Three eye V-L semis slots
THREE teams shoot for the last two semifinal berths in the Shakey’s V-League Season 13 Collegiate Conference today at Philsports Arena.
San Sebastian College and University of the Philippines square off at 4 p.m., with the winner joining National U and Far Eastern U in the Final Four.
Ateneo, hoping to have finally hit its stride, also aims to advance in the 6 p.m. duel versus FEU.
The Lady Eagles can claim the last semifinal ticket with a victory, but a loss still gives them a chance to fight for a slot in a playoff against the loser of the San Sebastian-UP match.
Ateneo stayed in contention after blasting ousted University of Santo Tomas, 25-22, 25-19, 25-19, Monday.
As the Lady Eagles hope to have overcome their sluggish form, the Lady Stags try to play consistently behind last conference’s MVP Grethcel Soltones.
“We’ll pull away, then we’ll let our opponent catch up,” Soltones said of the Lady Stags’ tendency to blow early leads.
A pair of crucial men’s matches are also up in the Spikers’ Turf Season 2.
FEU (3-1) and La Salle (3-1) fight for a semifinal berth at 10 a.m. while UST (3-1) also goes for a win against also-ran Emilio Aguinaldo College at 12 noon to join Group B leader Ateneo (5-0). Jasmine W. Payo
