Cignal HD Attempts To Dethrone Petron Today, 7pm @FilOilSanJuan (P200 at gate)

“We came here with nothing to lose. The pressure is now on Petron,” said Barroga following their thrilling encounter that lasted until the wee hours of Tuesday.

“We’re going to do our best in this fight of our lives.”

But Petron won’t simply buckle down to pressure.

Head coach Shaq Delos Santos said losing to Cignal in a high-stake battle didn’t come as a surprise ass it is known to be a quality team with a merry mix of veterans like Gonzaga and Daquis, rising stars like Mylene Paat and Janine Navarro with a savvy Filipino-American playmaker like Alohi Robins-Hardy.

F2 Logistics Marches to Fourth Straight Finals Appearance

“Well, Foton was a big challenge. But entering the Finals will be our biggest test. This is an unfinished business for us,” said F2 Logistics head coach Ramil De Jesus, who last won the All-Filipino title in their debut in 2016.

Since joining three years ago, F2 Logistics has been in the All-Filipino finals and reached the PSL championship round for seven consecutive times out of its eight overall appearances.

Petron coach Shaq Delos Santos doesn’t want to be complacent.

“We can’t afford to be complacent because we’re already in the knockout stage. We have to prepare well against Marinerang Pilipina,” said Delos Santos, who guided Petron to back-to-back All-Filipino crowns.

“Being on top is a huge opportunity. So we have to take care of it by keeping our focus and not letting any distraction get into the way.”
