MANILA, Philippines–The Creamline Cool Smashers remain the queens of the PVL All-Filipino Conference.

The now eight-time champions retained their supremacy against sister team Choco Mucho for the second championship series in a row with a 20-25, 25-20, 22-25, 25-22, 15-11 victory Sunday night at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Finals MVP Jema Galanza was on a mission and delivered 20 attacks for the Cool Smashers, who claimed their fourth straight All-Filipino Conference crown.

“Yung laro namin, hindi lang isa yung naglalaro, gumagawa, team kami naglaro kaya nakuha namin yung game na to,” Galanza said.

“Alam naman din namin na hindi nila ibibigay agad-agad samin to kaya talagang umabot ng five sets and alam naman natin kung gano din talaga ka-lumalaban yung Choco Mucho,” she added.

Creamline once again relied on its well-knit bench led by Bernadeth Pons, who contributed 17 points, 14 of which came from attacks.

Last conference’s Finals MVP Tots Carlos poured in 16 points, four of which were blocks, and Pangs Panaga 13 points, three coming from blocks.

“Naniwala lang din kami sa isa’t isa and iniisip lang namin na ayaw na namin mag-training kasama na yun and gusto lang talaga namin na makuha na tong game na ‘to,” Galanza said.

Despite Choco Mucho star Sisi Rondina contributing 31 points from 28 attacks, four blocks and an ace, the Flying Titans were still left looking for a first-ever franchise title.

Choco Mucho, for the second straight conference, landed a silver medal after bowing out to the Cool Smashers.

“As always naman lagi talaga ako naka-mindset na ready ako anytime na gagamitin ako nila coach and sa team kasi, sabi nga samin kanina pag may nawawala, may nags-step up,” Pons said.

“So yun yung sobrang ganda sa team kasi lahat talaga kami nagtutulungan and lahat nagc-contribute kaya nakuha namin yung panalo na ‘to,” Pons added.
