BanKo goes for the series clincher against PacificTown Army on Saturday, hoping to claim its third straight bronze-medal finish in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference.

Game time is at 2 p.m. at FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The match will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.

The Perlas Spikers showed grit in a thrilling 25-27, 10-25, 27-25, 26-24, 16-14, come-from-behind win in Game 1 on Wednesday.

BanKo must win on Saturday to formally bag the podium spot and avoid falling into a precarious Game 3 or a possible tiebreak in case of a tied series.

If the Perlas Spikers lose to the Lady Troopers and the title series between Creamline and PetroGazz end in 2 matches, PacificTown Army can steal third place if it wins in 3 or 4 sets.

The Lady Troopers can also bag the bronze if ever they win via five sets, depending on the points they earned following the FIVB ruling on tiebreaks.
