MANILA – Motolite Power Builders nailed its third straight win in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference after a 25-21, 25-23, 25-14 sweep over PacificTown Army Lady Troopers at the San Juan Arena.
Myla Pablo tallied 14 points despite playing only in the first two sets on Saturday night, while Diana Carlos had double-double 14 points and 10 rebounds as the Power Builders improved to 10-5 win-loss record.
Maria Lina Molde finished with 10 points while Bern Flora and Marist Layug combined for 10 markers for Motolite, which got 23 free points off the Lady Troopers’ errors.
“Today’s victory was good. It makes us happy. As I said before it’s not about being in the Final Four, it’s about finishing in what position. That’s what we are thinking, that’s what we are looking to work towards,” said Motolite coach Godfrey Okumu.
The Power Builders got a good challenge from the already eliminated Lady Troopers in the first two sets before completely crushing their opposition in the third frame.
Carlos and Molde spearheaded the huge Power Builders in the third set as they cruised to a 20-9 and moved at match point, 24-10.
The Lady Troopers saved four match points before Molde ended the match with a powerful hit.
