PVL: Arellano blanks Adamson, closes in on bronze
Arellano University moved closer to claiming third place after beating Adamson, 25-23, 26-24, 25-14, in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Arellano is coming off a loss to undefeated National University in a game that taught the Lady Chiefs lessons and served as a factor to their victory.
“Our loss go NU last game taught us a big lesson,” said Arellano coach Roberto Javier in Filipino.
The Lady Chiefs got swept in the semifinals after taking a 25-17, 26-28, 17-25, 25-13, 20-18 setback on Sunday.
Jovielyn Prado showed the way for Arellano with 18 points while Regine Arocha and Necole Ebuen added 15 and 10 points, respectively.
The Lady Chiefs shoot for the bronze medal on Saturday and Javier thinks the Lady Falcons will come out in full swing.
“It’s important for us to win on Saturday but of course, Adamson will prepare really hard and bounce back. I hope this win motivates us more to win next game.”
Adamson, which drew nine points from Mary Joy Dacoron, suffered its third straight defeat.
