PVL: Lady Troopers equalize

PacificTown Army beat BanKo, 25-23, 20-25, 25-20, 25-23, in Game 2 of the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference battle for third on Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Troopers equalized in the best-of-three series and put themselves in a good position to snatch the bronze depending on the outcome of the championship series between Creamline and PetroGazz. BanKo played catch early in the fourth set and knotted it at 20. Ging Balse Pabayo capped a two-point swing for Army before the Perlas Spikers tied it again at 22.  Ukrainian Lena Lymareva-Flink put the Lady Troopers back on top with an off the block kill before BanKo setter Jem Ferrer was whistled for a setting error that put Army at match point, 24-22. The Perlas Spikers saved a match point before Lymareva-Flink sealed the win with a hammer that penetrated the two-woman wall of BanKo.     Royse Tubino finished with 23 points including 20 off attacks while Lymareva-Flink scored all but one of her 21 markers from kills while adding 13 excellent sets for the Lady Troopers. American Jenelle Jordan had 17 points while Best Libero winner Angela Nunag posted 18 digs for PacificTown Army.  "Definitely, masaya dahil nanalo, pero hindi mo inaasahan na yung laban ang taas ng level. Both teams panalo sa laro na ‘to kasi nagi-exceed na sa expectation yung level ng competitiveness as a whole tapos makikita mo ang team mo kasama doon sa level ng pag-angat," said Lady Troopers coach Kungfu Reyes.  PacificTown Army can bag the bronze medal if Creamline wins over PetroGazz in Game 2 of the Finals because of a higher tiebreak using the FIVB rule. The championship match is ongoing as of press time.    Game 3, if necessary, in on Sunday at the Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo. The Perlas Spikers showed grit in a thrilling 25-27, 10-25, 27-25, 26-24, 16-14, come-from-behind win in Game 1 on Wednesday. Thai Sutadta Chuewulim finished with 14 points with 10 digs and 13 excellent receptions while 1st Best Middle Spiker Kathy Bersola had 13 markers with five coming off kill blocks BanKo. Best Opposite Spiker Dzi Gervacio and 1st Best Open Hitter fired 12 points each in a lost cause.      --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Valdez claims third MVP award

Creamline star Alyssa Valdez added another feather to her cap after bagging the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference Most Valuable Player award. The prized hitter collected her third conference MVP hardware on Saturday before the Cool Smashers’ Game 2 match against PetroGazz in the best-of-three Finals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Valdez averaged 12 points per game, tallied a 35.77% success rate in attacks and led the rest of the field at the service line with 0.68 aces per set during the 10-game elimination round. The national team member also landed at the 10th spot in digging with 2.24 digs per frame for a consistent all-around performance that fueled Creamline’s return to the championship round for the third straight tournament. The Cool Smashers’ skipper, who won the inaugural import-laden conference and last year’s Open Conference MVP recognitions, was also named 2nd Best Open Spiker. BanKo’s Nicole Tiamzon won the 1st Best Open Spiker award. The Perlas Spikers hitter averaged 13 points per game, the highest scoring norm from a local player.      Tiamzon’s teammates Dzi Gervacio and Kathy Bersola won the Best Opposite Hitter and 1st Best Middle Blocker, respectively, Angela Nunag was named Best Libero while Jia Morado pocketed her fourth straight Best Setter award. Morado, who averaged 5.94 excellent sets per frame, ruled the playmaking position since joining the league in the inaugural Open Conference two years ago.               Rounding up the award winners were PetroGazz players Cherry Nunag (2nd Best Middle Blocker) and Cuban Wilma Salas (Best Foreign Guest Player).   ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PetroGazz, Creamline go head to head in PVL Reinforced Conference Finals LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A and iWant

It’s Creamline versus PetroGazz for the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Reinforced Conference crown starting Wednesday (July 10) at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Fans can catch the live coverage of ABS-CBN Sports on S+A, S+A HD, LIGA, LIGA HD, and via streaming on iWant starting at 3 pm.   The reigning and defending Reinforced Conference champs Cool Smashers formalized the dream match-up by fans when they swept the PacificTown Army Lady Troopers last Saturday (July 6). The Angels booked their maiden appearance on the Finals stage by defeating the BanKo Perlas Spikers also in two games, and are now seeking to dethrone the current queens. The Lady Troopers and the Perlas Spikers, meanwhile, will dispute the bronze medal at 3 pm, with the Game 1 of the Finals starting at 5 pm.   The underlying story between the two rival squads was how they were the only ones to beat each other dating back to the elimination rounds. PetroGazz drew first first blood against Creamline in the season opener, giving the Cool Smashers their only loss in the conference. After that opening-day defeat, the defending champs racked up 11 straight victories, including the semifinal series against the Lady Troopers, to barge into the Finals.   “What hurts Creamline opponents the most right now is that their reinforcements have been playing so well. (Kuttika) Kaewpin and (Ale) Blanco have been scoring a lot and they still have Alyssa Valdez, Jema Galanza, there’s just so much firepower,” shared volleyball analyst Mozzy Ravena on “The Score” last Friday (July 5) when asked about how Creamline has sustained its blazing form.   Meanwhile, fellow analyst Fille Cainglet-Cayetano cited that aside from the Cool Smashers’ offense, the team’s defense has been stout thanks to the likes of Liberos Melissa Gohing and Kyla Atienza. On the other side of the fence, the analysts believe that the Angels gained the upperhand thanks to the combined firepower of the troika of Wilma Salas, Janisa Johnson, and to their surprise, Cherry Nunag. “Every game, the imports have been consistent, then there’s that one local who bolsters their attack,” said Ravena. Aside from the three, the Angels can also rely on tried and tested veterans with championship experience like Stephanie Mercado and Jeanette Panaga.   Don’t miss the opening game of the PVL Reinforced Conference Finals series featuring the defending champs Creamline Cool Smashers against the PetroGazz Angels against the BanKo Perlas Spikers this Wednesday (July 10) from the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. All games will be aired LIVE on S+A, S+A HD, LIGA, LIGA HD, and iWant starting at 3 pm with the Battle for Third between PacificTown Army and BanKo Perlas.   For more stories and news on the PVL, follow @ABSCBNSports on Twitter and Facebook or visit sports.abs-cbn.com.
