(The Philippine Star) - August 25, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Stung by Chef’s Classic in the second set, Choco Mucho imposed its will in the next two frames and came away with a 25-21, 22-25, 25-14, 25-18 victory to move to solo fourth in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan last night.

Kat Tolentino and Maddie Madayag dominated the net while Grace Masangkay provided the spark with her 37 excellent sets, the bulk of which she delivered in the last two sets that kept the Red Spikers’ defense guessing and grasping.

Tolentino topscored with 18 hits, including 15 attack points and two kill blocks, while Arianne Angustia had 14 markers and Madayag and Bang Pineda with 12 and 10 points to underscore the team’s solid offense.

Chef’s Classic drew a combined 27 points from Nieza Viray and Justine Tiu while Trisha Paras and Bien Juanillo added seven and six points, respectively.

The Flying Titans, coming off a five-set loss to the PacificTown-Army Lady Troopers last Wednesday, shrugged off an erratic start (13-18) with a strong finish (12-3) in the opening set but wavered in the face of the Red Spikers’ charge late in the second.
