Even though the Antipolo-based California squad dominated the first, third, and fourth set, they regret forgoing the second set to the highlanders, Baguio. 

The team admitted that they are not in their best condition compared to their previous games.

“Maganda kasi nanalo kami sa first PNVF namin pero kulang pa din kasi nakakuha sila ng set,” said Dongallo.

“We set a standard that’s high especially last game we played better than we played this day po,” added Gajero referring to Monday’s three-set loss to Chery Tiggo.

While acknowledging the competence and gameplay of the Baguio squad, Precision youngsters believed that they ‘could have done better.’ 

“We could have done better than that especially iba yung level ng Cal Precision Sports so dapat angat po talaga. Hindi naman po sa binababa, they’re good team but Cal Precision sports has a different level,” said Krizzie Madriaga, who made 19 excellent sets.

Caisey Dongallo scored 25 points on attacks and collected seven digs while Jelai Gajero added 16 points and eight digs. 

Meanwhile, the Lady Highlanders fell to 0-4, and none of their players were able to score double figures.

California Precision Sports’ last game for the PNVF league is against PetroGazz (2-1) on Wednesday at 1:30 pm, while Baguio faces offChery Tiggo (2-1) at 4 pm.
