    REGINE Arocha and Jovielyn Prado took charge in thrilling finish as the Power Smashers stunned Creamline 25-23, 21-25, 25-17, 20-25, 15-13 to stop a two-game skid in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Center in San Juan on Tuesday.

    Arocha and Prado led a stirring fifth set comeback for the Power Smashers from a three-point deficit early in the decider and took a 13-11 lead. Alyssa Valdez scored for Creamline on the next play only to give match point to the Power Smashers on a service error.
