Myla Pablo of Pocari Sweat-Air Force face off with sister Marites as the Lady Warriors collide with PetroGazz in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference.
Pocari Sweat-Air Force top hitter Myla Pablo will get a chance to test the mettle of her younger sister Marites on Wednesday when the Lady Warriors take on PetroGazz in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at Malolos Sports and Convention Center in Malolos, Bulacan.
Game time is at 6:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.
The Lady Warriors started their campaign on the wrong foot after suffering an upset loss to a young Motolite-Ateneo de Manila University, 23-25, 25-17, 20-25, 28-30, despite the 30-point effort of Reinforced Conference Most Valuable Player Myla Pablo last Sunday in Imus, Cavite.
On the other hand, the Angels opened their campaign on a high note with a 25-22, 25-14, 26-24 demolition of Tacloban last Saturday.
But PetroGazz’s luck run short the following day after absorbing a 22-25, 17-25, 25-22, 17-25, defeat at the hands of league-leading BanKo.
Marites Pablo, who didn’t see action in the Angels’ opening game, debuted with eight points.
This will be the first time the Pablo sisters will face each other after playing together in the UAAP as part of the National University Lady Bulldogs. The younger Pablo transferred to College of St. Benilde in 2016.
