MANILA, Philippines — After a first set let-up, Adamson toughened up on defense and defeated University of the East Sunday in the UAAP season 76 women’s volleyball tournament.

The Lady Falcons came away with a 23-25, 25-15, 25-17, 25-10 win, though it marked the first time the Lady Warriors ever won a set in the competition.

But Adamson quickly made changes, tightening its net and floor defense and never letting UE gain momentum and threaten again.

“I think we lacked defense at the back, and we had a lot of errors [during the first set],” said Mylene Paat, the Lady Falcons’ sparkplug who had 13 points.

Paat had four blocks while Amanda Villanueva, who also chipped in 13, added three. Sheila Pineda led Adamson with 17 points including five aces.

The Lady Falcons moved to fourth place with a 3-2 record while the Lady Warriors tied University of the Philippines at the bottom with a 0-5 card.

Shayna Adorador had 13 for UE, which put up a fight early against Adamson but just didn’t find the push to get the job done.

The Lady Warriors were also doomed by their 35 miscues compared to the Lady Falcons’ 26.
