PetroGazz overwhelmed a weary PacificTown Army side, 25-15, 25-15, 25-19, on Wednesday to get back on the winning track in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Jeanette Panaga and Jovielyn Prado provided the firepower for the Angels as PetroGazz evened its record to a 2-2 win-loss slate while handing the Lady Troopers their first loss in the season-ending conference after a two-game romp.

Panaga pounded seven kills and added three kill blocks and three aces to lead the Angels, who rebounded from a straight sets loss to unbeaten defending champion Creamline last Saturday in a rematch of the Reinforced Conference Finals. Prado had 12 points and eight excellent receptions while Jonah Sabete and Paneng Mercado scored nine markers each.

PetroGazz head coach Arnold Laniog felt that they had the advantage with the core of PacificTown Army coming off a one-week local league in Cagayan De Oro while Lady Troopers top hitter Jovelyn Gonzaga came from a stint in the Philippine Superliga Finals with Cignal the night before.
