Aiza Maizo and Cherry Mae Vivas of the Philippine Air Force weren't able to contain the dominant imports of San Sebastian (Lauren Ford and Jeng Bualee) as they succumbed to a loss via 3 straight sets against the Lady Stags in the quarterfinals of the Shakey's V-League Season 8 2nd Conference.
The set scores were 25-19, 25-15, and 25-15. Ford and Bualee demolished the floor defense of the Air Women. They were just too tall and too powerful for the Air Women. The two imports of the Lady Stags combined for a total of 30 points for the their team. Coach Roger Gorayeb commented about this big win of his girls. He said that:
“They got intimidated by our imports.”
This is the first win of the Lady Stags in the quarterfinals. They will join the Philippine Army in the top spot of the single round quarterfinals' team standings.
This win is very important for the Lady Stags because the win-loss records from the elimination round will not be carried over in the quarterfinals. And also, the quarterfinals is very short. Thus, every team has to immediately start with a win.
