MANILA, Philippines – Imports Lindsay Stalzer did not hide her disappointment – not even her teammates – after F2 Logistics suffered a second consecutive loss in the 2022 Premier League Volleyball League Enhancement Conference on Thursday at the Philsports Arena.
The US import company’s 26-point PVL debut was ruined as Cargo Movers lost 21-25, 25-22, 20-25, 24-26 Choco Mucho Flying Titans is still undefeated after two matches.
“I let the team know how sad and heartbroken I am about that. Because it is so serious, we cannot just take these losses lightly. We definitely had every chance to win that game and we let it slip out of our hands,” said Stallzer, who had 25 kills.
F2 Logistics is at the peak of tying the fifth set after reaching the fourth set point with a 24-22 advantage. But Cargo Movers took the lead after Choco Mucho substitute Isa Molde started to make it 4-0, including a vital Iris Tolenada touchdown to complete the win.
“I told everyone how that couldn’t have happened and we all need to take responsibility for that loss and we need to work on improving in the coming weeks because it’s urgent. . We need to get those wins,” said Stalzer, who has been playing as an import player in the Philippines since 2014.
The 38-year-old says the Cargo Movers need more time to put their acts together because she just got out tournament health and safety protocols one day before this match. They are also absent the liberos Dawn Macandili and CJ Saga-Woo, while Tin Tiamzon and Shola Alvarez are also isolated.
“It’s disturbing that we’ve lost two games already but you know, tonight was really the first night we had almost the whole team together. My first night with the team, so give us a bit of a good time,” said Staller.
Despite going through a second straight loss, Stalzer said there’s no reason to panic as they have more games to go and will resume their search for their first win over United Auctioneers-Army on Tuesday.
“We had some good points. We’ve really had some good plays and we’re showing some impressive talent so I’m not too worried but I know we just need to step it up. “
