Games Today (Filoil Flying V Centre)
2 p.m. – Generika-Ayala vs Marinerang Pilipina
4:15 p.m. – Sta. Lucia vs Foton
7 p.m. – F2 Logistics vs PLDT

Foton parades its retooled roster while F2 Logistics shoots for its second win when they battle separate foes in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference today at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The new-look Tornadoes clash with Sta. Lucia at 4:15 p.m. while the Cargo Movers take on PLDT Home Fibr in the 7 p.m. nightcap of the women’s club tourney bankrolled by SOGO, Eurotel, PCSO, Cocolife, UCPB Gen, Mueller, Senoh, Asics, Bizooku, Mikasa, Team Rebel Sport and One Sport.

Meanwhile, Generika-Ayala and Marinerang Pilipina seek to bounce back from opening-day setbacks when they collide at 2 p.m.

Filipino-American Kalei Mau didn’t see action in the opening day for the Cargo Movers as head coach Ramil de Jesus gave her a little more time to adjust and study his system.

Still, the Cargo Movers remained unstoppable in dominating the Lifesavers in straight sets, 25-12, 25-21, 25-17, last Saturday.

Mau remains a game-time decision, but De Jesus has a deep roster with Kianna Dy returning form injury to join the star-studded core of Aby Marano, Desiree Cheng, Majoy Baron, Ara Galang and Dawn Macandili.

It, however, won’t be a walk in the park for F2 Logistics as PLDT is tipped to bring its experience from a pocket tournament in Perth, where Gretchel Soltones, Aiko Urdas, Jasmine Nabor and Jerili Malabanan battled some of the best club teams in the city.

The Tornadoes, meanwhile, are not yet set to field sisters EJ and Eya Laure as both are still recuperating from injuries. Eya is still nursing a left ankle injury while her older sister, EJ, is not yet in perfect shape after sustaining a shoulder injury two years ago.
