The Petro Gazz Angels cruised to its fourth win in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Open Conference after clobbering the Perlas Spikers in straight sets, 25-17, 25-18, 25-17, at the PCV Socio-Civic Cultural Center in Bacarra, Ilocos Norte Friday.

Gretchel Soltones tallied 17 points, five of which came from the service line, to help the Petro Gazz improve to a 4-1 win-loss slate. 

Meanwhile, Perlas suffered its third defeat for a 1-3 record.

“Maganda kahit papaano nakakakuha ng momentum na tuloy-tuloy. But then again, 'yung gusto naming makita na galaw namin, hindi pa namin nakukuha talaga. Kailangan pa namin trabahuin talaga,” Angels’ coach Arnold Laniog said. 

“Every time na nananalo, maganda 'yung result, but the game itself parang kailangan pa naming manalo para pagdating doon sa mga future games namin na makatapat namin 'yung top teams mas prepared kami.”

Petro Gazz also got a huge contribution from middle blocker Riri Meneses who recorded 10 blocks in the game en route to her 15 points. 

“Sobrang laking bagay 'yun lalo na kung ma-push talaga namin 'yung opponent na hindi makapasa sa first ball. So 'yun talaga pinapa-establish namin ng maayos 'yung block namin.” Laniog added. 

Perlas struggled to get their rhythm with Suzanne Roces scoring seven markers. Jhoana Maraguinot and Nicole Tiamzon were limited to five and two points only in the match.
