    THE Philippine Super Liga has revised its schedule to allow several players to see action in the second match of the V-League Finals on Sunday.

    Several players led by Generika-Army’s Rachel Anne Daquis and Jovelyn Gonzaga are still lined up with V-League teams and the original PSL Sunday schedule was adjusted as it coincided with the V-League final.

    Generika-Army was originally scheduled to play against RC Cola at 5 p.m. in the PSL at the Astrodome, but the league gave the Troopers a day off. Instead, it will be Cignal facing off with RC Cola.

    That means Daquis and Gonzaga will be free to play for Far Eastern University in Game Two of the V-League finals against National University set at 2:45 p.m. at The Arena in San Juan.

    Back-to-back V-League First Conference MVP Dindin Santiago of National University is also seeing action in the Superliga, but her team Petron is not scheduled to play on Sunday.

    But the 3 p.m. game pitting Cagayan against PLDT was unchanged, which could also affect the V-League match.

    Veteran setter Rubie de Leon, Finals MVP last year with NU, is also suiting up for PLDT. She could not be reached for comment as of posting time.

    "Yes, nag-give way ang PSL," PSL commissioner Doc Ian Laurel told Spin.ph, "so that the schedules won't clash and no games will be affected."

    "It's our way of working together with other leagues."

    Former Finals MVP Daquis and former league MVP Gonzaga were tapped by FEU as guest players before the quarterfinals and the Lady Tamaraws have since been playing superbly.

    The Lady Tamaraws have lost just once — a five-setter in the semifinals — since acquiring the national team mainstays and are now just one win away from claiming their first-ever V-League title.

    “Thank God at ok na ang schedule, naayos na,” said FEU coach Shaq delos Santos when informed of the schedule change.
