Undermanned Pocari Sweat eased past Iriga City, 25-16, 25-18, 24-26, 25-20, Saturday to formalize its entry into the semifinals of the Shakey’s V-League Season 13 Open Conference at Blue Eagle Gym.

The Lady Warriors played without their star hitters Michele Gumabao and Myla Pablo for the second straight game and still remained undefeated at 5-0.

With the Final Four in the bag, Pocari Sweat is now eyeing to finish in the top two heading into the playoffs.
