PVL: HD Spikers, Volley Masters dispute solo lead

Reigning champion Cignal guns for the solo hold of the lead.
Defending champion Cignal and Instituto Estetico Manila duke it out for the solo lead Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference men's division at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Game time is at 10:00 a.m. and will air via livestream.
The HD Spikers and Phoenix Volley Masters share the top spot with idle Vice Co. with identical 2-1 win-loss records.
Cignal bounced back from a four-set setback against PLDT in its second outing with an emphatic, 25-20, 25-16, 25-10, win over Philippine Air Force last Sunday in a rematch of last year’s Finals showdown.
Marck Espejo, Rex Intal and Usay Marasigan, who led the way for the HD Spikers in their last outing, are again expected to step up for Cignal.
But it won’t be an easy task.
IEM is aching to get back on the win column after suffering a 30-28, 21-25, 23-25, 16-25, loss to Vice Co. last week.
Greg Dolor, Mark Enciso and Jeffrey Jimenez will spearhead the Phoenix Volley Masters’ march.
