Despite coach coming in late, Foton whips Shopinas

By Ivan Saldajeno

SAN JUAN, MM--Foton coach Vilet Ponce De Leon only arrived at the FilOil Flying V Arena during the second set of her team's Monday night PLDT Home Ultera-PSL All-Filipino Conference battle against Shopinas.

She came in just in time to see her squad dominate its weary opponent.

Foton bounced back from a loss to league powerhouse Petron with a 25-17, 25-17, 25-17 win against Shopinas.

The Lady Clickers, who played back-to-back matches, failed to take advantage of the temporary absence of the Lady Tornadoes' mentor as their foes were consistent on the floor to take their second win in three games.

Nicole Tiamzon once again shone brightly for Foton with 19 points, 15 coming off spikes. Patty Orendain contributed 13.

Paneng Mercado and Cha Cruz each tallied five markers for Shopinas, which dropped a loss for the first time this conference.
