Creamline grounds Air Force for 3-0 start
Creamline continued its impressive start in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference after stopping Philippine Air Force, 25-19, 25-22, 22-25, 25-12, Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The Cool Smashers joined Pocari atop the ladder with identical 3-0 cards while the Lady Jet Spikers are in .500 territory with a 1-1 record.
Creamline assistant coach Oliver Almadro said his team didn’t play at its fullest in the third set and the coaching staff had to remind the players to pick up the intensity in the fourth.
“Well I saw that they started off properly in the fourth set and they upped the intensity right away,” said Almadro.
“We started right in the third set but we didn’t have that much intensity so we told them to pick it up, start it properly and end it properly.”
Alyssa Valdez led the Cool Smashers with 23 points while Rosemarie Vargas and Pau Soriano combined for 21 points.
Jia Morado, who had 71 excellent sets in her previous performance, had 36 assists this time.
Iari Yongco led the Lady Jet Spikers with 18 points.
