PayMaya needed to hang tough in the closing stretch of the first two sets before cruising in the third to sweep Petro Gazz, 27-25, 25-23, 25-17, Saturday and secure the last outright semifinals seat in Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The High Flyers bounced back from a previous setback and improved their record to 4-2 to join league-leading Creamline (5-1) in the Final Four. With the win, PayMaya already secured a superior quotient in case of a tie at second spot after the prelims.

American Tess Rountree paced the High Flyers with 19 points, all from attacks, while Grethcel Soltones finally woke up from a scoring slump to chip in 12 markers.
