at The Arena in San Juan City.

The Chef’s Classics tossers, however, will have their hand full in their 4 p.m. tussle with Motolite – a team raring to recover from a 25-14, 25-15, 25-14 loss to the Creamline Cool Smashers.

Out to lead Motolite are former collegiate stars in Myla Pablo, Tots Carlos and Isa Molde.

Also expected to provide firepower for Motolite are Marist Layug and Iris Tolenada.

Motolite has known hitters in its fold but problem with the Power Builders is offensive rhythm. They had only six excellent sets the last time.

Chef’s Classics, meanwhile, aims to make an impact with former La Salle standout Justin Tiu and twins Nieza and Ella Viray leading the asault along with setter Noreen Gabriana and liberos Julia Angeles and Mialyn Manabat.

In the other pairing, BanKo-Perlas is coming off a 25-23, 25-23, 17-25, 25-20 loss to Pacifictown Army while Air Force yielded to Creamline, 25-23, 25-20, 25-15, in its first match after a short hiatus.

Nicole Tiamzon is tipped to lead the Perlas Spikers along with Dzi Gervacio, Sue Roces and Kathy Bersola while the Lady Jet Spikers have Dell Palomata, May Ann Pantino and Judy Caballejo in charge of the assault. (KRISTEL SATUMBAGA)
