Bersola’s career-high 24 points keeps Spikers alive and kicking

BanKo started strong on Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre only to find themselves in a two-set hole.

Kathy Bersola was not going to let them go down without a fight, however.

On the back of a career-game by their middle hitter, the Perlas Spikers pulled out an even stronger finish by pulling out a come-from-behind victory versus BaliPure, 24-26, 13-25, 25-13, 25-22, and 15-11 to remain in contention in the 2017 Premier Volleyball League Open Conference.

Bersola dropped 24 big points, by far the best output in her career, as well as one of the two points that completed her team’s comeback. “Sobrang binigyan kasi nila ako ng tiwala kaya ni-try ko lang talaga best ko. Gusto ko lang talaga manalo,” she said post-game.

BanKo blitzed its opponents, 8-1, to open the game, but was unable to sustain the momentum and surrendered the first two sets.

With their campaign on the line, team captain Sue Roces rallied her troops. “Pinag-usapan namin na this would probably leave us out of the semis if we lost. Kaya kailangan talaga namin mag-show ng pride,” Bersola shared.
