Janisa Johnson came up with Premier Volleyball League debut to remember Wednesday night, delivering 27 attack points as BaliPure gutted out a thrilling 22-25, 25-23, 28-26, 22-25, 15-12 victory over Petro Gazz to get back on track in the Reinforced Conference at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Unable to suit up for the Purest Water Defenders’ losing stand against the Iriga-Navy Lady Oragons last week, the power-hitting American poured it all against the Angels, finishing with 31 total points, the last coming off a combination play that ended the back-and-forth two-hour encounter.

The Water Defenders, backstopped by the young members of the Nazareth School of National University, wriggled out of an 8-all contest in the deciding set with four unanswered points that basically sealed the outcome.

The victory thus put BaliPure in step with defending champion Pocari-Air Force at 1-1 with BanKo-Perlas and Tacloban, also with 1-1 slates, disputing a share of the lead at presstime.
