Leading 20-14 in the third set, the Cargo Movers found their scoring groove and unloaded a 5-0 run capped by a double block from Iris Tonelada and Aby Marano off a Jerrili Malabanan attack en route to their third straight win.

The Angels showed grit in the tight second frame and managed to pull off a 23-all deadlock but F2 did not show mercy as Kalei Mau hammered a solid kill and Kim Dy blocked Gretchel Soltones’ off-speed hit for the set win.

The Cargo Movers were a dominant force in the first set and led by as many as seven, 23-16, before scoring back-to-back points to take command of the match.

Mau fired 18 kills of her 21 points to go with two blocks, Marano and Dy scored nine points apiece, while Ara Galang and Majoy Baron both added six points for F2 Logistics.

“I think we did pretty good,” said Mau. “For me individually I can’t say I did a good job. It was my teammates. Iris and I have been working pretty hard on our connection during our training. I’m really proud of her. Without her I couldn’t make those points.”

Ria Meneses, meanwhile, paced the Angels with 11 points and two blocks.

F2 rolled on to a 3-0 record while Petro Gazz fell to a 2-1 slate.
