Four fancied teams bolster their respective title bids today when the semifinal action of the Shakey’s V-League Season 13 Reinforced Conference heats up at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

Top seed Pocari Sweat tries to keep its momentum going when it clashes with bitter rival University of Santo Tomas at 6 p.m., while fan favorites Bureau of Customs and BaliPure collide at 4 p.m.

Bannered by American import Breanna Mackie, the Pocari Lady Warriors hope to duplicate their 25-16, 25-23, 22-25, 25-14 elims win against the UST Tigresses last Thursday in order to draw the first blood on their best-of-three semis affair.

Equally exciting would be the Customs-BaliPure duel, with BOC Transformers’ star player Alyssa Valdez going up anew with former teammates in the Water Defenders.

BaliPure holds a slight advantage against Customs after winning their first encounter, 26-24, 25-21, 25-21, behind the efforts of Kate Morrell, Dzi Gervacio, Amy Ahomiro, and Sue Roces.
