PVL 2021: Cignal HD Spikers Trounce Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors To Get Win No. 1

by | Posted on: July 21st, 2021 | No Comments | Sports

Cignal HD Spikers defeated Sta. Lucia Lady Realtors in four sets, 25-22, 25-18, 13-25, 25-20, on Wednesday at the PCV Socio-Civic and Cultural Center, to earn its first win in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference.

A set away from losing another match, the Lady Realtors rallied from a two-set deficit to win the third set, 25-13.

Unfortunately for Sta. Lucia, after an error-filled third set, Cignal rallied back to win the fourth set to earn their first win of the tournament.

Cignal had a 24-19 lead in the fourth set, thanks to Julia Ipac. Fiola Ceballos, then, ended the match at 25-20. The latter came off the bench to provide a spark for the HD Spikers.

The match’s best player Roselyn Doria scored 14 points on five attacks, five blocks, and four aces. Cignal HD moved to 1-1 in the league thanks to Ayel Estranero’s excellent set distributions.

Cignal caught Sta. Lucia off guard in the first set, leading by as much as six points before eventually grabbing a 1-0 lead with a 25-22 set win.

The HD Spikers were back in control in the second set, grabbing a six-point lead thanks to a couple of aces from Roselyn Doria, and winning 23-17. Doria then blocked MJ Phillips to put Cignal on match point, and Rachel Daquis finished the set with a kill to make it 25-18.

The HD Spikers improved to 1-1, while Sta. Lucia dropped to 1-2.

Cignal will play a retooled Petro Gazz Angels on Friday at 6:00 PM, while Sta. Lucia will face a formidable Choco Mucho Flying Titans at 3:00 PM on the same day.
