A Cignal HD squad still reeling from a series of misfortunates will try to get back on the winning track when it battles Sta. Lucia Realty in the Chooks-to-Go Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
Game time is at 7 p.m., following the battle between struggling clubs Iriga city and Victoria Sports-UST at 4:15 p.m.The HD Spikers' prospects in the Grand Prix appear gloomy, as they have lost three of their past four games, including a four-set defeat to league-leading F2 Logistics in their game last Tuesday.
In that match, the HD Spikers came out firing in the first set, before succumbing to the tough-defending Cargo Movers in the second and third sets en route to another painful setback.F2 Logistics was so dominant defensively that nobody from Cignal emerged with http://www.authenticflyersite.com/michal-neuvirth-jersey_c-464.html double-digit in scoring. The Cargo Movers were more superior at the attack zone, 38-27, as well as in the blocking (12-5) and service (6-3) departments.
To make matters worse, veteran spiker Jovelyn Gonzaga suffered a knee injury in the second set and had to be rushed to the Cardinal Albert Pujols Jersey Santos Medical Center for immediate treatment.Doctors have ruled out a fracture on Womens Matt Wieters Jersey her right knee, but she is Authentic Nikola Mirotic Jersey still doubtful to play against the Lady Realtors.
"This is a major challenge for us," admitted Cignal coach George Pascua, who plans to start Mylene Paat in place of Gonzaga."(But) this is the perfect time for us to step Womens Trevor Story Jersey up together and play as a team," he added. "We know Jovelyn really wants to win. She's a fighter. We have to help her emotionally by winning this match for her."
Their foes, the Lady Realtors, have had their fair share of injuries.Canadian import Marisa Field suffered a knee injury in the third set of their match against Victoria Sports-UST, and has to rest for two weeks.
Sta. Lucia head coach Jerry Yee said Field's absence is a major blow, especially now that they are trying to come up with a strong finish in the elimination round to avoid heavyweights Petron, F2 Logistics and Foton in the sudden-death quarterfinals.
"We will definitely miss Marisa's presence. But we have to move on and focus on our match against http://www.patriotsnflofficialsauthentic.com/Shea-Mcclellin-Jersey.html Cignal. http://www.arizonacoyotesofficialonline.com/Adidas-Radim-Vrbata-Jersey Our locals have to step up if we want to get this victory," said Yee.
