Unbeaten HD Spikers, Builders eye solo lead
MANILA, Philippines - Cignal TV Inc. and Mega Builders gear up for what promises to be a fierce duel of unbeaten teams with contrasting styles as they dispute the solo lead – and the first semifinal berth – tomorrow in a key men’s Premier Volleyball League Open Conference match at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan.
The HD Spikers, seeking a follow-up to their recent Reinforced Conference feat, and the Volley Bolt, one of the league’s three newcomers making a big impact in the country’s premier men’s volley league, have swept their first four games in emphatic fashions, making their 1 p.m. clash truly a match to watch.
But while Cignal anchors its surge on attacks, Mega Builders continues to bank on its blocking prowess in dismantling its rivals. In fact, Volley Bolt teammates Kim Malabunga and Francis Sauri emerged as the league’s leading blockers with 12 and 11, respectively, midway through the single round elims of the tournament organized by Sports Vision.
