Skidding teams Tacloban Fighting Warays and Iriga-Navy Lady Oragons clash for the right to earn their victory win in the quarterfinals of the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference on Saturday.
You can catch the action live from the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan at 2:00 p.m. on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD channel 166 and via livestream.
The Fighting Warays are coming from a sorry 15-25, 17-25, 21-25 drubbing at the hands of Petro Gazz last Wednesday that saw them slide to a 0-2 hole in the quarterfinals.
The Lady Oragons, meanwhile, dropped to a similar winless record after falling short against the no. 1 quarterfinal team Pocari Sweat- Air Force last Wednesday, 25-23, 18-25, 20-25, 22-25.
The two squads last met last May 30, where Tacloban swept Iriga-Navy, 25-20, 25-22, 27-25.
The Creamline Cool Smashers and the PayMaya High Flyers are already through to the semifinals in women's play.
The last two Final Four berths will then go to the top two finishers in the round robin quarterfinals among Tacloban, Iriga-Navy, Pocari Sweat-Air Force, BanKo Perlas, Petro Gazz, and BaliPure-NU.
