Defending champion Cignal eyes outright Final Four entry in a showdown against Philippine Army.
Defending champion Cignal and Vice Co. set their sights on the two outright semifinals seats as they face their respective foes Wednesday at the close of the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference men’s play at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The HD Spikers will take on Philippine Army at 10:00 a.m. while the Blockbusters square off with Philippine Air Force at 12:00 noon.
Cignal and Vice Co. are tied at first and second spots with 3-1 win-loss records.
A win by both squads will hand them the first best-of-three Final Four spots but in case of a three-way tie at 3-2, the two teams with the higher tiebreak will occupy the automatic semis berths.
The Jet Spikers hold a 2-2 slate while the Troopers sport a 1-3 mark.
The remaining four teams after the prelims will battle in another round robin quarterfinals where the last two semis seats are at stake.
