PVL: BanKo Perlas snaps skid, stops Adamson
BanKo Perlas posted its first win in the Premier Volleyball League, averting disaster after fending off Adamson University, 25-18, 25-16, 21-25, 25-21, Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre.
Kathy Bersola made sure the Perlas Spikers will get into the winners’ circle when her final attempt found the opening in the Lady Falcons’ broken defense.
With her team getting to 1-2, Bersola hoped they could build off from their first victory and go on a winning run in the remaining four games of the eliminations.
“I hope we can build some momentum,” said Bersola. “This is a big thing for us because there are only seven games in the eliminations and we already lost two, so ideally that’s the ceiling for us in terms of losses.”
“We really wanted to win this and I hope we can win more in our upcoming games.”
BanKo Perlas wasn’t in the safe zone, though, at the beginning of the fourth set as the Lady Falcons continued their upward trajectory from the third period to build and early 13-7 lead.
Nicole Tiamzon had 14 points in her first stint as a member of the starting unit to lead the Perlas Spikers while Bersola added 13.
Amanda Villanueva and Amy Ahomiro also finished in double figures with 12 and 10 points, respectively.
Jema Galanza finished with a game-high 18 points to lead the winless Lady Falcons (0-2).
