Pocari Sweat guns for semis slot

Pocari Sweat seeks a semifinal entry as it puts its six-game run on the line against Creamline today even as BaliPure tries to rebound from a sorry setback in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The Lady Warriors are on a roll since dropping their first two matches, beating Air Force, Creamline, the Power Smashers, BaliPure and Perlas twice to zero in on the first semi-final berth in the season-opening conference of the country’s longest running volley league organized by Sports Vision.
Its come-from-behind five-set win over BaliPure last Thursday kept Pocari Sweat’s stirring rebound from a poor start going but the Lady Warriors brace for what could be their toughest test against the back-to-the-wall Cool Smashers in their featured 6:30 p.m. encounter.
While Pocari is out in front with a 6-2 card, two games ahead of BaliPure’s 4-2 slate, Creamline is down at fifth in the six-team field with only two wins to show against four setbacks.
But with imports Laura Schaudt and Kuttika Kaewpin now finally set to see action, Alyssa Valdez expects to share the spotlight with their two reinforcements, thus easing up the load on the power-hitting phenom, who has failed to carry the team by her lonesome despite her 25-hit norm.
Meanwhile, BaliPure hopes to strike back as it likewise zeroes in on the second semis berth in the league backed by Mikasa and Asics against lowly Air Force at 4 p.m.
Perlas and the Power Smashers also tangle in a key duel at 1 p.m. with the former, which swept Air Force late Thursday, gunning for its fifth win against three losses. The Power Smashers, on the other hand, seek to improve to 4-3.
