    CAGAYAN Valley tries to cap a perfect season when it goes for the Shakey’s V-League Season 10 Open Conference title against Smart-Maynilad Sunday at The Arena in San Juan.

    The Lady Rising Suns go for the historic feat at 4 p.m. in Game 2 of their best-of-three title series with the Net Spikers.

    No team in V-League history since its inception in 2004 has won a championship with an immaculate record.

    And given the chance to achieve the rare feat, the Lady Rising Suns vow to go for it and end the title series.

     “We have a chance to write history on Sunday, so we might as well go for it,” said Cagayan Valley coach Nes Pamilar.

    “Kailangan mas lalo pa mag-trabaho. Hindi kami puweded mag-pahinga,” he added.

    The Lady Rising Suns stretched their amazing win to 15 Tuesday following a thrilling 26-24, 25-11, 23-25, 11-25, 15-12 victory in Game 1 of the Finals.

    The embattled Smart-Maynilad meanwhile, expects star player Alyssa Valdez to suit up despite hurting her right shoulder in the series opener following a collision with teammate Maru Banaticla.

    The Net Spikers also hope National University stalwart and First Conference Most Valuable Player Din-Din Santiago will be playing for the team before anchoring the Lady Bulldogs’ bid in the UniGames in Bacolod set this week.

    Game 2 of the series will be aired live over GMA News TV Channel 11, according to the organizing Sports Vision.

    Game 3 if necessary is set on Oct. 27.

    Meanwhile, Philippine Army also hopes to end its own best-of-three series against Philippine Air Force in the battle for third when the two teams tangle anew in the first game at 2 p.m.
