PetroGazz is on the right track for a second straight Finals appearance in a possible rematch with a familiar foe.

The Angels barely broke a sweat as they annihilated BanKo, 25-22, 25-15, 25-20, Saturday to draw first blood in the best-of-three Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference semifinals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Jonah Sabete and Jovielyn Prado did most of the damage on offense for PetroGazz, which could be looking at back-to-back championship showdown with defending champion and unbeaten Creamline, which the Angels brought down in the Reinforced Conference Finals a few months back.

Creamline won against Motolite in four sets in the other semis paring. Game 2 of the Final Four is on Sunday.

Sabete had 12 points while Prado posted 10 markers as the two accounted for 18 of the Angels’ 41 attack points. Cherry Nunag and Jeanette Panaga added eight markers each for PetroGazz.
