Alyssa Valdez and the whole Creamline crew will try to keep their winning romp going in a rematch with Ateneo-Motolite.
League-leading Creamline seeks to continue its hot streak and repeat over Ateneo-Motolite in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the Batangas City Coliseum on Sunday.
Opening serve is at 6:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.
The Cool Smashers closed the first round with six straight wins for a 6-1 win-loss record at solo top spot.
Creamline is coming off an emphatic 25-23, 25-17, 25-14, victory over the Lady Eagles in Baliwag, Bulacan last week in Alyssa Valdez and Jia Morado’s first match against their former college teammates.
It was an easy win for the Cool Smashers as the Lady Eagles played without starters Kat Tolentino, Maddie Madayag and Ponggay Gaston, who were on a community immersion as part of their academic requirements.
“Well not naman complete Ateneo team so definitely they’ll gonna bounce back,” said Valdez after their first round conquest of Ateneo-Motolite. “So I guess the real battle will be on Sunday ‘cause everyone’s gonna be there.”
The Lady Eagles sport a 6-2 win-loss record tied with BanKo and are coming off a an emphatic 27-25, 25-21, 25-21, sweep of Pocari Sweat-Arir Force Saturday night in Imus.
