Pocari Sweat outlasts Air Force to secure PVL Finals seat

MANILA, Philippines – Pocari Sweat's quest to defend its Open Conference crown continues.

The Lady Warriors, left for dead after going down two sets, showed impressive grit in turning back Hair Fairy-Air Force Lady Jet Spikers, 16-25, 20-25, 25-23, 25-19, 15-10, in the do-or-die Game 3 of their semifinals series on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The thrilling five-set win ensured that Pocari Sweat will advance to the Finals of the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference – their fourth straight championship appearance since joining the league last season.

"Sa tema ng laro, wala kaming first ball, at parang walang gana ang players," admitted Pocari coach Rico de Guzman after the game. "Sabi ko, semis na ito – wala ng Game 4."

"Nag-gamble na ako ng tao," he added. "Kung kailangan mo ng panalo, mag-ga-gamble ka na."
