Dzi Gervacio, Nicole Tiamzon lead Banko in four-set win over Petro Gazz

The Banko Perlas Spikers started their title campaign on a strong note as they overpowered the Petro Gazz Angels in four sets, 25-20, 11-25, 25-21, 25-18, earlier in the 2019 PVL Open Conference at the Filoil Flying V Center.

Despite their second set meltdown, the Perlas Spikers showed poise in the other sets as they showed character against last conference’s champions.

Dzi Gervacio and Nicole Tiamzon led the way for Banko, finishing with 14 and 12 points, respectively.

Meanwhile, Jovy Prado spearheaded Petro Gazz’ losing effort with 13 points atop a triple-double performance, while Jeanette Panaga added 10.

Banko looks for back-to-back wins as they face the Philippine Air Force Jet Spikers on Wednesday, while Petro Gazz guns for their first win against Balipure on Sunday.
