Creamline clinches bronze by beating Air Force

MANILA, Philippines – (UPDATED) Despite failing to sustain their perfect form in the elimination round, the Creamline Cool Smashers still ended their campaign in the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference on a winning note.

Behind a solid showing from Ceska Racraquin and a gutsy performance from veteran Ging Balse-Pabayo, the Cool Smashers shook off a lethargic start to take down Hair Fairy Air Force, 18-25, 26-24, 25-17, 25-16, in Game 2 on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Creamline swept their best-of-3 series for third place, and thus, for the second consecutive conference, the Cool Smashers are going home with the third-place trophy.

It was a measure of consolation for Creamline, which swept the elimination round, 7-0, but sputtered in the semifinals against BaliPure without ace spiker Alyssa Valdez.

"I guess it's not our time to be in the finals," said Creamline assistant coach Oliver Almadro. "But we're happy that we ended the season on a winning note. Third is better than nothing, and we're happy with this."
