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.
