The duo of Jema Galanza and Michele Gumabao worked wonders for the Creamline Cool Smashers as they overpowered the Petro Gazz Angels in four sets, 25-21, 26-24, 19-25, 25-18, earlier in the 2019 Premier Volleyball League Open Conference in Bacolod City.
Without the services of team captain Alyssa Valdez, the Cool Smashers relied on Galanza and Gumabao to lead the onslaught against the Angels and stay undefeated in the tournament.
Galanza took charge for the defending Open Conference champions with 25 markers built on a triple-double performance, while Gumabao added 16 atop a double-double showing.
Meanwhile, open spikers Jovy Prado and Steph Mercado led the losing effort for Petro Gazz with 14 and 12 points respectively.
With the win, Creamline keeps their unblemished 13-0 record, while the Angels take a 9-4 slate.
The Cool Smashers are already assured of a semifinals berth together with the Banko Perlas Spikers.
Meanwhile, both Petro Gazz and Motolite are looking to seal the two remaining Final Four slots as they seek to clinch their tenth win of the conference.
