PVL Game Highlights: PLDT breezes past Akari to share top spot

The PLDT High Speed Hitters notched their fourth consecutive win in a commanding fashion, as they rolled past the Akari Chargers with a straight sets victory (25-17, 25-20, 25-19) in the 2024 PVL All-Filipino Conference held at the PhilSports Arena.

The High Speed Hitters’ victory was a clear indication of their strong form, moving to a tie atop the standings with a 6-1 record alongside the Creamline Cool Smashers.

Player of the Game Majoy Baron powered PLDT's offense and defense, racking up 13 points that included eight attacks, a pair of blocks, and three aces.

Her performance, consistent with her previous displays, affirmed her role as a vital cog in the High Speed Hitters’ well-oiled machine.

PLDT’s victory was accentuated by the absence of Akari’s Ced Domingo, who was sidelined due to right knee pain. Her absence was a blow to the Chargers, who struggled to find a rhythm against the formidable High Speed Hitters.
