CHOCO Mucho boosted its semifinal chances after beating PLDT in a five-set thriller, 25-22, 25-17, 22-25, 10-25, in the 2022 Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Invitational Conference on Thursday at FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan.
Kat Tolentino exploded for 27 points off 24 attacks, two blocks, an ace and 22 digs in her return from a layoff as the Flying Titans moved up to fifth place on a 2-3 (win-loss) card with a game left to enhance its semifinal bid.
'We wanted it more'
"Our team has come a long way. I think we really wanted it more in the end that's why we got that win," said Tolentino, who missed back-to-back games after being placed under the league's health protocols.
PLDT slipped to 3-2.
Four High Speed Hitters finished in double figures in a losing effort, led by Toni Basas and Jules Samonte with 17 points each.
