Philippine Air Force schooled young ChocoMucho on resiliency as the Lady Jet Spikers came back from a 1-2 match deficit to pull off a 26-24, 14-25, 21-25, 25-22, 15-7, escape Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Banking on their composure and veteran smarts, Air Force plucked its second straight win at the expense of the struggling Flying Titans and spoiled ChocoMucho top hitter Kat Tolentino’s 30-point outing.

Dell Palomata paced Air Force with 18 points off 14 attacks and four kill blocks, Angel Antipuesto had 16 while Jozza Cabalsa scored 11 including four in the fifth set in just three sets of action off the bench. 

The Jet Spikers kept a tight hold of the momentum they built in the fourth set when they came back from a 12-19 deficit to force a decider and eventually win their second game in seven matches to tie their skidding victims.
