MANILA, Philippines - After a pair of straight-set victories, PLDT Home Telpad guns for a third straight against the team which swept its way to last year's championship as action in the Shakey’s V-League Season II Open Conference resumes at The Arena in San Juan today.

No less than the solo lead awaits the Power Attackers in their clash with the Cagayan Rising Suns, who will be as much tested as their rivals in the keenly awaited 4 p.m. duel between two of the league’s fancied squads.

Cagayan posted a record 16-game sweep to nail the crown in the mid-season conference of the league sponsored by Shakey’s last year but the Rising Suns are hard-pressed to duplicate the feat with a slew of powerhouse teams out to foil their back-to-back title bid.

Army matched newcomer PLDT Home Telpad’s big 2-0 start with victories over UP and Air Force but the Power Attackers have the chance to seize the solo lead with a victory over the Rising Suns.
