Creamline demolished F2 Logistics, 25-19, 25-21, 25-16, as the defending champion kept its unblemished record intact in the Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference Tuesday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Tots Carlos and Jema Galanza led the Cool Smashers’ balanced assault in the match that was expected to be a close contest but turned into a one-sided affair.
Carlos pounded 14 attacks to finish with 15 points to go with 11 digs to lead Creamline to a sixth straight win and continued grip of the solo top spot. Galanza added 11 markers – all coming of kills – and six excellent receptions while Kyle Negrito tallied 20 excellent sets laced with seven points.
Jeanette Panaga and Bernadeth Pons chipped in with six points for the Cool Smashers, who didn’t need to field skipper Alyssa Valdez as they were in full control the rest of the match.
“Our preparation was effective, and it yielded a positive result,” Creamline coach Sherwin Meneses said.
“I’m really happy about this win especially to those who we fielded today delivered,” the mentor added.
The Cargo Movers kept the second set close only to sputter in the home stretch. Smelling blood, Creamline broke the game open early in the third frame to complete the one-hour, 33-minute sweep.
F2 Logistics saw its two-game winning streak snapped to slide down to a 4-3 slate tied with skidding Petro Gazz.
No Cargo Mover reached double-figure scoring with Jolina dela Cruz scoring eight points while Ara Galang and Majoy Baron scored seven markers each. Myla Pablo returned to action after missing two games due to back spasms.
