    CIGNAL secured the top seed in Pool A heading into the quarterfinals of the 2022 Premier Volleyball League Open Conference after turning back Black Mamba-Army, 25-20, 20-25, 25-17, 25-19, on Thursday.

    Rachel Anne Daquis led the way with her 13 points, 18 excellent digs, and 12 excellent receptions as the HD Spikers secured their fourth straight win in the preliminary phase at the Paco Arena in Manila.

    Meneses shows way

    Ria Meneses added Cignal with 15 markers from 12 attacks, two blocks, and one ace, Ces Molina came off the bench and pumped all of her 12 points from hits, and Roselyn Doria got 10 in the win.

    Molina's entry in the third set righted the ship for the HD Spikers after the Lady Troppers pulled even at one set apiece, with the outside hitter from San Beda taking over and helping Cignal secure the top spot in the group.
