Nasungkit ng Motolite ang kanilang back-to-back victories nitong Linggo sa Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference dahil sa tulong ni setter Iris Tolenada.
Wagi ang Motolite kontra BaliPure Water Defenders, 25-9, 25-20, 25-19, sa tulong ni Fil-American Tolenada na nagtala ng 17 excellent sets at apat na puntos.
“We always talk, before I tell her anything about what I’m expecting from her, I just tell her ‘I know, and I believe you know what I’m about to say and I don’t need to tell you this,’ that’s what I always tell her. ‘I don’t have to tell you this.’ So it’s something that she knows,” sambit ni head coach Godfrey Okumu patungkol kay Tolenada.
“I think we have to find a way for the team to jell together, how to defend, how to attack. This player plays this ball perfectly, get the ball, maybe she’s struggling. So those are the things that again we have to find a way as we go so we make it easier for her to know how to play with different spikers, but all in all, the work is easy. She makes the work easy.” giit ni Okumu.
Dahil sa magandang performance ni team captain Tolenada, nakahataw si skipper Myla Pablo ng 12 markers at Isa Molde ng siyam na puntos sa laban para sa 2-1 record ng Motolite.
“Our coaches just count on us on about being as consisted as possible. I thought our passing and out defense were great. We adapted to coaches plan pretty well for the most part and we just got out there and competed as much as possible. So consistency and competing hard is just what we wanna do,” paliwanag ni Tolenada.
