Bali Pure blanks Creamline to reach PVL Finals
Bali Pure head coach Roger Gorayeb said he never predicted that their last semifinal match would turn out to be such a cakewalk, and all he did was give a little motivational speech to his players minutes before the game.
“Actually I never expected this sweep, and I didn’t talk much during before the game,” said Gorayeb. “I just told them to treat this game as one in the championship round and that they should work as a team and not as individuals.”
The Water Defenders enjoyed a well laid-out offense with skipper Grethcel Soltones and guest player Jennifer Keddy scoring 13 points apiece while Risa Sato and Jeng Bualee adding a combined 20.
Bali Pure also scored on a combined 41 spikes while limiting the Cool Smashers to just 30.
Kaewpin Kuttika had 14 points to lead Creamline while skipper Alyssa Valdez added 13.
