VNS seeks crucial win vs Army

VNS looks to strengthen its semis chances as it takes on Philippine Army while PGJC-Navy and National University-Archipelago Builders collide in a duel of ousted teams in the SpikersTurf Open Conference at the Paco Arena today.

The Griffins (5-3) and the Iloilo Spikers (6-2) are the only remaining squads still in the semis hunt with the former eyeing to bolster its bid against the also-rank Troopers (3-6) at 3 p.m.

VNS is coming off a clutch 25-17, 25-17, 29-27 victory over Sta. Rosa last Sunday with middle blocker Russel Frondo leading their charge with 13 points, including six huge blocks.

"Super happy. Syempre sabi ko nga sa kanila one game at a time lang tayo saka we still have two more remaining games. Nakuha namin yung goal namin ngayon na manalo but we will need to contonue to practice," said Griffins assistant coach John De Guzman.

He added that he's happy to see VNS enjoy the games and he's looking forward to getting another crucial win against the Troopers.

"We need to practice to get that goal, para makuha namin yung remaining games so super happy ako sa performance and happy din ako kasi masaya silang nag-lalaro," he added.

Meanwhile, the Sealions (3-5) and the Volley Builders (1-7) tange at 5:30 p.m.
