CREAMLINE and Petro Gazz clash one last time for the PVL Reinforced Conference title at Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo City.
The winner-take-all match is set at 4 p.m., less than 24 hours after the second match of the best-of-three series, and Petro Gazz coach Arnold Laniog says neither team has a massive advantage.
“Parehas lang na pagod, walang advantage. Pero siguro ang pinaka-advantage namin is yung momentum is with us,” Laniog told reporters on Saturday.
“Ang tanong gaano namin iha-handle ang momentum namin habang mainit pa para maipakita namin sa do-or-die championship?”
Eyes will again be on Wilma Salas and Janisa Johnson, who have led the Angels to their first ever finals appearance and now a step closer to the title after extending the series.
Pressure is also on Johnson and the local crew led by Jeanette Panaga, Cherry Nunag and Jonah Sabete, as Salas revealed after the second match that she played through pain in her hitting hand.
Alyssa Valdez is bracing for a tough series decider against the only team that has managed to score a win over the Cool Smashers in the finals.
“Iisa lang yung goal namin parehas na team e. So kung sino unang bibigay, unang bibitaw, yun talaga,” Valdez said. “For the longest time, eto lang yung series na naka-extend at ibang team yung kalaban namin.”
“Kahit anong mangyari, pagkabinigay namin ang buong buong buong buong o kung ano pa yung pinakabuo, masaya kami kung ano kalalabasan ng game,” Valdez said.
