman Philip Ella Juico and PSL president Ramon “Tats” Suzara yesterday at the Ayala Tower One.
