PVL: Tigresses gun for first semis spot

University of Sto. Tomas shoots for their fifth straight win and the first Final Four seat.
Unblemished University of Sto. Tomas zeroes in on the first semifinals berth when the Tigresses face College of St. Benilde in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Saturday.
Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air via livestream.
UST went off to a hot start, steamrolling past their first three assignments – all NCAA teams - in dominating fashion before crushing UAAP rivals University of the Philippines in four sets.
Rookie Eya Laura and Fil-Italian sophomore Milena Alessandrini are playing consistently this conference, leading the Espana-based squad’s offense.
But the Tigresses will go up against a resurging team, which is coming off a four-set win over San Beda University last week to enter the win column after starting its campaign with back-to-back losses.
The Lady Blazers are currently at fifth spot.
