Defending champion Petron Blaze Spikers and the Shopinas Lady Clickers forged a showdown for the title after separate semifinal victories in the 2015 Philippine SuperLiga All Filipino Conference Monday at Cuneta Astrodome.

Petron made quick work of the Philip Gold Lady Slammers for a 25-14, 25-23, 25-18 win while Shopinas carved out a hard-fought 22-25, 25-23, 25-19, 21-25, 17-15 triumph over the Foton Tornadoes.

Abi Marano piled up 13 points while Rachel Anne Daquis added 12 to lead the Blaze Spikers past the Lady Slammers who will go into the finals still unbeaten after topping the elimination round with a perfect 10-0 slate.

Meanwhile, Stephanie Mercado fired 24 points while Cha Cruz chipped in 21 for the Lady Clickers who came in second just behind Petron in the elimination round with a 6-4 record.
