The Thursday match between the Creamline Cool Smashers and the Akari Chargers delivered all kinds of emotion for fans.

In the end, the defending champions remained undefeated, 25-22, 21-25, 25-22, 25-19. But not without feeling sentimental.

It was Dennise Lazaro-Revilla's first game as part of the Creamline Cool Smashers.

And she definitely felt the good vibes with 11 excellent receptions in her debut.

It was also Bea de Leon's debut in a pink jersey.

And the feeling of reuniting with Ateneo teammates felt pretty good, as BDL delivered five points, including a block against Akari.

But the Akari Chargers definitely put up a fight.

There was swag as Fifi Sharma scored 14, including three blocks and an ace.

They nabbed the second set, 25-21.

But the Creamline Cool Smashers could not be denied.

It was the Tots Carlos show.

She took what Kyle Negrito has given and fired a career-high 31 points from 30 attacks and an ace. 

It was her best since scoring 29 as part of Motolite in 2019, and since creating 28 as part of Creamline against Petro Gazz in 2022.

Ced Domingo made four points against her former team.

It ended in sweet hugs...

...and tender cheek kisses.

She will always be part of the Creamline family.

Even while wearing a different shade of pink.
