La Salle-Dasma, AdU outplay foes


DE LA SALLE-Dasmariñas neutralized San Sebastian’s power game to come away with a 25-20, 25-17, 29-27 victory yesterday in the Shakey’s V-League Season 10 First Conference at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Beatrice Canillas, Mariel Desengaño and Iari Yongco combined for 34 points as the Lady Patriots finished the elimination round with a 2-2 record and the No. 3 seed in Group A.

Later, Adamson overcame Perpetual Help in four hard-fought sets, 25-11, 25-19, 20-25, 25-16.

With the victory, the Lady Falcons secured the No. 2 seed in Group B and joined the quarterfinal bracket that includes University of Santo Tomas, San Sebastian and Perpetual Help.

La Salle, on the other hand, will be with National U, Ateneo and Arellano in Group A.

The results of the games of teams in the same quarterfinal bracket will be carried over in the playoffs, which meant that the Lady Patriots will now have a 0-1 record  after losing to Ateneo last Sunday.

The Lady Patriots bounced back mightily as they took the Lady Stags out of their rhythm with their solid blocking. Although Jeng Bualee got away with 22 points, the Lady Patriots unsettled the rest of the San Sebastian squad to win in an hour and 15 minutes.

La Salle registered a 12-3 edge on block points with Yongco and Desengaño each tallying four blocks.

The Lady Patriots climbed out of a 15-19 deficit in the third set with Jeniffer Manzano on the firing end.

“We prepared well for Bualee and even had my team play against our men’s team just to toughen them up,” said La Salle coach Darwin Campana. “We were composed every time they made a run.”

Playing with confidence, the Lady Falcons  brandished a lethal attacking game anchored on Shiela Pineda, Angela Benting and skipper Pau Soriano.

Pineda paced the Lady Falcons with 18 points while Soriano and Benting had 15 apiece for Adamson,    which rallied from 4-11 down to seal the win in the fourth set.

“We were able to adjust after the third set especially on defense,” said Pineda.

Sandra Delos Santos topscored for the Lady Altas with 17 points, including four aces. With a report from Carla Perez

    Dear Inquirer,
    After leading 1-0 in the fourth set, Perpetual Help never led again. This line – Pineda paced the Lady Falcons with 18 points while Soriano and Benting had 15 apiece for Adamson, which rallied from 4-11 down to seal the win in the fourth set – needs correction.
