    CREAMLINE made quick work of Cignal, 25-17, 25-15, 25-22, to keep its semifinal record unblemished in the 2022 Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Invitational Conference on Monday night at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    Jema Galanza, Tots Carlos and Alyssa Valdez led the way as the Cool Smashers assured themselves of a podium spot with a perfect 3-0 (win-loss) slate in the five-team playoff stage and moved within a win from securing a finals berth.

    "Natuto na kami sa lesson namin noong natalo kami sa Cignal, na kailangan maging maganda 'yung composure namin hanggang sa 25 points. Siguro 'yun ang naging key," said head coach Sherwin Meneses.

    The Cool Smashers pounced on the hapless HD Spikers' defense, sparked by Galanza who tallied 11 points in the first two sets. As a team, they converted 37 attacks against Cignal's 13.
