Pocari Sweat hopes to extend its winning streak to five games when it goes for a repeat against Perlas Spikers today in the Premier Volleyball League women’s tournament at The Arena in San Juan City.

Since dropping their first two games, the Lady Warriors have been on a roll – small wonder they are heavily favored in their 6:30 p.m. encounter with the Perlas Spikers.

Charming but power-hitting Myla Pablo is again expected to spearhead the team’s onslaught with help likely to come from Elaine Kasilag.

The two were rampant in the team’s 25-21, 25-20, 25-16 triumph over the Power Smashers three days ago.

Aside from their balanced firepower, Lady Warriors are also the second-best serving team in the conference.

Through the thunder-like spikes of Pablo and Kasilag, not mention their solid defense, the Lady Warriors clobbered the Perlas Spikers, 25-19, 25-19, 25-19, in the first round.

With a 3-2 card, Perlas is taking the game like a do-or-die as it intends to boost its position going into the semis.

Also going for Perlas is that is still fresh from a 22-25, 22-25, 25-22, 25-16, 15-12 win over erstwhile unbeaten BaliPure.

Out to lead Perlas are former Ateneo mainstays Amy Ahomiro and Dzi Gervacio.

Perlas has also a solid support casr in University of the Philippines standouts Kathy Bersola and Nicole Tiamzon, veteran Sue Roces, and Sasa Devanadera.

Meanwhile, BaliPure (3-1) tries to bounce back from that recent defeat to Perlas when it collides with Creamline (2-3) at 4 p.m.
