Cignal outwitted F2 Logistics in a frenetic fourth set endgame as it carved out a huge 25-21, 20-25, 25-14, 25-20 victory to assure itself of at least a tie for the fourth and last semis berth in the 2022 PVL Reinforced Conference, Saturday at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.
A victory by the HD Spikers will complete the semis cast but a reversal coupled with the Cargo Movers win over the Angels would force a three-way tie for fourth.
Ties will be broken via points system.
Angeli Araneta tricked the Cargo Movers' defense with a clever drop shot to dash whatever hopes F2 Logistics had had coming off a huddle, clinching the crucial victory for the HD Spikers, who blew a four-point lead midway in the set but recovered in time to pull off the win aided by a couple of F2 miscues down the stretch.
A Lindsay Stalzer kill put F2 Logistics within, 20-22, but Elaine Kasilag’s off-time tip that came short stymied their charge, giving Cignal a three-point cushion and a costly miscommunication by the Cargo Movers in the ensuing play put the HD Spikers at match point.
