12:30 p.m. – Army vs Champion (S Turf)
4 p.m. – UP vs Bali Pure (V-League)
6 p.m. – Pocari vs Customs (V-League)
Customs and Pocari Sweat clash today in a duel of fancied bets with the Transformers seeking at least a playoff for the last semifinal berth and the Lady Warriors out to step up their own Final Four drive in the Shakey’s V-League Season 13 Reinforced Conference at the Philsports Arena in Pasig.
The match set at 6 p.m. will be Alyssa Valdez’s first against Michelle Gumabao and company since the Lady Warriors eased out the former’s BaliPure squad in the semifinals of the Open Conference.
Pocari Sweat won the crown on its very first try with the Lady Warriors all primed up for a crack at another championship in the season-ending conference of the league sponsored by Shakey’s.
But they’ll be taking a fired-up Valdez and her new team Customs, guaranteeing a fierce, no-holds-barred encounter between two squads, which also boast of talented pair of reinforcements.
The match will be aired live over ABS-CBN Sports + Action Channel 17 or 23 and via streaming on www.sports.abs-cbn.com and via streaming on www.v-league,ph.
Valdez, the league’s leading scorer with 92 hits in four games, has the Thai tandem of Kanjana Kuthaisong and setter Natthanicha Jaisaen to lean on and a solid local crew led by Rose Marie Vargas, Lilet Mabbayad, Rizza Mandapat and Pau Soriano.
