Repeat-seeking Creamline goes for its ninth straight victory on team captain Alyssa Valdez's 26th birthday.
Birthday girl Alyssa Valdez is expected to display her all-around game as defending champion Creamline shoots for its ninth straight win on Saturday in a showdown with winless BaliPure in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference end of eliminations at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Game time is set at 4:00 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, iWant and via livestream.
Valdez, who turns 26, and the rest of the Cool Smashers are going all out to end the elims on a high note and to bring momentum to the best-of-three Final Four.
Creamline holds an 8-1 win-loss record tied with PetroGazz. The Cool Smashers are coming off a four-set win over PacificTown Army on Wednesday.
A win by Creamline coupled by Motolite’s win over the Angels will give the Cool Smashers the no. 1 seed in the semis.
On the other hand, the Water Defenders try to avoid a fruitless campaign and play the spoilers’ role.
BaliPure carries a 0-9 mark.
