TWICE denied of a spot in the Final Four, PetroGazz tries again today but the Angels will have to hurdle an Air Force squad also in dire need of a win to fuel its own semis drive, guaranteeing a fierce duel in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference at The Arena in San Juan.
The Angels looked headed to a trouble-free ride to the semis by racking up eight straight victories for a 9-2 card last week but the 10th win that would assure their stint in the next round proved elusive as the Reinforced Conference champions dropped their last two games to Motolite and Creamline, enabling PacificTown-Army and Air Force to stay in the hunt for a playoff for the last Final Four seat.
That makes the Angels-Jet Spikers face-off at 6 p.m. worth watching with the former confident of duplicating their straight-sets romp in the first round last Sept. 1.
Creamline tries to move closer to a rare conference sweep as it guns for win No. 14 against PacificTown-Army at 4 p.m.
