Perpetual still spotless
DEFENDING women’s division champion Perpetual Help Lady Altas ended the year 2012 with an impressive 25-12, 25-21, 25-19 victory over the Intramuros-based Letran Lady Knights to keep their slate clean in the 89th Season of NCAA at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan City.
Lady Altas of Coach Jason Sapin and Sandy Rieta were still unscathed in five games to remain seated at the top spot with reigning MVP Sandra Delos Santos collecting 17 markers, 15 of which came from attacks.
Perpetual continued its dominance in the league, extending its winning streak to 19 since the previous season.
Four of their five games this year were decided in just three sets. The lone team to push them into a five-setter was San Sebastian, 25-19, 22-25, 25-14, 20-25, 21-19.
The men’s team of Philippine coach Sinfronio ‘Sammy’ Acaylar, meanwhile, subdued the Letran Knights, 22-25, 25-23, 19-25, 26-24, 15-11, behind the 23 points of skipper Jay dela Cruz.
Junior Altas’ Eldrige Capal took the lead, meanwhile, in Perpetual’s 25-14, 25-20, 25-19 victory over Letran.
The younger Altas cruised past the Squires with Capal scoring 15 points built around eight spikes and four blocks.
