Meanwhile, American star Lindsay Stalzer – who helped the Blaze Spikers win the crown last year against the Cargo Movers – finished with 21 points against her former squad.

Both coming off victories, the Blaze Spikers hunt for their 11th straight win while the second-seed Cargo Movers look to keep rising PLDT Power Hitters at bay as they eye a ninth victory.

Last Tuesday, Bell produced 19 points against PLDT to spearhead the defending champs to a 25-18, 25-21, 25-14 triumph.

A Stalzer-less F2, on the other hand, relied on Becky Perry and Ara Galang who scored 14 points each to earn a 25-21, 25-19, 25-19 victory Thursday against lowly Sta. Lucia.

At 4 p.m., meanwhile, the Lady Realtors face the Generika-Ayala Lifesavers.
