Motolite got into some scary moments in the last two sets but was able to pull through to eke out a 25-19, 25-23, 25-22, win over listless Chef’s Classics on Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Tots Carlos continued to pour in the needed points with veteran hitter Myla Pablo, who saw minutes for the first time after missing three games because of a foot injury, still not in tip-top shape. The University of the Philippines standout uncorked 26 points anchored on 23 attacks, two kill blocks and an ace for Motolite’s seventh win in 10 games.

“A win is a win but in the last two sets we were kind of vulnerable, we let them lead and the we start fighting from behind,” said Motolite coach Godfrey Okumu, who admitted that he had to field Pablo as a substitute in the second and third sets not only to give her a feel of the court but to also pull the team together with the Lady Red Spikers threatening to upset.
