BACARRA, Ilocos Norte, Philippines — Chery Tiggo overpowered Black Mamba Army, 25-16, 25-16, 25-21, yesterday to move closer to advancing to the semifinals of the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Open Conference at the PCV Socio-Civic & Cultural Center here.

Sisters Dindin Santiago-Manabat and Jaja Santiago were at the forefront of the Crossovers’ attack anew as the two unloaded 18 and 15 points, respectively, to lead their team to a third straight win and sixth overall against two losses and a win away from claiming a semis seat.

They eliminated the Lady Troopers, who absorbed their fifth defeat in seven outings.

Chery Tiggo coach Aaron Velez said the team’s scouting worked.

“I’m happy again and more than thankful to the players for performing. We just have to continue scouting the other teams,” said Velez.

The Crossovers could book an outright spot to the semis if they beat the Choco Mucho Flying Titans, who were staking their perfect record of six wins against the Creamline Cool Smashers at press time, on Saturday.
