MANILA, Philippines – Myla Pablo stepped in to help Petro Gazz insist on a rubber semifinal match against Signal for a ticket to the final of the 2022 Premier Volleyball League Open Conference.
After a scoreless outing playing only one set in Game 1, Pablo revealed his best game yet at the conference, giving Petro Gaz a game-winning hit to beat the previous-undefeated signal 25-22, 21-25, 22-25, 26- 24, 18-16, Game 2 at the Mall of Asia Arena on Sunday evening
The former league MVP did not want to disappoint Angels as he finished with his season-best 17 points, including a clutch hit in the fourth and fifth sets to complete the win from behind.
“We told each other that no one would give up in the fifth set. Ate Chi (Sayet) told us that the game is not over yet. We all know that we have what it takes to fight. We worked together as a team, “said Pablo.

The National University standout fought out throughout the conference, scoring a total of 16 points in just four games from the pool stage to the quarter-finals.
But when his team needed him the most, Pablo showed that he could still lead his team, even playing two different positions in Game 2, the normal position of the opposite hitter or his outside spiker.
“Even though I fought in the last match, the team really believed in me. “I told my coaches that I would do my best to help the team, no matter where I was playing, against or against the open,” said Pablo.
Even after regaining his scoring touch in the series, Pablo is hoping to maintain their momentum with less than 24 hours of preparation against the signal in a do-or-die game 3 at the San Juan Arena on Monday, at 6 p.m.
“We don’t have time for training. We have to apply passing because it helped us win before, “said Pablo.” Everyone wants to win in Game 3. I hope we can reduce our errors. “
