MANILA, PHILIPPINES — La Salle demolishes Adamson after a comeback from what was an unimpressive show from the Lady Spikers in the first quarter.
The scores 22-25, 25-14, 25-16, and 25-19 prompted coach Noel Orcullo to prepare his team for a challenging match with a strong and worthy opponent from the National University on March 22 at Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay City.
“You can be assured that we will play our hearts out. We will definitely show everyone our true worth, what we’re all about-both as individual players and as a team,” said Angel Canino, the rookie considered as La Salle’s sharp weapon who challenged NU in Season 84.
History Repeats Itself
NU is also set to come out ferocious after giving the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws a whipping.
Ane Bella Belen, current Most Valuable Player from the NU camp, will once again exhibit her prowess against the Lady Spikers’ Canino in a rivalry that goes back to history when Canino earned La Salle Zobel to a championship against Nazareth School, which put an end NU’s high school four-year winning streak.
Angel Canino and Thea Gagate made solid numbers to La Salle’s win with 13 points apiece.
Alleiah Malaluan, who suffered an injured knee, reappeared for the first in the season, playing half of the second set that tallied a single point.
Gagate of the Lady Spikers capped off an early lead, followed by Baby Jynne Soreno’s off-the-block spike that ended a 19-13 at their advantage.
FEU made an attempt in the succeeding plays with a 6-1 spurt from an attack by Alyzza Devosora to close the gap to 19-20.
In the second quarter, FEU played better after a crosscourt hit of Chenie Tagaod, 12-14. Tagaod redeemed the Lady Tamaraws with 10 points. Yet, Leila Cruz showed the Lady Tams their might settling at a 20-14 difference which Gagate further pushed with a 2-0 lead. – WhatALife!/Anthony
