(UPDATED) PLDT squeezed out a 4-set win over sister team Cignal for a second victory in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Invitational Conference semifinals at Ynares Center in Antipolo on Thursday.
After dropping the first set, the High Speed Hitters took the next three for a come-from-behind 15-25, 25-13, 25-23, 25-23 win.
Dell Palomata fired 19 points on 16 attacks and 3 blocks to give PLDT the lead in the semis.
Jovie Prado, who came back from an ankle injury before the start of the conference, added 9 points and 21 digs, matching Kath Arado's output.
Cignal appeared to have been gaining momentum in the fourth set with a 17-13 lead over PLDT. But the High Speed Hitters managed to uncork a massive run that closed out the HD Spikers.
Cignal is now pressured to beat the Army Lady Troopers on Friday to bounce back in the semifinal round.
