BanKo Perlas Set to Keep the Ball Rolling in Vietnam, PVL Open Conference

Following their successful stint in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Reinforced Conference, the BanKo Perlas Spikers ride on the momentum as they prepare for the back-to-back competitions in PVL Season 2 Open Conference on September 22 and the upcoming Vin Lonh tournament in Vietnam on September 28 to October 3, 2018. The BanKo Perlas Spikers will face three Vietnamese teams and a squad from Thailand in the prestigious Vietnam tournament. The team’s participation in the conference is a strategic move to train them for the different leagues, particularly the PVL Open Conference. “Banko Perlas Spikers is a fairly new team, as the girls have been playing together for just two years. Their exposure to Vin Lonh Volleyball tournament is a great opportunity for the ladies to further hone their skills, individually and as a squad,” shared Charo Soriano, Team Manager of BanKo Perlas. “While this is an overseas competition and the teams that we will be up against are considered giants, at the end of the day, we will focus on the learning and experiences. More than winning, the team is concentrated on giving a good fight every game,” Soriano added. The ladies of BanKo Perlas Spikers gave a breakthrough performance in the PVL Reinforced Conference earlier this year; with an unbeaten streak in the quarterfinals round that earned them a spot in the Final Four. This incredible feat has fortified the trust and support of their fans. Before flying off to Vietnam, the team will face Iriga-Navy and PetroGazz at the Flying V Centre, San Juan City on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. The team will return on October 6 to continue playing against the PVL teams. When asked how their supporters come into play in the team’s performance, Soriano highlighted that without their fans rallying behind the team, it will not be possible to get where they are. She also shared that their supporters are the source of their strength and in return, the squad is committed to continuously inspire and reach out to them. The team’s mindset to put their supporters first was emphasized further through their partnership with BPI Direct BanKo (BanKo), the microfinance subsidiary of Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI). Sponsoring a sports team is almost unheard of from the banking industry. BanKo, however, found the perfect marriage with the PVL third placer, who constantly get in touch with the grassroots to promote the sport. “We are a happy partner of the Banko Perlas Spikers. Their skills are undeniable, but what sets them apart is their heart to reach out to fans nationwide, even to those who barely have access to their matches. This is well aligned with BanKo’s vision to make financial services more accessible to everyone,” stated BanKo president Jerome Minglana. “As they compete on Vietnamese courts representing our country, regardless of the outcome, it will only ignite and empower the team's loyal supporters and boost the local Volleyball further.  BanKo is equally excited to witness this exciting journey unfold,” Minglana concluded.  .....»»

PVL: Petro Gazz ignites quarters streak at expense of BaliPure

Petro Gazz is nothing but confident that it is doing better and better just as the competition gets hotter and hotter in the quarterfinals of the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference Season 2. It’s hard to argue with the Angels following a straight sets shellacking of BaliPure-National University, 25-23, 25-18, and 25-14 on Saturday at the Filoil Flying Centre. “Good yung chances ng team. Hopefully, magtuloy-tuloy,” head coach Jerry Yee told reporters after his girls won for the second time in a row following a loss to open the round robin quarterfinals. “Sa umpisa, ‘di pa magkakakilala e, pero ngayon, unti-unti, nagkakakilala na.” Indeed, Petro Gazz counted four players who contributed at least seven points led by Ukranian reinforcement Anastasiia Trach who had 17 points. Olena Lymareva-Flink, another Ukranian, and Cherry Nunag contributed eight points each and Paneng Mercado also chipped in seven markers. After handling the Water Defenders easy in the first two sets, the Angels found themselves chasing down a 4-7 deficit in the third. The balanced attack returned for them following the first technical timeout in the set, however, and they uncorked an 18-4 burst that put them up, all of a sudden, 22-11. That run only took the fight out of young BaliPure-NU and the Angels soared to a share of second in the standings at 2-1. Yee and his girls try for a third straight win when they take on Iriga-Navy next. For the Water Defenders, Janisa Johnson led the way with 14 points points. She was their lone player in double-digits as fellow import Alexis Matthews only had six markers to her name. Their return to the win column would have to come at the expense of defending champion Pocari Sweat-Philippine Air Force. Alongside Petro Gazz and BaliPure-NU, disputing the last two spots in the semifinals are BanKo-Perlas, Iriga-Navy, Pocari Sweat-Air Force, and Tacloban The top two finishers in the round robin quarterfinals will move on to the next round. Already there are Creamline and PayMaya who secured the top spots in the Final Four after their respective impressive runs in the preliminary round. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Lady Warriors rise to top spot in quarters

Pocari Sweat-Philippine Air Force took another step forward in making sure its title defense goes through at least the semifinals of the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference. Dropping the first set before regrouping and resoundingly taking the next three, the Lady Warriors sank Iriga-Navy, 23-25, 25-18, 25-20, and 25-22, on Wednesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Reinforcements Maddie Palmer and Ari Love showed the way with 19 and 18 points, respectively. Skipper Myla Pablo was also right there with them with 14 markers to her name. The defending champions took time to get going, though, and allowed Macy Ubben and the Lady Oragons to claim the first frame. “Parang diesel (kami). Yun nga, siguro, kailangan muna nilang masaktan siguro,” head coach Jasper Jimenez shared post-game. From that point, Love took charge and led Pocari Sweat-Air Force to an 8-5 start in the second set that blew up to a lead of as much as eight, 19-11. Both the lead and the momentum would stay with the Lady Warriors for the remainder of the match. Pablo and company are now 2-0 in the round robin quarterfinals – putting them closer and closer to the semifinals. “We need two more wins. Siguro, kung makadalawang panalo pa kami, that’s it, semifinals na,” Jimenez said. Disputing the last two seats in the semifinals along with Pocari-Sweat-Air Force and Iriga-Navy are BaliPure, BanKo-Perlas, Petro Gazz, and Tacloban. “Sana, magtuloy-tuloy ‘tong ganitong performance namin,” Jimenez also remarked. The Lady Oragons fell to 0-2 in the quarterfinals even after a 27-point performance from Ubben. Lauren Whyte also added 18 markers. The top two finishers in the round robin quarterfinals will move on to the next round. Already there are Creamline and PayMaya who secured the top spots in the Final Four after their respective impressive runs in the preliminary round. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Angels out to snatch second straight win

After arresting a three-game slide last week, a well-rested Petro Gazz crew marches into action Saturday against skidding Iriga-Navy in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Angels barged in the win column a week ago at the expense of BanKo Perlas, 15-25, 18-25, 25-18, 25-20, 15-9. Petro Gazz, which holds a 1-3 win-loss card, is now looking to start a winning run in the scheduled 2:00 p.m. encounter with the Lady Oragons, who are on a two-game slide. The match will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166 and via livestream. The Angels will pin their hopes on Ukrainian import Anastasiia Trach, who scored 27 points the last time out, as well as new import Olena Lymareva-Flink, locals Cherry Nunag, Wensh Tiu, Ranya Musa and Paneng Mercado. Iriga-Navy is coming off a 8-25, 25-23, 18-25, 16-25, loss at the hands of defending champion Pocari Sweat-Air Force last Wednesday to slide to 1-2 slate. Americans Macy Ubben and Lauren Whyte are playing consistently for the Lady Oragons but will need the help of the locals to avoid falling further down South.   ---         Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
