Thriving in games that mattered, Pablo kept the Lady Warriors’ hopes for a fourth straight championship alive.

Pocari Sweat’s Myla Pablo earned the Philips Gold-PVL Press Corps Player of the Week for games played from August 2-6.

Thriving in games that mattered, Pablo kept the Lady Warriors’ hopes for a fourth straight championship alive.

Pocari Sweat got a lifeline as it avoided elimination with a 25-22, 16-25, 23-25, 25-21, 15-12 win over Philippine Air Force in Game 2 of their semifinals series last Sunday.

Pablo came through with 20 attacks and two blocks to finish with 22 points and had 12 digs to power the Lady Warriors in tying the best-of-three series at one game apiece.

“We just kept the faith and showed teamwork,” said Pablo.

It was a huge bounce back victory for Pocari Sweat after last Saturday’s disappointing 20-25, 19-25, 20-25 loss in the semis opener.

Pablo led the Lady Warriors in Game 1 with 13 points and seven digs.

One of the leading contenders for the conference MVP honors, Pablo led all comers in scoring in the elimination round with 143 points on 128 spikes, 11 blocks and four service aces.

The former National University star wound up second in spiking department with 39.75 percent success rating and No. 9 in blocking with 0.42 average per set.

Pablo bested the BaliPure’s Aiko Urdas and Creamline’s Rosemarie Vargas for the weekly honors.
