Tess Rountree scored 27 points to lead semifinals-bound PayMaya to a 13-25, 25-21, 25-21, 20-25, 15-9, win over BaliPure-National University in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Wednesday.

The American player finished with 25 kills and two aces for the High Flyers, who closed the preliminary round with a 5-2 win-loss record.

Jorelle Singh added 11 points, Grethcel Soltones 11, too, while Jamsine Nabor tallied 23 excellent sets against their former team, which they helped win the inaugural Open Conference championship last year.

The no. 2 seed PayMaya won its second straight match to build momentum heading into the best-of-3 semis. The High Flyers will have almost a month-long break as they wait for their semis opponent.
