PVL: Tigers hunt for first semis seat
University of Sto. Tomas guns for the first Final Four berth.

Still perfect University of Sto. Tomas shoots for the first Final Four berth in a showdown with University of the Philippines Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference men’s division at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Tigers are unbeaten in six matches to keep a firm hold of the solo top spot.

UST is looking to extend its winning streak to seven in the scheduled 11:00 a.m. match after the 9:00 a.m. duel between NCAA Season 93 finalists University of Perpetual Help and Arellano University.

The Tigers are on a roll, winning five of their six matches in straight sets including their last three games.

But the Fighting Maroons are expected to give UST challenge especially with UP coming off back-to-back wins via sweep.

The Maroons sport a 4-2 slate.

Meanwhile, Perpetual will try to notch its second win to remain in contention for a semis seat.

The reigning NCAA champions Altas hold a 1-5 mark while the Chiefs are winless in six outings.
