The Creamline Cool Smashers masterfully took Game One of the PVL Open Conference Finals over the Ateneo-Motolite Lady Eagles, and stepped closer to their second championship of the season.
Winning Game One also unlocked a valuable opportunity for Creamline captain Alyssa Valdez. In Game Two, the proud native of San Juan, Batangas can clinch a championship in her home province.
“Minsan lang mangyayare ‘yun. Hindi lang inspired, pero I think it’s one way of giving back also, na lahat ng galing sa Batangas, babalik at babalik talaga sa Batangas,” mused Valdez, who poured seven attacks and seven aces in Game One.
“Mahirap pa rin ‘yan kasi Ateneo kalaban namin. We’re just happy na mashe-share namin ‘yung entertainment sa mas madaming tao. It’s a big factor na may seventh man kami na nagchi-cheer kahit anong mangyari.”
More than anything, the Cool Smashers want to win a championship for their beloved coach Tai Bundit.
“This series talaga is for coach Tai. Just knowing lahat ng paghihirap niya for us to prepare. We just want to win talaga for him.”
