PVL: Creamline ends PacificTown’s playoff bid with 3-set win
MANILA, Philippines–Creamline lassoed in win No. 14 using the same rope as a noose to end PacificTown Army’s semifinals hopes Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference at FilOil Flying V Center.
Playing without feeling the need to use main weapon Alyssa Valdez, unbeaten Creamline was in cruise control of the match in scoring a 25-15, 25-18, 25-22, triumph.
That win assured the Cool Smashers’ spot as top team in the semis facing the No. 4 ranked qualifier.
Valdez sat at the bench as coach Tai Bundit decided to rest her for her upcoming trip to Japan where she will train with the national team along with teammate Jia Morado.
The Lady Troopers appeared to have a tight grasp of the third set, leading 16-9 before the Cool Smashers unleashed a 10-3 rally that turn the momentum on their favor for good.
PacificTown-Army is out of the running at 6-8.
