BanKo and Motolite clash for a podium finish.
Denied of a chance to vie for the crown, BanKo and Motolite try to salvage a podium finish in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 battle for third showdown starting Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Game 1 of the best-of-three affair begins at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.
The Perlas Spikers once again came up short of landing a championship berth after bowing down to PetroGazz in two games in the Final Four.
But BanKo still has a chance to recover lost pride as the Perlas Spikers set their eyes on ending the season with a podium finish after ending up at fourth place in the Reinforced Conference.
Veterans Dzi Gervacio, Nicole Tiamzon, Kathy Bersola and Sue Roces will spearhead the assault of BanKo against the young Motolite squad. The two teams split their elimination round head-to-head.
Motolite hopes to make the most of their first time at the top four as it tries to cap off its second season with a third place finish. Motolite was swept by unbeaten defending champion Creamline in their semis pairing.
Myla Pablo, Isa Molde and Tots Carlos together with Aie Ganabban, Bern Flora, setter Iris Tolenada and Jessma Ramos will lead the charge of Motolite.
