PVL: Air Force turns back PacificTown-Army
MANILA, Philippines–Air Force struck down PacificTown-Army, 25-22, 25-21, 25-19, Saturday night in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference at FilOil Flying V Center.
The Jet Spikers launched a crippling assault — a daring blitz from 10-11 to 19-11 in the third set — to finish off the Lady Troopers and score only their third victory in eight matches.
PacificTown-Army, which fell to 4-4, was completely shellshocked by their Armed Forces sister team which scored its third straight triumph.
“We have become aggressive and began to enjoy the game,” said Dell Palomata in Filipino. “We just want to give our all every game.”
The soft-spoken middle blocker, who scored 20 points, bared that Air Force hired a new trainer from Japan who introduced new training regimen to the squad.
