    Dindin Santiago-Manabat and Arriane Layug added eight and seven markers, respectively.

    “Definitely, I am happy, iba pa rin ang panalo. However, ang dami pa rin talaga naming aayusin kasi doon kami nag relax, learning experience namin from our previous match but that's done already,” said Chery Tiggo head coach Aaron Velez. “We just have to take it as a learning experience and we just have to move forward given na may tuloy tuloy kaming laro sa mga susunod na araw.”

    The Crossovers needed to fight back from a 21-23 third set deficit as Layug and Santiago tied the set. Adorador’s clutch block brought the team at match point, 24-23, before Jho Maraguinot committed a crucial attack error.
