Cignal nails PSL semis seat

CIGNAL grabbed the second semifinal slot as it clobbered Cocolife, 25-15, 25-20, 25-16, in the second match he Belo Philippine Superliga Invitational Conference Saturday at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex.

Jovelyn Gonzaga paced the assault as she finished with 10 kills and two aces for 13 points, while Honey Royse Tubino and Rachel Anne Daquis chipped in nine markers apiece for the HD Spikers, who joined idle Petron in the next round.

With that, only one semifinal seat is up for grabs with Generika-Ayala and Foton tipped to engage in a full-blown war to conquer it.

The Lifesavers will clash with unbeaten Blaze Spikers while Foton battles winless Sta. Lucia in the final day of eliminations on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Center in San Juan.
