Games Today 3 p.m. – PacificTown Army vs BaliPure
5 p.m. – Creamline vs Motolite

On a five-game run, Creamline still gears up for a tough outing against a surging Motolite side in pursuit of the second semifinal berth in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference returns to the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan today.

The Cool Smashers turned back the Power Builders in their first round elims meeting last June 8, shrugging off a shaky first-set to hack out a 13-25, 25-19, 25-16, 25-23 victory, one of the five they posted since dropping a straight-set setback to first semifinalists and unbeaten PetroGazz Angels in the May 26 opener.

But the defending champions will be hard-pressed to duplicate their win over the undermanned Power Builders in a bid to join the Angels in post-season play of the season-opening conference of the league organized by Sports Vision.

Game time is 5 p.m. with Motolite, still without injured top local ace Myla Pablo, hoping to ride the momentum of its victory over PacificTown Army in Imus, Cavite last Sunday.
