MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) - RC Cola Army’s efforts to end the preliminary round on a high note paid off as they routed the Cignal HD Spikers, 25-16, 25-9, 25-23 in the Philippine Super Liga Grand Prix on Thursday, November 24 at the Filoil Flying V Arena.
Jovelyn Gonzaga catapulted her team to victory, putting up 17 points and 15 excellent spikes.
Gonzaga and the rest of the RC Cola squad crushed Cignal in the first two sets, and managed to pull away with the victory after a tight game in the third.
