California stuns Petro Gazz in five sets for back-to-back wins

California Precision Sports ended its campaign in the maiden PNVF Champions League on a high note after surviving Petro Gazz in a five-set thriller, 18-25, 12-25, 25-22, 25-14, 15-13, on Wednesday in Lipa City, Batangas.

Jelaica Faye Gajero carried the load anew for California, carving out 22 points built on 19 attacks, two blocks, and one service ace.

Pouring 22 markers as well was Casiey Monique Dongallo while Jenalyn Umayam added seven as California finished the tournament with 2-3 win-loss card.

Down two sets and four points, California showed its fangs in the third set after unleashing three unanswered points before Petro Gazz' Ces Molina brought her team up by one with a drop, 22-19.

Jelaica Faye Gajero then sealed the set with a powerful smash from the opposite side, 25-22. California then continued pouring attacks in the fourth frame while limiting Petro Gazz to just 14 points as the Antipolo-based club brought the match into deciding fifth set.

Petro Gazz tried to mount a late comeback but an error from Grethcel Soltones gave the opposing camp the match point before Joyce Soliven went through the blockers to seal the win for California, 15-13.

The win marked California's back-to-back victories after also defeating the Baguio Lady Highlanders on Tuesday. — LA, GMA News
