Popular squads Pocari, Creamline face off
Title favorites Pocari Sweat and Creamline collide even as Air Force and Power Smashers mix it up Thursday in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference at FilOil Fiying V Centre in San Juan.
The Lady Warriors and the Cool Smashers are two of the more popular squads in the league, which should make the 6:30 p.m. match an exciting one.
Myla Pablo, Elaine Kasilag, and Jeannete Panaga will lead Pocari Sweat, which has won the last two conferences but is now missing former team captain Michelle Gumabao.
It hardly mattered last Tuesday as the Lady Warriors drubbed Perlas Spikers, 25-19, 25-19, 25-19.
Creamline will lean on superstar Alyssa Valdez, who has struggled to carry her team all by herself. The Cool Smashers are at 1-2 and will enter the court nursing a 25-23, 21-25, 25-17, 20-25, 15-13 defeat at the hands of Power Smashers.
The Power Smashers, led by Regine Arocha, Jovelyn Prado and Katherine Villegas , hope to ride that win when they go up against Air Force at 4 p.m.
Meanwhile, Sta. Elena shoots for the solo lead in the men’s side as it battles Instituto Estetico Manila at 1 p.m.
