Creamline-PetroGazz series starts
It’s going to be offense versus defense Wednesday when Creamline and PetroGazz open their best-of-three series for the Philippine Volleyball League Open Conference title at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
The 6 p.m. clash will feature the league’s best offense that cranks up an average of close to 35 kills a contest, against the Angels squad that normed more than two kill-blocks per set and received services with an efficiency rating of close to 45 percent.
It will also be about revenge for the Cool Smashers and confirmation for the Angels, who denied Creamline in the Reinforced Conference finals in July.
And there’s also this thing of Creamline completing the perfect tournament after sweeping the elimination round.
The Finals will be aired live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.
Meanwhile, BanKo-Perlas and Motolite tangle in their best-of-three battle for third at 4 p.m.
The long break should’ve given both teams ample time to polish their respective play patterns and toughen up on their reception and defensive plays.
Creamline looks stronger, tougher on paper with the likes of national team mainstays Alyssa Valdez and Jia Morado.
After sweeping the elims that saw them drop just five sets, the Cool Smashers crushed the Motolite side in their semis face-off to stretch their record win run to 18 with an eye of completing a first-ever 20-game sweep for a championship.
