Creamline mercilessly held Chef’s Classic to a league-low output in the second set and went on to score a 25-12, 25-5, 25-15 romp to keep the solo lead with three wins in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan last night.
Alyssa Valdez spearheaded the Cool Smashers’ fiery offense by scoring almost at will on Zones 2 and 4 and even on Zone 6 while the rest, including Michele Gumabao, Risa Sato and Jema Galanza, provided the needed support and setter Jia Morado kept Motolite’s defense guessing with her brilliant playmaking all throughout the encounter.
“Air Force, we haven’t seen them play for the longest time. Myla (Pablo) and (Jeanette) Panaga were still with the squad then but now, they’re a completely different team.” – Alyssa Valdez #PVL
