Creamline has nothing but a Grand Slam in mind when the defending champions face PetroGazz in Game 2 of the best-of-3 finals of the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference on Saturday.

Drawing first blood, 24-26, 25-16, 25-16, 25-22, in the series opener Wednesday, Creamline is now on the cusp of cementing its status as a dynasty with another win.

Opening serve is scheduled at 4 p.m. at FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan, after the individual awards and the battle for third place between BanKo and PacificTown Army.

The match will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.

With a chance to make history, Creamline wants to approach Game 2 with the same mentality that brought them its previous 12 victories.

Backing Alyssa Valdez is a solid crew bannered by Thai player Kuttika Kaewpin, Venezuelan Ale Blanco, multi-awarded setter Jia Morado, Michele Gumabao and Risa Sato.

However, PetroGazz is not giving up without a fight.

Game 3, if necessary, is at Ynares Sports Center in Antipolo Sunday.
