    AIR Force defeated Power Smashers, 25-22, 26-24, 18-25, 17-25, 15-13, to post its third straight win and secure at least a playoff for a semifinal spot in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference on Sunday at The Arena in San Juan.

    Mary Ann Pantino finished with 14 points for the Lady Jet Spikers, who moved to third spot with a 4-1 win-loss record and eliminated the Power Smashers (1-5).

    Iari Yongco and skipper Joy Cases scored 12 apiece, while Jocemer Tapic had 10 points, including the match-winning block on Jovelyn Prado.

    “Sobrang importante sa amin ang panalong ito kasi naghahabol kami,” said Air Force coach Jasper Jimenez. “Dahan dahan lang, last game namin sa Pocari at saka Adamson so sana maka-isa pa para ma-sure kami sa top four.”

    “‘Yung third at saka fourth nawalan kami ng first ball tapos hindi namin mapigil ‘yung Prado, hindi ma-organize ang blocking namin,” he said.

    “‘Yung Prado kapag nasa harap hindi namin ma-stop, ‘yun ang naging problema namin kahit pinapa-double block ko talagang lumulusot (ang palo niya) eh,” he added.

    Prado finished with 22 points for the Power Smashers, while Regine Arocha had 16 and Andrea Marzan contributed 10.
