Games Today (Philsports, Pasig)
4 p.m. – TIP vs San Sebastian
6 p.m. – Ateneo vs Perpetual
San Sebastian and Technological Institute of the Philippines dispute the first quarterfinal berth today while Ateneo and Perpetual Help fight for survival in a pair of crucial matches in Group A of the Shakey’s V-League Season 13 Collegiate Conference at the Philsports Arena in Pasig.
The Lady Stags and the Lady Engineers posted a win-loss-win record each to tie for second behind unbeaten National U with the winner in the 4 p.m. encounter clinching the first quarters seat in their side of the competition in the mid-season conference of the league sponsored by Shakey’s.
University of the Philippines (3-0), Far Eastern U (2-0) and UST (2-1) have made it to the quarters by taking the top three spots in Group B although all will aim for more wins to boost their respective records in the carryover next round.
With a 2-0 mark, the Lady Bulldogs are actually fancied to advance although the defending champions still need to hurdle either the Lady Altas or the Lady Eagles to formalize their stint in the next round.
That makes the SSC-TIP clash worth watching with the Lady Stags tipped to lean anew on the power-hitting Grethcel Soltones, setter Denice Lim, middle blockers Katherine Villegas and Joyce Sta. Rita.
