MANILA, Philippines–PLDT Home Fibr eked out a tough 22-25, 25-22, 25-17, 21-25, 16-14 victory over PetroGazz to boost its semifinals bid on Tuesday in the Premier Volleyball League Invitational Conference at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The High Speed Hitters blew a huge six-point lead in the fifth set but pounced on the Angels’ mishits in the nerve-wracking finish, including a MJ Phillips service error that shattered the 14-all count and a costly blunder that enabled the former to escape with the win.

Serving for the match, Heather Guino-o clinched the game-winner for PLDT when the Angels misjudged the flight of the ball, which sailed long but dropped just right on the baseline.

Julianne Samonte led the High Speed Hitters with 18 points while Mika Reyes dominated with eight blocks en route to 13 points. Toni Basas also had 13 points, all but one from kills.
