MANILA, Philippines – The PacificTown Army Lady Troopers took care of business against BanKo Perlas in four sets, 25-23, 25-23, 17-25, 25-20, in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference on Wednesday.

In a rematch of last conference's Battle for Third, Army once again emerged victorious against the Perlas Spikers.

Young gun Jem Guiterrez and Honey Royse Tubino led the way for the veteran-laden Lady Troopers.

The Perlas Spikers had a chance to steal both the first and second set but the Lady Troopers were able to hold off their comebacks.

In the third set, BanKo came out strong, posting an 8-4 lead early. By the middle of the set, they had doubled up on the Lady Troopers, 16-8.

Despite a run from PacificTown to try and get back into the set, BanKo was able to force send the match to a fourth set.

Nicole Tiamzon and Kathy Bersola paced the Perlas Spikers in the loss.

Army begins their Open Conference campaign with a win for a 1-0 start while BanKo now sports an even 1-1 slate.

The Lady Troopers will hope to make it two in a row when they face newcomers Choco Mucho on Wednesday.
