PVL: Chery Tiggo, Petro Gazz take crucial wins vs. PLDT, Cignal as semis race intensifies

Premier Volleyball League (PVL): Chery Tiggo Crossovers

Chery Tiggo and Petro Gazz secured crucial victories on Tuesday as the race to the semifinals heats up in the 2024 PVL All-Filipino Conference at the PhilSports Arena.

The Crossovers swept higher-ranked PLDT, 25-22, 25-16, 25-20, while the Angels eked out a similar straight sets triumph against Cignal, 25-13, 25-18, 25-17.

With the wins, Chery Tiggo and Petro Gazz have both improved to 7-2 and forged a four-way tie at the second spot alongside Creamline and PLDT. Choco Mucho remained at the top spot with an 8-1 slate.

Jonah Sabete starred for Petro Gazz, pouring in a double-double outing of 16 points anchored on 13 attacks, two blocks, and one ace on top of 12 digs while Brooke Van Sickle chipped in 13 markers.

No player from Cignal reached the double digit mark with Vanie Gandler and Ces Molina both producing eight markers.

In the second game, Chery Tiggo extended its winning streak to five since beating defending champion Creamline last March 16 in Sta. Rosa.

The sister act of Eya and EJ Laure took charge with the former hammering 12 points built on nine attacks and three blocks while the latter chimed in with 10 markers and six receptions.

The wins by Chery Tiggo and Petro Gazz proved crucial as only the top four teams will advance to the semifinals, where they will once again figure in a single round robin. The top two teams from there will move on to the championship round while the third and fourth club will battle for bronze.
