BaliPure matched Po-cari Sweat’s feat by re-peating over an Alyssa Valdez-less Creamline, 25-22, 27-25, 25-23, in their side of the sudden death as the Water Defenders sealed a title clash with the Lady Warriors for the se-cond straight conference.
After a pair of five-setters, the Water Defen-ders took the game that mattered most in a best-of-three series via short route, pouncing on Julia Morado’s service error and banking on Risa Sato’s quick hit to finish off the Cool Sma-shers.
BaliPure, which lost the Reinforced Conference crown to Pocari Sweat last June, dropped the semis opener, 19-25, 25-13, 26-28, 25-15, 7-15, but forced a rubber match with a 25-19, 19-25, 25-16, 18-25, 15-13 win in Game 2.
