Though her punch-packing attacks can get the job done for the Cool Smashers, Creamline skipper Alyssa Valdez only had a total of 12 spike attempts in the match against Chef’s Classics Red Spikers on Sunday.

“Unusual, definitely,” she admitted.

“First time na mangyayari na twelve attempts ako, promise.”

The product of Ateneo did not flounder in the attacking department. Instead, she was forced to troop in the service area and deal damage from afar.

Valdez had a long and steady outing at the service line when the Cool Smashers mounted sizable leads in the early-goings of the match.

Flaunting her lethal service game, the product of Ateneo uncorked 16 consecutive services to erect a 16-1 cushion in the first set. In the next frame, she went for 19 straight attempts that gave Creamline a 19-1 spread.

“‘Yung goal ko kasi talaga – siyempre more than na hindi ako mag-errors sa service line, is to get points para may points din sa likod,” Valdez said.

For her part, the five-time V-League MVP was glad that she’d performed efficiently in that particular department.

“I’m happy na ‘di ako nagka-errors sa service line kasi it’s frustrating to get errors from the service line. But I’m really confident kasi na.”

The proud daughter of Batangas netted seven of her Creamline’s ten aces. She also hammered down eight attacks — on an efficient 66 percent clip — en route to a game-high 16 points.

But most importantly, Valdez orchestrated the Cool Smashers’ drubbing of Chef’s Classics to sustain their 3-0 start and keep hold of the top seed.
