BanKo and Iriga-Navy square off in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference opener.
Considered as one of the top title contenders, BanKo gets an early test Saturday with a collision course with a very hungry Iriga-Navy in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference on Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Action will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream starting 6:00 p.m.
A few months ago, the Perlas Spikers claimed third place in the Reinforced Conference. With an intact team composed of veterans, BanKo hopes to make another run for a podium finish.
Middle blocker Kathy Bersola will make her return for the Perlas Spikers after skipping last conference to concentrate on med school.
Bersola will reunite with former University of the Philippines teammate Nicole Tiamzon, Amanda Villanueva, Dzi Gervacio, Jem Ferrer and Ella De Jesus. Also back for the Perlas Spikers are Joy Dacoron and Fhen Emnas.
Grazielle Bombita and the Navy core of May Madulid, Shyrra Cabriana, Reynelen Raterta, Yan Ticar and Hezzymie Acuna will banner the Lady Oragons, who finished seventh in the Reinforced Conference.
