PVL: Cool Smashers crush Red Spikers for 3rd win
2 p.m. – Choco Mucho vs PacificTown-Army
4 p.m. – BaliPure vs Air Force
6 p.m. – BanKo-Perlas vs Creamline
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.
The count actually stood at 19-1 before the Cool Smashers slowed down a bit on their attacks and defense, enabling the Red Spikers to snatch some points, including a Nieza Viray tip that stopped the Creamline’s run. Chef’s Classic scored two attack points, a kill block and two off Creamline’s miscues for that forgettable second set showing.
The Red Spikers put some semblance of fight in the third but failed to sustain a three-point binge as the defending champions proved too solid, too strong for one of the league’s newcomers.
It was Creamline’s third win in row, all in shutout fashions, as the Cool Smashers underscored their readiness to defend the crown after yielding the Reinforced Conference title to the PetroGazz Angels recently.
Many-time MVP Alyssa Valdez unleashed 16 points on eight kills, seven aces and a kill block for the crowd favorites, who stayed on the service line 16 straight times in the opening frame and 20-in-row in the next.
Chef’s Classic absorbed its second straight defeat in less than 24 hours following their 22-25, 19-25, 19-25 loss to Motolite late Saturday.
