All eyes are set on Bryan Bagunas as he tries to lead Mega Builders to a Finals berth.
Cignal and Mega Builders go for the jugular against their respective semifinals opponents Sunday to forge a championship showdown in the men’s division of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The HD Spikers look to finish off Sta. Elena in their 10:00 a.m. match while the Volley Bolt seek to send Air Force packing when they lock horns at 1:00 p.m. in a duel that will air via livestream.
Cignal behind Ysay Marasigan, Rex Intal and Lorenzo Capate silenced the Wrecking Balls, 25-16, 25-16, 20-25, 25-18, in their series opener Saturday.
Returning national team member Bryan Bagunas led the Mega Builders’ comeback from two sets down to get past Philippine Air Force, 19-25, 16-25, 25-20, 26-24, 15-10, for a 1-0 series lead.
Game 3, if necessary, is on Wednesday.
The Finals is also a best-of-three affair.
