ANTIPOLO CITY—PetroGazz brought the heat and powered past Creamline 25-15, 28-30, 25-23, 25-19, to take home the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference championship Sunday at Ynares Center here.
The Angels, who are just in their first finals appearance, denied the three-peat bid of Cool Smashers, who also won the 2018 Reinforced Conference and the 2018 Open Conference.
From a 14-14 deadlock, PetroGazz lit up and mounted a blistering 10-3 run to get to the 24-17 championship point on Janisa Johnson’s crosscourt kill.
The Cool Smashers managed to salvage two points courtesy of Jovielyn Prado’s service error and Risa Sato’s ace, but Johnson got the job done for the Angeles with another brilliant kill.
Johnson not only delivered PetroGazz a title, she also took home the Finals MVP plum.
