    LINGAYEN - Pangasinense spikers Melanie Carrera and Cassandra Lleda bounced back from a big loss on Thursday with a pair of wins in the 2012 Petron Ladies’ Beach Volleyball Battle of Champions.

    The duo posted a 24-22 win over La Salle-Dasmarinas standouts Iari Yongco and Giselle Bembo, then followed it with 21-14 crushing of Mapua babes Bianca Reyes and Mabelle Lau at the wind-swept, beach-front sand court of the capitol grounds to seal their place in the semifinals.

    Carrera and Lleda, playing under the Pangasinan-2 banner, clinched a semifinal seat after finishing the elimination round with a 3-1 record in Group A.

    The two joined Rizal Technological University bets Jessa Aranda and rookie teammate Jonafer San Pedro in the semifinals. The RTU pair swept its four-game assignment in the same bracket.

    Carrera and Lleda will meet their provincemates, Pangasinan-1’s Jennifer Manzano and new partner Cindy Benitez in an all-Pangasinense semifinal encounter.

    The RTU bets will meet in the other semis duel University of the East-1’s Kryssel Cueva and last year’s Battle of Champions winner Francislyn Cais, who shrugged off a 13-21 setback to Manzano with two big wins to clinch the second Group B semis berth with their 3-1 slate.
