Banko-Perlas swept its way to the semifinals after drubbing Petro Gazz, 25-19, 25-19, 25-19, on Wednesday night in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The Perlas Spikers, who had a so-so eliminations run except for a rousing upset of title-favorites Creamline Cool Smashers, completed a 5-0 sweep of the quarterfinals to become the third team in the Final Four.


The win, BanKo’s seventh straight dating to the eliminations, also gave a free ride to the semifinals to defending champion Pocari Sweat-Air Force, which ended the quarters with a 4-1 record.

Pocari will take on Creamline at 1:45 p.m. while BanKo Perlas faces Paymaya at 3:45 p.m. in the best-of-three semifinals starting Sunday.


Nicole Tiamzon topscored among the locals for BanKo with nine points as she diverted Petro Gazz’s defense from imports Lakia Bright and Jutarat Montripila.

BaliPure and Tacloban, already out of the running, were still locked in battle in a nonbearing match at press time.
