(Filoil EcoOil Centre)
2:30 p.m. — Army vs Cignal
5:30 p.m. — Choco Mucho vs Akari
Choco Mucho eyes to solidify its place in the magic four as it clashes with a desperate Akari that is fighting for dear life today in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference at the Filoil EcoOil Centre.
The Flying Titans kept their place in the top four despite falling to the pace-setting Chery Tiggo Crossovers, 29-27, 18-25, 25-16, 25-20, last Oct. 25 for the former’s second defeat in as many wins.
Coach Oliver Almadro’s charges could keep their place there if they could hurdle the Chargers, who are in dire need of a win following a 1-4 slate, in their encounter at 5:30 p.m.
Choco Mucho has been blowing hot and cold and its fate purely hangs on how its setters would perform as Mr. Almadro has been splitting minutes between Deanna Wong and Jem Ferrer.
Meanwhile, Cignal (1-2) and United Auctioneers Army (0-4) are out for nothing less than a win that should breathe life to their dying campaigns.
They face off at 2:30 p.m.
Both were coming off a stinging loss with the HD Spikers succumbing to the Creamline Cool Smashers, 25-18, 22-25, 25-22, 25-12, last Oct. 22 in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, and the Lady Troopers absorbing a heartbreaking 22-25, 25-18, 25-27, 25-18, 15-12 setback to the Crossovers Thursday at the PhilSports Arena. — Joey Villar
