    Jorelle Singh scored 16 as the Power Hitters earned their second straight win, while sending the Water Defenders to their fifth consecutive loss.

    Chin-chin Basas had seven points, while Urdas also scored seven, playing in the last two sets, as PLDT improved to its win-loss record to 2-6 for a share of seventh place with BaliPure.

      “Sabi ko sa kanila una 'wag nating laruin yung laro ng BaliPure, kasi yung mga first two sets lamang kami malalayo tapos nung third set nabaliktad, hindi puwedeng bababa kayo dapat tatlong 25 points para manalo,” said PLDT coach Roger Gorayeb.

      Gorayeb and the Power Hitters will cap their campaign against Cignal (1-6) on Friday.

      “Kailangan talaga namin para bumalik yung confidence nila saka maganda para sa isang bagong form na team yung nagpapanalo kami ng ganito,” he said.

      Nobody from BaliPure scored in double figures, with Graze Bombita scoring nine points, while Gen Casugod and Gyra Barroga added seven apiece.

      The also-ran Water Defenders wrap up their stint against the Perlas Spikers on Friday.
