TEAM Cignal HD debuted in the Philippine SuperLiga volleyball tournament on a high note with a five-set thriller at the Cuneta Astrodome.
Cignal, which has three Cebuanos in the lineup, defeated Systema Active, 25-14, 25-17, 17-25, 23-25, 15-13, to jumpstart the men’s competition.
Cebuano players Emmanuel Marlon Luces, Mike Abria and Ken Boyd Abunda are playing for team Cignal HD and was ecstatic with the win in their first pro league.
“We are very happy with the win and hopefully we can duplicate that in our next game,” said Luces.
The team’s next match will be on May 24.
During the game, according to Luces, they were leading and were just a set to victory when the team rested on this thought.
“The team became complacent in the third set and team Systema Active took advantage of it and won the third and fourth sets to arrange a deciding set,” said Luces.
Team Cignal HD also has Cebuano players in its women’s teams.
They are Danika Gendrauli, Raphril Aguilar, Abigail Praca and Kennette Garces. (ISL)
