Motolite bared its teeth in the closing stretch of the fifth set to breathe new life to its semifinals bid after snapping PetroGazz’s eight-game winning streak with a 22-25, 25-13, 25-16, 16-25, 15-11, decision on Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Down, 5-7, in the fifth, Tots Carlos, Isa Molde and Bern Flora connived in a decisive run that gave Motolite a three-point cushion that kept the Angels at bay to improve to 8-5 win-loss record and snap a two-game slide.

Carlos dropped 20 points with 17 coming off kills including the game-clinching hit that put PetroGazz’s winning run to a screeching halt. The University of the Philippines standout also had three kill blocks and spiked her stats with 21 digs and 15 excellent receptions.
