Motolite will try to end a four-game losing slump and close the first round on a high note.
Winless squads Motolite and BaliPure collide for a chance to barge in the win column on Sunday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and 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, iWant and via livestream.
Motolite is down with a four-game losing streak at the bottom of the standings.
The Air Padda-mentored squad suffered a 25-13, 19-25, 16-25, 23-25, defeat at the hands of defending champion Creamline on Saturday in the first of its back-to-back weekend schedule.
Top local hitter Myla Pablo is expected to sit out Motolite’s end of first round match. Pablo is nursing a back injury and is yet to see action this conference.
Meanwhile, the Water Defenders are also winless in three outings.
BaliPure is coming off a 19-25, 12-25, 15-25, loss to undefeated league-leading PetroGazz last Wednesday.
