The Power Smashers improve their standing to 4-4 after defeating the Creamline Cool Smashers on Sunday at the ongoing PVL tournament. They needed at least 5 sets before winning the matchup and the scoring is 17-25, 25-22, 25-18, 18-25 and 15-10. With the win, the team kept their chances alive for an outright spot in the semifinals round.
Import Kannika Tipachot played impressively by completing 15 attacks as well as 20 digs to lead the team. This is a good opportunity for the Power Smashers to regain their composure after a dismal loss against the Perlas Spikers last Saturday.
Power Smashers head coach Nes Pamilar said that the players helped each other, but they still need to play solid.
Alyssa Valdez led the Cool Smashers with 17 points, American import Laura Schaudt and Thailand import Kuttika Kaewpin scored 16 points apiece. They dropped their record to 3-5 and not in a good position to reach the semifinals.
