/ 10:59 PM August 28, 2011

MANILA—Ateneo’s Alyssa Valdez and Bea Tan went through the eye of the needle to dispose of Michelle Gumabao and Camille Cruz of La Salle, 21-19, 19-21, 15-2, for their second straight win in UAAP Season 74 women’s beach volleyball at the University of the East sand court in Caloocan.

The Lady Eagles lost their momentum in the face of the Lady Archers’ searing second-set rally, but were able to regroup on Valdez’s crisp and vicious attacks.

With Ateneo as early tournament leaders were University of Santo Tomas and Far Eastern University.

Tigresses Maru Banaticla and Judy Caballejo beat National U’s Mary Grace Diesta and Lucille Bayron, 21-12, 21-16, while Lady Tamaraws Shedd dela Peña and Loryvel Faytaren downed Aia del Mundo and Pau Genido of the University of the Philippines, 21-8, 21-12.

Adamson’s Pau Soriano and Sheila Pineda bested University of the East’s Jimberly Dawn Dizon and Jessica Paron, 22-20, 17-21, 15-11.
