Maureen Loren added 11 points and last year’s Best Setter Djanel Cheng tossed in 27 excellent sets for the Lady Blazers.


St. Benilde joined defending champion University of Perpetual Help on top of the standings.

Arellano, meanwhile, rebounded from its season-opening loss to San Beda with a 25-16, 25-21, 25-23 decision over Emilio Aguinaldo College.

The Lady Chiefs trailed most of the third set but picked up the pace late, sealing the win with a kill from Danna Henson and an attacking error from the Lady Generals.

Elaine Sagun fired 10 points, while Shirley Salamagos had nine points including two blocks for Arellano, which tied EAC at 1-1.

Arian Angustia had six blocks to finish with 12 points while Donna Mae Factor had nine markers for the Lady Generals.
