Ateneo-Motolite aims for a conference sweep of Pocari Sweat-Air Force.
Ateneo-Motolite shoots for a repeat win over Pocari Sweat-Air Force in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference Saturday at the Imus Sports Complex in Imus, Cavite.
Action begins at 6:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.
The Lady Eagles are looking to get back on the winning track after seeing their three-game winning streak snapped by Creamline, 23-25, 17-25, 14-25, last week in Baliwag, Bulacan where Ateneo-Motolite played sans Kat Tolentino, Maddie Madayag and Ponggay Gaston.
Ateneo-Motolite closed the opening round with a 5-2 card.
Tolentino, Madayag and Gaston are expected to suit up after skipping their last assignment to attend a community immersion as part of their academic requirement.
Ateneo-Motolite stunned Pocari Sweat-Air Force, 25-23, 17-25, 25-20, 30-28, in their conference opener last September 23.
Meanwhile, the Lady Warriors continue to blow hot and cold with an even 4-4 record.
After closing the first round with a five-set win over BanKo, Pocari Sweat bowed down to Tacloban, 25-20, 13-25, 26-24, 16-25, 13-15, last Wednesday.
