Philippine Air Force kept its flickering semifinals hopes alive after completing an elimination round sweep of also-ran ChocoMucho, 20-25, 25-18, 29-27, 26-24, Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Bouncing back from a stinging five-set loss to BaliPure, the Lady Jet Spikers improved to 6-7 win-loss record to remain in contention for a Final Four berth while sending Flying Titans reeling to their third straight defeat.

Air Force banked on the veteran duo of Dell Palomata and Joy Cases to recover from a first set setback and duplicate its first round win over ChocoMucho, who came in the match looking to spoil the Lady Jet Spikers’ semis bid after getting booted out from the race following Motolite’s ninth win earlier.
