BanKo clashes with PacificTown Army in an early rematch of last conference's battle for third.
BanKo seeks to score a follow up to its morale-boosting opening day win when it squares off with PacificTown Army on Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Opening serve is at 6:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.
The Perlas Spikers are tied with defending champion Creamline at the top spot after hurdling their respective opponents to start the season-ending conference.
BanKo will be extra-motivated when they face the Lady Troopers as the Perlas Spikers look to exact revenge over their Reinforced Conference battle for third tormentors.
The veteran duo of Dzi Gervacio and Nicole Tiamzon, who led BanKo to a 25-20, 11-25, 25-21, 25-18, win over PetroGazz, are again at the forefront of the Perlas Spikers’ charge.
Fresh from their podium finish in their first run in the league, the Lady Troopers march back into action with the same battle-tested core led by Royse Tubino, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Ging Balse-Pabayo, Nene Bautista and young setter Alina Bicar.
