NCR defends the championship of girls volleyball
STO. DOMINGO, Ilocos Sur-The National Capital Region confirmed that they will not repeat last year after winning the crown of secondary girls volleyball in Calabarzon, 12-25, 25-12, 25-18, 17-25, 15- 12 at the National Games Friday.
Angel Canino scored a crucial blow to the final set to break the score, 13-12, followed by Lucille Alonte’s off-speed hit and put NCR at the match point.
Canino breached the hopes of Calabarzon to defend their title once again raided the attack.
The Big City will be disappointed to continue their winning streak in the Games in 2017 in Antique after the South Korean slam in the 5 sets of battles.
“If you do not accept the defeat, you will not be able to start again.” After our defeat, we are back at the beginning. We are also a good choice this year, “said Rogelio Getigan Jr., chief trainer of the NCR .
The start of Calabarzon was a good start to the deciding frame after Alleiah Malaluan knocked out a row for a 6-4 lead. But this followed a series of errors to give up the advantage of NCR, 8-7.
NCR’s Rizza Cruz refused Malaluan in the final set of 5 following a service ace for 12-10.
Calabarzon has yet to make the fight for gold after Jamie Frago’s 12-all ace, before finally battling the opponent.
Canino is the Most Valuable Player of the Game.
“The coach said, it’s just a blow. When the last point I gave you the ball, I said, ‘come in even weak,'” said Canino’s incoming Grade 9 student. “I’m nervous, but I’m excited too.”
