IMUS CITY – The battle for survival kicks off as F2 Logistics and Sta. Lucia Realty shoot for the third semifinal berth in a do-or-die quarterfinal collision of the Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Invitational Conference today at the Imus Center here.

Action starts at 7 p.m. with the Cargo Movers and Lady Realtors fighting for the right to face unbeaten Cignal in the knockout semifinals of this prestigious club tourney bankrolled by Isuzu, UCPB Gen and SOGO Hotel with ESPN5, Hyper HD and Aksyon TV as broadcast partners.

Prior to that, the bottom four teams begin their classification battle for the 7th to 10th places in this midseason conference that also has Senoh, Asics, Mikasa, Mueller and Grand Sport as technical sponsors.

Foton, which did not reach expectations with a 1-3 finish in Pool A, tries to ease the pain of its dismal campaign as it battles winless University of the East-Cherrylume at 2 p.m. while Cocolife clashes with University of the Philippines-United Auctioneers Inc. (UP-UAI) in the other classifications encounter at 4:15 p.m.

The winners clash for the seventh spot while the losers will be relegated to the battle for ninth place on Thursday.

The sudden-death semifinals, meanwhile, are set this Saturday with Petron and Cignal waiting for their foes.
