Army eyes q’finals slot, battles Meralco

/ 11:31 PM September 12, 2013

Army tries to rebound from its first loss even as Philippine Air Force seeks to boost its quarterfinal bid against struggling Navy today in the Shakey’s V-League Season 10 Open Conference at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

The Army Women, with a 3-1 record, are in for a tough battle against a dangerous Meralco squad in the 4 p.m. game after the Air Force-Navy duel.

A victory will assure Army a slot in the quarterfinals along with Cagayan Valley.


Meralco, which has picked up its form in its last two games, is also trying to gain entry in the quarterfinals with a match to spare in the elimination round.

Foiled by Cagayan the last time out, Army  hopes to come out with more energy behind Mary Jean Balse and Michelle Carolino.

A listless Army squad dropped a 9-25, 16-25, 20-25 decision to the Rising Suns, who prevailed in just over an hour in the match billed as a championship preview.

The Army Women will have their hands full anew against the Power Spikers who also boast of a solid core led by top hitter Coco Wang and former collegiate stars Stephanie Mercado, Maica Morada and Fille Cainglet.

The Power Spikers have not played since Sept. 3 when they subdued Navy, 25-21, 25-22, 25-16 for their second straight victory.

Air Force is coming off a 25-22, 25-18, 25-17 over a shorthanded Smart squad last week.

Navy finally broke into the win column at the expense of Far Eastern U last Friday.
