Surging San Sebastian College and Far Eastern University clash to boost their respective bids for a semifinals spot on Saturday in the 13th V-League Collegiate Conference at The Arena in San Juan.
Game time is set at 4:00 p.m. and will air live over ABS-CBN Sports+Action Channel 23, ABS-CBN Sports+Action HD Channel 166 and via livestream on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/vleague.
Both the Lady Stags and Lady Tamaraws are tied at 2-1 carryover slate and can secure at least a playoff with a win.
Behind the 23-point explosion of top Most Valuable Player contender Grethcel Soltones, SSC-R eliminated University of Sto. Tomas, 25-20, 25-18, 16-25, 25-19, last Wednesday and extended their winning run to three since the prelims.
Aside from Soltones, the Lady Stags will also lean on Joyce Sta. Rita, Katherine Villegas, Nikka Dalisay, Denice Lim and setter Vira Guillema to deliver another victory.
After a clean sweep of the four-game preliminary round, FEU absorbed its first loss in the conference bowing down to the defending champion National University Lady Bulldogs, 17-25, 26-24, 25-14, 18-25, 11-15, four days ago.
The Lady Tams will pin their hope to veteran hitters Toni Rose Basas, Remy Palma, and Bernadeth Pons, Heather Guino-o and playmaker Kyle Negrito to bring FEU back on the winning track.
