Creamline squads dominate BVR on Tour in Cagayan


CREAMLINE’S squads lived up to their billing by dominating the first of the two-day Beach Volleyball Republic on Tour Santa Ana edition on Friday in Cagayan.

Creamline 1’s Sisi Rondina and Bernadeth Pons needed only 31 minutes to beat Sta. Lucia 1’s Jackie Estoquia and DM Demontaño, 21-8, 21-13, right after they booked a 21-10, 21-11 victory over TM’s Mer Jauculan and Hannah Cabansay to lead Pool B with a 2-0 won-lost card. 

Not to be outdone were Dij Rodriguez and Dzi Gervacio as the Creamline 2 pair topped PLDT’s Ella and Iza Viray, 21-16, 21-14, and Delimondo’s MJ Ebro and Bianca Lizares, 21-14, 21-10, to also post a 2-0 record in Pool C. 

Both winning teams form the core of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games bronze medal-clinching squad.

Rondina and Pons and Rodriguez and Gervacio are using the Santa Ana leg as part of their training for the Asian Seniors Beach Volleyball Championship set from November 23 to 27 in Phuket, Thailand. 

Biogenic Alcohol’s Heather Guino-o and Roma Joy Doromal joined Rodriguez and Gervacio on top of the Pool C standings following a 22-20, 21-17 conquest of PLDT’s Ella and Iza Viray and a 21-11, 21-11 romp of Black Mamba Army 2’s Jem Gutierrez and Audrey Paran.

Estoquia and DM Demontaño, who pulled off a 21-19, 21-15 victory over Black Mamba Army 1’s Nene Bautista and Jeannie Delos Reyes in their Pool B opener, fell into a tie with Jauculan and Cabansay at 1-1.

Cabansay and Jauculan rebounded from their loss to Rondina and Pons with a 21-12, 21-14 decision over Bautista and  Delos Reyes. 

In Pool A, Eastern Perlas Spikers’ Jules Samonte and Mich Morente topped Toyota-Tuguegarao’s Nicole Tiamzon and Jho Maraguinot, 21-19, 21-12, to chalk up their first win, while Good Health CDO’s Babylove Barbon and Gen Eslapor also had a winning start with a 21-13, 21-17 tripping of Sta. Lucia 2’s Bang Pineda and Glaudine Troncoso. 

Pool play resumes at 8 a.m. Saturday.
