PVL: Angels complete semis cast
PetroGazz clinched the last Final Four seat after a cakewalk win over Adamson-Akari.

PetroGazz barely broke a sweat in sweeping hapless Adamson-Akari, 25-21, 25-9, 25-15, Sunday to complete the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference semifinals cast at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Angels started out flat but was quick to recover to claim their third straight win for an 8-5 win-loss record while adding more woes to the winless Lady Falcons.

PetroGazz joined BanKo (10-3), Ateneo-Motolite (10-4) and Creamline (9-3) in the best-of-three Final Four after completing a back-to-back weekend schedule sweep. The Jerry Yee-mentored squad defeated Ateneo-Motolite in four sets last Saturday. 

The Angels’ victory booted out Pocari Sweat-Air Force, which missed the semis for the first time in franchise history, and Tacloban, which are tied at 6-7 slates.

Jessey de Leon poured 13 of her 14 points on attacks to highlight the Angels' 46-kill performance. Cherry Nunag and Alyssa Layug added 13 and 11 markers, respectively, for PetroGazz.  

The Lady Falcons, who fielded Eli Soyud for the first time after recovering from a knee injury but still played without Bernadette Flora (back spasm) and Lea Anne Perez (ankle sprain), absorbed its 12th straight loss in as many games.

No Adamson-Akari player scored in double figures with rookie Trisha Genesis posting six points while Soyud, who only played in the third set, and Chrislyn Uy added five markers each.
