Fighting relentlessly in the nets and defending the floor very well, PetroGazz won the rubber match of their semifinal series on Monday night and took everything that Signal HD could offer to advance to the Premier Volleyball League title series.
To lose focus in the third set, the hard-fought HD Spykers secured their place in the top-three championships by beating the Angels 25-21, 28-26, 15-25, 25-21. The series against Powerhouse Glamor Team Crimline starts on Wednesday at the Asia Arena at POS Mall.

The first match of the title series is at 7 pm
Meanwhile, with a 1-0 lead in the title series and several months away from losing the rubber match despite two set-ups, the Crimline can’t wait to start the series.
Charismatic captain Alyssa Valdez said: ‘It’s a lot different than last year. But [that loss] This year has served as an additional inspiration for our campaign. And it shows in our games how hard we worked to get back to the finals – all the players and the coaching staff are so focused. “
This time it’s really different, as the crowd has been allowed to return, with nearly 17,000 animated fans expressing their strong support for the action last Sunday.
They will face off against a hard-nosed Petrogazz team that can chase every possible ball against the signal to lead their side to a 2-1 victory in the semifinals.
The Crimline have taken a place in the title series without losing a game because Valdez has enough support at this point.
The star-studded cool smashers have underestimated their ability to win the title by clearing their group assignments before bundling Cherry Tigo in the quarterfinals and sweeping the sister team Choco Mucho in the semifinals. INQ
