Cignal HD Takes Out Marinerang Pilipina

“We needed this win. We needed a morale-boosting win to get us back on track,” said Cignal coach Edgar Barroga.

“We went through a difficult phase when we lost four straight matches. I must admit that it wasn’t easy. It’s hard to get to the gym to train. But now, I’m happy that we’re finally back.”

Cignal will open its second-round campaign against mighty Petron on Thursday next week, but Barroga declared readiness to go all out.

The Cargo Movers needed to survive the Lady Skippers’ gallant stand in the third set tied at 17-all before scoring six unanswered points for a 23-17 spread. Marinerang Pilipina saved two more points, but Baron put up the finishing touches.

“My starters are jelling well and doing great that’s why we easily won the first two sets and our opponents were late in showing aggressiveness,” said De Jesus. “But in the third set, some of my substitute players weren’t ready that cost us a close encounter.”
