Creamline scores hard fought sweep of Cignal for bounce back PVL win

BACARRA, ILOCOS NORTE — After suffering its first loss of the season, Creamline vented its ire on the also-ran Cignal through a hard-fought, 25-22, 27-25, 25-19 sweep on Monday in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference at the PCV Socio-Civic and Cultural Center here.

The Cool Smashers remained at the second spot with a 6-1 standing.

Down by one in the third set, Risa Sato, Tots Carlos, and Alyssa Valdez ignited a 5-0 spurt to hand Creamline a 23-19 advantage.

An attack error from the side of Cignal placed the Cool Smashers at match-point before Pau Soriano capped off the 7-0 rally to clinch the 25-19 win.

“Yung Cignal talagang lumalaban din ‘yan, depende lang talaga kung anong ilalaro ng kalaban nila,” said Creamline interim coach Sherwin Meneses.

“Hindi naman kami nagpahinga, talagang lumaban lang yung Cignal maganda yung ginalaw nila. Buti na lang nakabawi kami nung third set so lesson din sa amin yun,” he continued.

Valdez led the way for the Cool Smashers with 14 points off 11 attacks, two aces, and a block to go along with 10 excellent receptions and seven excellent digs.

Michele Gumabao added 11 points in the win while Jema Galanza chipped in 10 markers.
