THE CHOCO MUCHO Flying Titans would have to chase their first Premier Volleyball League crown minus one of their top spikers in Des Cheng.

Ms. Cheng tore her left ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in the second set of the franchise’s 25-21, 25-19, 25-18 win over Cignal Thursday in Antipolo City and was ruled out the rest of the ongoing All-Filipino Conference.

“After careful review of her MRI results, our doctors have diagnosed that it is an ACL tear that will require surgery and rehabilitation,” said Choco Mucho management in a recent statement.

“Management will ensure that Des is given the best possible treatment and medical care in order to get her back to fighting form. The team is saddened over this development, but is hopeful for her safe return,” it added.

Without Ms. Cheng, the Flying Titans, currently with a 2-1 record, would have to rely heavily on the energetic Sisi Rondina as well as Isa Molde and Kat Tolentino.

Choco Mucho’s next game pits it with Galeries Tower Thursday at the Sta. Rosa Sports Complex in Laguna. — Joey Villar
