University of the Philippines and Team Laoag clash today in what promises to be a fierce, intense duel for the fourth and last semifinal berth in the Shakey’s V-League Season 13 Open Conference at the Philsports Arena in Pasig.

The Lady Maroons gained a crack at the Final Four by ousting the fancied National U Lady Bulldogs, 25-22, 25-27, 25-13, 25-22, last Saturday, tying the Power Smashers at fourth with 3-3 slates heading to today’s final elims playdate of the season-opening conference of the league sponsored by Shakey’s.

Laoag swept Baguio in its last outing last June 18 with the Power Smashers coming into the 4 p.m. match well-rested and motivated for a possible Final Four stint right on its maiden season in the league where it all started.
