Philippine Air Force is on a mission to end a two-game losing slump.
Reeling Philippine Air Force and Philippine Coast Guard clash on Wednesday to snap their respective losing skids in the 13th V-League Reinforced Conference at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.
Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air via livestream on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/vleague. It will at 8 P.M. on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23 and S+A HD channel 166.
The Open Conference runner-up Lady Jet Spikers are coming off a two-game slide with its last setback handed by BaliPure, 25-22, 25-19, 25-21 last Monday.
Air Force sits at seventh place with a 1-3 record.
Judy Ann Caballejo and Dell Palomata need to wake up from their scoring slumber to help veterans May Ann Pantino, Joy Cases, Jocemer Tapic and setter Wendy Semana carry Air Force back on the winning track and breathe new life to their already flickering semifinals bid.
The Lady Dolphins, on the other hand, are winless in four starts.
Coast Guard absorbed 25-17, 25-9, 25-16, whipping at the hands of Open Conference champion Pocari Sweat more than a week ago.
Another loss will formally boot the Lady Dolphins out of the Final Four race.
