However, the Marcelinos won’t deny that stopping Salado was a challenge like no other, given the speed of the lead Chief.“It really was tough because it’s the first time we faced him. It was hard to stop him, but it was a challenge for us and we enjoyed defending a known player,” said Jayvee.Robinson was glad to see players like the Marcelinos step up to the task as he continues to challenge the rest of his crew.“I always challenge these players. They know that this is an opportunity for them to really showcase their talent,” he said. “We always try to remember where they were before, on what happened to them before they got to Lyceum. So we’re just making sure that they’re motivated, they want to really prove and try to win for the team.”Lyceum stakes its 4-0 record against Mapua on Friday.ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more
