Cignal, Chery Tiggo clash for crucial win


Games today:

(Philsports Arena)

4 p.m. — Capital1 vs Akari

6 p.m. — Cignal vs Chery Tiggo


The race to the semifinals heats up as Chery Tiggo and Cignal clash in a crucial match in the Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference today at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

The 6 p.m. encounter is so crucial for both the Crossovers and the HD Spikers, tied at fifth with 5-2 records, with the winner not only securing a tie with Creamline and Petro Gazz for third place but also gaining momentum as the preliminary round heads to its final stretch.

Meanwhile, Akari and Capital1 clash at 4 p.m. with the Chargers looking to improve its 3-5 card and the Solar Spikers eyeing their second win against seven defeats.

Chery Tiggo will march into battle with a slight advantage in terms of momentum after winning their last three matches following an unexpected loss to the Farm Fresh Foxies. This impressive streak includes impressive victories over powerhouse teams such as the Cool Smashers and a thrilling five-set win against the Angels, underscoring the Crossovers’ capacity and resolve to overcome adversity.

Conversely, the HD Spikers are still finding their footing after recent setbacks to Choco Mucho and the Cool Smashers, although they managed to bounce back with a victory over the Foxies last Thursday.

Faced with the challenge of halting Chery Tiggo’s run and fuel their own stretch-run charge, the HD Spikers are expected to employ innovative strategies and adjustments to disrupt their opponents’ rhythm and tactics.

Cignal coach Shaq delos Santos will be banking on standout performances from key players like Jovelyn Gonzaga, Ces Molina, Roselyn Doria, Riri Meneses, Vanie Gandler and playmaker Gel Cayuna.

Additionally, he hopes to leverage the talents of Chai Troncoso, Chin Basas, Jovelyn Fernandez and Jacqueline Acuna to strengthen the team’s prospects.

But Chery Tiggo also boasts of a formidable lineup with coach Kungfu Reyes to rely on players who have consistently delivered high-scoring performances, led by sisters Eya and EJ Laure, Mylene Paat and Ara Galang.

The contribution of Aby Maraño, Cza Carandang, Cess Robles and Pauline Gaston, who combined for 30 points in their five-set victory over the Angels, also highlights the depth and versatility of the Crossovers’ roster.
