By Ric Arlos

PASAY--Myla Pablo provided the spark in the deciding fifth set as Philips pulled off a 25-18, 24-26, 25-21, 15-25, 15-13 upset against Foton in a PLDT Home Ultera-Philippine SuperLiga All-Filipino Conference match at the Cuneta Astrodome on Saturday.

Pablo scored crucial hits early into Set 5, and a great defensive effort sealed the Lady Slammers' win as they forced Patty Orendain to an error and Hazel Mea scored a block against Pam Lastimosa for the match point.

Pablo led Philips with 21 points, all on spikes, while Michelle Gumabao added 16.

Nicole Tiamzon finished with 21 points for Foton, which had a scare in the second set as Dzi Gervacio injured her knee.
