MALOLOS, Bulacan --- BanKo’s experience, composure, and veteran smarts proved to be too much for Ateneo-Motolite to handle.

Despite playing under constant pressure from the youthful Lady Eagles backed by a loud partisan crowd that trooped the Malolos Sports and Convention Center, the Perlas Spikers were unfazed as they halted the Lady Eagles’ four-game rampage with a cold-blooded, 26-24, 25-22, 25-16, sweep Sunday to wrest the hold of the lead in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference.

Just like in their first meeting that also went BanKo’s way in dominating fashion, former Lady Eagle Dzi Gervacio delivered the hits that hurt the most as the Perlas Spikers schooled Ateneo-Motolite for their third straight win that hiked their record to 8-2.

Gervacio did most the damage with 14 points coming of 12 kills and two kill blocks while Kathy Bersola had 13 markers for BanKo. Amanda Villanueva filled the stats with nine attacks and two aces for 11 points laced with 11 digs and five excellent receptions for the Perlas Spikers.
