Creamline guns for a fourth straight win to remain at the helm when it faces BanKo-Perlas Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference at The Arena in San Juan City.
Match is at 6 p.m. with the Cool Smashers seeking a followup to their straight set victories over the Air Force Lady Jet Spikers, the Motolite Power Builders and the Chef’s Classics Lady Red Spikers.
Also eyeing to keep their records unblemished are Choco Mucho and Pacifictown Army as they collide at 2 p.m.
The Flying Titans debuted with a 25-12, 25-18, 25-18 triumph over the BaliPure Water Defenders while the Lady Troopers started their campaign on a bright note with a 25-23, 25-23, 17-25, 20-25 win also against BaliPure.
Focus will be on Creamline as it remains the top team to beat with its powerful attacks, solid blocks and sharp serves.
In their 25-12, 25-5, 25-15 drubbing of Chef’s Classics three days ago, the Cool Smashers walloped 32 kills, made 11 blocks and posted 10 aces in the 60-minute game.
Alyssa Valdez continues to be the heart and soul of Creamline especially on offense along with Michele Gumabao, Jema Galanza, Jia Morado and Mel Gohing.
Challenging Creamline’s frontline are Nicole Tiamzon, Dzi Gervacio, Kathy Bersola and Sue Roces as BanKo-Perlas aims to improve its 2-1 mark.
In the other pairing, Choco Mucho’s triple tower of Kat Tolentino, Maddie Madayag and Bea De Leon are expected to fuel the squad as they go up against Army’s veterans in Royse Tubino, Jem Gutierrez and Ging Balse.
Meanwhile, BaliPure and Air Force hope to recover from back-to-back defeats when they battle at 4 p.m.
