BanKo cashed in on Nicole Tiamzon’s heroics in the fifth set to snap a four-game slide to complete a come-from-behind 18-25, 18-25, 25-19, 25-22, 15-11, win over PayMaya Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The former University of the Philippines hitter Tiamzon scored five of her 11 points in the deciding frame to deliver the Perlas Spikers second win in six games.

American import Kia Bright finished with 25 points anchored on 23 attacks and two kill blocks while Thai reinforcement Jutarat Montripila had 24 markers including 22 off kills for BanKo, which survived High Flyer American import Tess Rountree’s 39-point explosion.
