Flying Titans look to extend five-game winning streak
Choco Mucho coach Dante Alinsunurin swears that he doesn’t know what has made his Flying Titans click so far in the Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference.
All he knows is that he wants this trend to go on.
“We’re very happy, because after not being able to win (in the first two conferences), we are on this streak,” Alinsunurin said in Filipino on the eve of Choco Mucho’s match with dangerous Petro Gazz. “We just want to sustain this thing that we have and achieve our goals later.”
Choco Mucho hasn’t dropped a set in its last five games, dispatching Farm Fresh, Cignal, Galeries, Nxled and Akari to be at 5-1, behind its unbeaten sister team (6-0) and Chery Tiggo (6-1).
Another victory in their 6 p.m. encounter at FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan Thursday will enhance Choco Mucho’s semifinal drive in the season-ending conference and get a shot at avenging a four-set loss to defending champion Creamline later on.
Former Santo Tomas star Sisi Rondina has proven to be the biggest difference for the Flying Titans, who now have a legitimate and reliable go-to scorer.
“I feel like we are the underdogs every time we step onto the floor,” Rondina said in Filipino. “That’s what I feel and that gives me confidence. It makes me work harder and be a fiercer fighter.”
