CREAMLINE shut down Motolite, 25-18, 25-15, 25-8, to forge a Finals rematch against Petro Gazz in the Premier Volleyball League S(PVL) eason 3 Open Conference on Sunday at the Arena in San Juan City.
Just 24 hours after a four-set victory in Game One of their semifinal series, the Cool Smashers hardly eased up in slamming the door on Motolite behind the dynamic duo of Alyssa Valdez and Jia Morado.
By winning their 18th straight match, the Cool Smashers reached their fourth straight finals where they will get a shot at settling a score against Reinforced Conference finals tormentor Petro Gazz.
The best-of-three series fires off on November 6.
Valdez delivered 15 points off 10 attacks, three service aces and two blocks as the Cool Smashers demolished Motolite in just 71 minutes.
“A day playing together will really make a difference. We’re out for how many weeks din, iba rin talaga 'yung feeling nakapaglaro kami ng magkakasama kahapon,” said the three-time PVL MVP.
“We talked yesterday and mas naging confident din kami na mas gagalingan pa namin para reward na namin sa paghihirap and mga sacrifices din na pinagdaanan namin this conference.”
Michele Gumabao and Celine Domingo chipped in 12 points apiece. Jema Galanza added eight points, 11 digs and eight excellent receptions, while libero Kyla Atienza protected the floor with 19 digs and 12 excellent receptions.
“We really banked on our experience as a team for months, for years. We’re really happy na naitawid namin ang semifinals but we know na marami pa kaming kailangan sa training this week,” said Morado, who dished out 21 excellent sets.
Nobody scored in double figures for Motolite with Myla Pablo and Bern Flora having the most points with six markers each.
Tots Carlos sat out the do-or-die game as Motolite was relegated to the battle for the bronze medal against Banko.
