Creamline sustained its momentum, walloping the PacificTown-Army Lady Troopers in straight sets, 25-12, 25-18, 25-13, in Game Two of the 2019 PVL Reinforced Conference best-of-three semifinal series, Saturday at the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo.

With the win, the Cool Smashers booked their third straight trip to the PVL Finals. They will now prepare to defend their title against league-leader Petro Gazz.

“We’re all excited to go up against Petro Gazz kasi we’re 1-1 para pagdating sa finals, back to square one,” Creamline team captain Alyssa Valdez said.

Unlike their previous bout in which the Cool Smashers struggled to create separation at the onset of the match, the reigning champions flaunted their championship form early on that helped them run roughshod over the Lady Troopers in each sets.

“Game One, nawala talaga composure namin sa third set. A lot of contribution from our services today,” Michele Gumabao added, as Creamline notched seven aces to Army’s lone ace from Jovelyn Gonzaga.

Thai import Kuttika Kaewpin top-scored with 12 points, all coming from attacks, laced with 10 excellent digs and eight excellent sets. Valdez supplemented 11 points built on eight attacks and three aces.

Risa Sato chipped nine points while Gumabao added eight points spiked by two blocks. Creamline import Aleoscar Blanco managed seven points, two of which coming from blocks.

Jia Morado got Creamline’s offense churning as she tossed 16 excellent sets to go along two aces for four points.

On the other hand, the Lady Troopers bowed out of championship contention.

Olena Lymareva-Flink, who exploded for 31 in Game One, finished with 11 points on top of 13 excellent receptions.

Gonzaga contributed seven points while American reinforcement Jenelle Jordan netted two blocks for five points.

The Lady Troopers will try to salvage bronze as they take on the BanKo Perlas Spikers. Both the title and bronze matches will be played on Wednesday at the FilOil Arena.
