Creamline reasserted its mastery over Choco Mucho in straight sets 25-18, 25-13, 25-14 in their much-anticipated affair in the 2023 Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference on Tuesday, Feb. 14, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Cool Smashers' consistency from beginning to end brought them to a 3-0 start before a roaring crowd of 9,575.

Three Creamline players scored in double-figures, with Jema Galanza, Ced Domingo and Michele Gumabao all tallying 15 points to lead the assault.

Creamline surged to another telling lead of 12 points until the end of the second set, similar to their double-digit advantage in the opening.

The third set saw no glimpse of recovery from the Flying Titans once the Cool Smashers pulled away midway from their slim 11-9 advantage as Domingo finished off the masterclass with back-to-back points including a single block on Kat Tolentino to seal the win.

"Palitan ng errors nu'ng una. Pero sana magtuluy tuloy iyong maganda iyong nilalaro. Satisfied naman kami, mahaba pa naman iyong conference," said Creamline head coach Sherwin Meneses.

Des Cheng and Tolentino paced the Flying Titans both with an eight-point outing in the losing effort which obviously did little damage to the solid Cool Smashers side as they fall to the 1-2 hole.that awaited them.
