PETRO Gazz guns for its fourth straight victory, while BaliPure hopes to finally score its first win when the Angels and Water Defenders clash on Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference at Arena in San Juan.
Focus will again be on Janisa Johnson of the US and Wilma Salas of Cuba, who lead the league in scoring, as the Angels and Water Defenders (0-2) clash at 3 p.m.
American import Janisa Johnson will be facing her ex-team BaliPure, which was composed of National University players last year.
The Water Defenders, Led by Slovenian import Alexandra Vajdova and Montenegrin reinforcement Danijela Dzakovic, try to improve their game after four-set losses to Pacifictown-Army and BanKo, where they committed 40 and 30 errors, respectively.
BanKo tries to bounce back as it faces winless Motolite in the 5 p.m. match.
The Perlas Spikers, with a 1-2 win-loss card, bannered by imports Kia Bright and Yasemin Yildirim suffered a four-set loss to Creamline and look to rise as they face a Motolite team that has suffered two losses and are without missing one import and their top local.
“I think BanKo's a good team. They have good imports. I think they also got off a rocky start in the conference but they are getting better every game,” said Motolite coach Air Padda. “It's going to be a tough match-up because we only have one import playing.”
Channon Thompson will lead the way after Edina Selimovic was ruled out for at least a week, while Myla Pablo has yet to be cleared from a back injury.
