Pocari Sweat-Air Force sets its eyes on a final push for the last semis seat.
Pocari Sweat-Air Force tries to salvage its campaign for a semifinals berth on Sunday against also-ran Iriga-Navy in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.
The Lady Warriors have their backs against the wall with a 5-7 win-loss record at sixth spot behind Tacloban (6-7) and PetroGazz (7-5).
Pocari Sweat, which is coming off back-to-back losses, needs to sweep its last two assignments and pray that the Angels will not reach eight wins to force a playoff for the right to join semis-bound Ateneo-Motolite, BanKo and Creamline.
But the Lady Oragons want to write a different script and play the spoilers’ role. Iriga-Navy sports a 3-10 slate and hopes to end its campaign on a winning note.
