MANILA—Petro Gazz pulled off a dominant 25-21, 25-10, 25-13 victory over cellar-dweller Army Lady Troopers to bolster its semifinal bid in the 2023 Premier Volleyball League All Filipino Conference on Saturday night at the FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan City.

MarJana Phillips led the assault with 16 points including nine on attacks, four blocks, and three aces, while Aiza Maizo-Pontillas put in a 10-point output for the Angels, which improved to 4-2 with the win.

Remy Palma added nine points while Jonah Sabete and Gretchel Soltones ended up with six markers apiece for the Angels, which came from a three-set stunner over F2 Logistics Cargo Movers last Thursday.

So overpowering were the Angels that they produced 41 spikes against the Lady Troopers’ 19 and came away with 10 kill blocks, six more than their opponents. The Angels also have eight service aces as to their foe’s three.

“I’m happy because what I asked my players was to be consistent and committed sa mga ginagawa namin,” said Petro Gazz coach Oliver Almadro. “Hoping that the consistency, the intensity, and the level of play will be there. If we do this everyday, I’ll be happy at sana tumaas pa ng tumaas every day."

“May tendencies pa rin kami na maging doubtful, Nag-o-overthink pa sila but I’m just asking them to keep on talking to just free up the thoughts nab aka magkamali pa. Nagma-manifest naman at nakakabawi. We just have to start it right and end it right,” he added.

Honey Royse Tubino tallied seven points, while Jeanette Villareal and Nerissa Bautista had six and five points, respectively, for the Lady Troopers, which remained winless in six games.
