Volley Bolts eye solo lead, Jet Spikers seek bounce back win
Kim Malabunga will lead the charge of Mega Builders as it shoots for the solo lead.

Unbeaten Mega Builders aims for a hold of the solo lead when the Volley Bolts clash with Instituto Estetico Manila in the inaugural Premier Volleyball League men’s division elimination round Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Parading a pristine 3-0 win-loss record, the National University-backed Volley Bolts look to extend their winning run and shake off from a share of the lead with idle Cignal.

Game time is at 1:00 p.m. and will air via livestream.

Mega Builders easily dismantled fellow newcomer Gamboa Coffee, 25-23, 25-11, 25-16, last week behind Kim Malanunga’s 12 points and 10 markers from Fauzi Ismail.

The Phoenix Volley Masters are on a roll after dropping their first match in straight sets against Sta. Elena.

IEM hurdled Café Lupe, 25-18, 27-25, 25-19, before dominating Gamboa Coffee, 25-22, 25-17, 25-13, last Wednesday for a 2-1 slate at third to fourth spots tied with Philippine Air Force.

Meanwhile, the Jet Spikers and Sunrisers collide at 10:00 a.m.

Air Force is raring to rebound from a 20-25, 25-23, 25-17, 22-25, 14-16, loss it absorbed against Philippine Army last week that snapped the Jet Spikers’ two-game winning start.

Café Lupe is winless in three outings tied with Gamboa Coffe at the cellar.
