Cignal zeroes in on claiming the Open Conference title.
Cignal aims to complete a sweep of the best-of-three Premier Volleyball League Open Conference men’s division Finals series against Mega Builders Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The HD Spikers go for the jugular at 1:00 p.m. to claim their second straight title after ruling the Reinforced Conference two months ago.
The match will air via livestream. Announcement of individual award winners is also on Saturday.
Behind Ysay Marasigan’s 21-point explosion, Cignal turned back the National University-backed Volley Bolt, 25-23, 21-25, 25-19, 25-17, in the series opener last Wednesday.
If necessary, Game 3 is on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Philippine Air Force is out to pocket the consolation third place trophy in Game 2 of the battle for third against Sta. Elena.
The Jet Spikers drew first blood, 25-22, 25-22, 23-25, 25-16, last Wednesday.
In case the championship series ends in two games and the battle for third extends to a Game 3, the team that will pocket the bronze medal will be decided via quotient.
