MANILA, Philippines — Prisilla Rivera gave her all to end Akari’s first Premier Volleyball League season on a high note.

The Dominican spiker poured in 32 points as the also-ran Akari stunned the Kalei Mau-less F2 Logistics, 25-21, 22-25, 26-24, 25-22, in the 2022 PVL Reinforced Conference on Tuesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Rivera drilled 29 kills and three blocks, including the big hits in the fourth set that capped their victory, preventing the Cargo Movers from moving closer to a semis berth. 

The three-time Olympian scored four of her five spike attempts to give Akari a 23-20 lead in the fourth. But Lindsay Stalzer’s drop ball and an attack error from Rivera trimmed the advantage down to one, 23-22.

Rivera stopped the bleeding from the back row to reach match point, 24-22, followed by Stalzer’s attack as the ball went out.

“She’s not happy because we didn’t get the (wins) in the beginning, to be on the top four. But of course, she’s happy because she had a chance to come here and play,” said Rivera in Spanish as translated by Akari coach Jorge Souza de Brito. “She’s almost 38 so she’s so proud to still play at this level.”

Janine Marciano and Erika Raagas provided ample help for Rivera as they delivered eight points each with the latter nailing four blocks, while Jho Maraguinot and Ezra Madrigal added six markers.

Setter Jaja Maraguinot made 19 excellent sets on top of four points from two aces, while libero Rachel Jorvina protected the floor with 21 digs and 12 excellent receptions as Akari finished the tournament with a 3-5 record.

“Of course, it’s always a good win and I’m happy about that. It’s always a challenge being the youngest one but we’re heading into this tournament with a lot of chances,” said De Brito after ending his first PVL season. “Finally, maybe we got the spirits up of this team so for the future, we’re gonna be again starting from the beginning so I think we will be much better.”

F2 Logistics dropped to 3-3 tied with Choco Mucho and Cignal in fourth place with two more semis spots remaining. Creamline (6-1) and Chery Tiggo (5-2) gained the first two tickets, while No.3 seed Petro Gazz (4-2) is just a win away from getting the third berth.

Stalzer and Ivy Lacsina led the Cargo Movers with 17 points each as Mau was in street clothes due to a calf issue. Kianna Dy had 11 points, while Shola Alvarez filled in for Mau with six points and 11 digs.

Dawn Macandili had 24 digs and 16 receptions in a losing effort. F2 Logistics needs to win its last two games against Cignal on Saturday before wrapping up its elimination round against Petro Gazz on Tuesday next week.

European giant could make offer for Newcastle ace in the coming hours

#European #giant #offer #Newcastle #ace #coming #hours

Newcastle United could reportedly be braced for a bid for one of their big-name players.

According to reports in France, Magpies ace Allan Saint-Maximin has emerged as a transfer target for AC Milan, with the Serie A giants holding initial talks with the player’s entourage.

And now a bid could be imminent, according to breaking reports emerging this afternoon, with Milan clearly keen to firm up their interest in Saint-Maximin amid his difficult situation under Eddie Howe at St James’ Park.

The Frenchman has fallen out of favour in recent times, despite showing glimpses of some real talent during his time in the Premier League.

It could now be wise for Newcastle to let the player go as they enter into advanced talks over a potential replacement.

MANILA, Philippines–Looking to make its mark on both local and international stages,  Victoria Sports Cycling Team plans on being an active competitor in major cycling tournaments here and abroad.

Team representative Pako Ochoa said the country’s newest pro cycling team “aims to be the first Philippine team to regularly and actively represent the country in major international cycling tournaments in Asia and countries around the world.”

VSCT–which is bolstered by veteran Portuguese professional cyclists–was officially launched over the weekend with a press conference at Victoria Sports Tower followed by a community ride in Quezon Memorial Circle the day after.

“It is an exciting time for Philippine sports. Our country won its first gold medal in the Olympics two years ago, and this year the country will be represented in both the Fifa Women’s World Cup and the Fiba Basketball World Cup,” said Ochoa.

“We are slowly showing the world that Filipino athletes can be competitive in international sporting competitions, and we will set out to prove that Filipinos have what it takes to excel in cycling as well.”

VSCT is composed of riders Jhay Oconer, Kelvin Mendoza, Márcio Barbosa, Luis Krog, Pedro Paulinho, Ochoa, Ean Cajucom, José Mendes, Daniel Cariño, Jerry Aquino, and André Cardoso.

Mendez is a former World Tour Rider for Bora-Hansgrohe and a two-time national road champion of Portugal while Cardoso is a former World Tour rider for Trek Segafredo.

But competing in  Union Cycliste Internationale races is not the team’s only goal as it also aims to help with “the meteoric rise of the popularity of biking in the Philippines.”

“We are extremely grateful to all the companies that share our vision,” said Ochoa, “[We] also believe that we can go beyond making cycling more popular–that we can raise the level of cycling and make it a part of our culture, as it is in other parts of the world where the needs and rights of bikers are embraced and respected.” -Celest Flores-Colina

Exclusive: Bal David resigns as UST head coach after just one season – TalkOfNews.com

MANILA, Philippines — Bal David has stepped down as head coach of University of Santo Tomas men’s basketball team, according to multiple reports.

The Varsitarian, the school’s official student publication, reported on Wednesday that David has tendered his resignation after just one season with the Growling Tigers.

UST’s organ also wrote that assistant coach Rodney Santos will stay as part of the coaching staff.

In David’s first year, UST won its opening game against Adamson but lost 13 straight games, reeling to the bottom of the standings of the UAAP Season 85 men’s basketball tournament. 

The former PBA star, dubbed “The Flash”, took the coaching reins last July, two months before Season 85.

David, who was part of UST’s back-to-back title runs in 1993 and 94 UAAP seasons under the late Tigers coach Aric del Rosario, only lasted with the Tigers for six months.

After their final game last year, the former Ginebra cager took the blame for their last-place finish and told his players that no one will quit.

“We had a lot of struggles but I kept telling the kids not to quit. Struggles after struggles, so we have to be in the same direction. No one will quit, no one will give up,” David said in Filipino during the post-game.

He even added that UST won’t have a major revamp and he still prefers the “old school” way of recruiting.

The Tigers will have a different coach for the third straight season, following David’s sudden resignation.

UST had two different coaches in one year with Jinino Manansala taking charge in Season 84 after the infamous “Sorsogon bubble” fiasco that resulted in the exodus of key players and Aldin Ayo’s indefinite ban from coaching in the league.
