PETRON arranged a Finals showdown with defending champion F2 Logistics after cruising past Foton, 25-21, 22-25, 25-9, 25-16 in the Philippine Super Liga All Filipino Conference on Thursday at The Arena in San Juan.
Far Eastern University ace Bernadeth Pons led the way for the Blaze Spikers with 20 points, while Aiza Maizo-Pontillas added 14 and Mika Reyes chipped in 11.
The former two-time champion last won a title in the 2015 edition before it had a major revamp at the start of the season with a goal to reclaim lost glory.
“Andito na kami (Sa Finals), mas pagbubutihan namin,” said Petron coach Shaq delos Santos, whose wards broke loose from a 13-all contest in the fourth set all the way to win the match.
The Blaze Spikers will face the defending champion Cargo Movers in a best-of-three Finals starting Tuesday.
“Sorbang bakbakan ‘to, syempre defending champion sila and knowing them ang tagal nang magkakasama, solid na team ‘yan,” said delos Santos.
“Pero sa amin syempre challenge and I’m sure magiging maganda ang laban,” he added.
Jaja Santiago was the lone bright spot for Foton with 16 points.
The Tornadoes will face Cignal for the battle for third.
