MANILA, Philippines—Surprise leader Perpetual Help tries to sweep Group B when it takes on Bacolod’s University of St. La Salle on Tuesday in the Shakey’s V-League Season 8 First Conference at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Gametime is 2 p.m. with the Lady Altas, who are enjoying their best start in the tournament, gunning for a fourth consecutive victory.

Adamson tries to close in on a quarterfinal berth when it collides with National U at 4.
The Lady Stingers are already assured of a quarterfinal berth but coach Roger Banzuela believes his team has more to show in the tournament.

“We’re hoping to prove that we deserve to be playing in the V-League,” said Banzuela, who has steered St. La Salle to several Prisaa titles and national intercollegiate crowns.

St. La Salle, led by former national youth player Patty Orendain and Kay Aplasca, will carry the momentum of its straight-set win over National U two weeks ago.

After a forgettable stint in the NCAA, where they were forced to forfeit several wins for violating league rules, the Lady Altas are slowly but surely finding redemption in the V-League.

Their unbeaten start was aided by a forfeiture victory over powerhouse Adamson, which likewise violated V-League rules on guest players. Perpetual Help is coming off a 25-18, 25-19, 25-19 victory over St. Benilde last week.

The Lady Falcons will be playing for the first time since the controversial loss to the Lady Altas. They were actually winning the match when it fielded a third guest player.
