Honey Royse Tubino and Jem Gutierrez stepped up in the absence of Jovelyn Gonzaga to lead PacificTown Army in making quick work of winless Chef’s Classics, 25-11, 25-23, 25-17, on Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The duo scored 15 points each as the Lady Troopers rebounded from a straight sets loss to Air Force last Saturday to open the second round on a high note for a 5-4 win-loss record.

Tubino had 13 kills and a pair of aces while Gutierrez got 11 kills, three kill blocks and an ace to go with seven digs for PacificTown Army, who played sans Gonzaga and head coach Kungfu Reyes as they joined the national team in Thailand for the inaugural Southeast Asian Grand Prix in Nakhon Ratchasima on Sept. 20-22.
