Bali Pure opened the semifinals of the Shakey’s V-League Reinforced Conference with a quick sweep of Bureau of Customs, 25-19, 25-18, 25-21, Saturday at Philsports Arena.

Katherine Morrell led the Water Defenders with 20 points as they take a 1-0 lead in their best-of-three series against the Transformers.


Bali Pure captain Kaylee Manns said their main objective was to stop Alyssa Valdez from going into an offensive groove and she admits it wasn’t the easiest of jobs to pull off.

“It was really hard but we calmed down,” said Manns. “We’re working on timing [Valdez’ shots]. We have to minimize her points and I think we did that today.”


Valdez finished with 15 points while BOC import Kanjana Kuthaisong added 10.

Amy Ahomiro had 13 points for Bali Pure.

BOC was at the constant mercy of Bali Pure’s attacks as the Water Defenders scored on 42 spikes compared to the Transformers’ 28.
