PHILIPPINE Army joined Cagayan Valley in the semifinals of Shakey's V-League Season 10 Open Conference after a quick, 25-18, 25-19, 25-19, over Meralco on Tuesday at The Arena in San Juan.
Rachel Anne Daquis powered the Lady Troopers as she poured in 19 points from 16 spikes, one block and two service aces, while Jovelyn Gonzaga chipped in 11.
Army now has an 8-1 card, behind only Cagayan, which has an 8-0 record.
The Lady Troopers completed the win in just 73 minutes, but coach Rico de Guzman said it could have been better.
"Medyo nagkakagulo pa sa play nawawala 'yung teamwork," he said. "Ang gusto ko lang ituloy lang namin 'yung magandang nasimulan, ma-maintain lang 'yung magandang blocking at floor defense."
Coco Wang and Maica Morada had 14 and 13 points, respectively, for Meralco, which dropped to 3-5.
