University of Santo Tomas may have squandered a 2-0 set lead but it still came through when it mattered most to drop vaunted National University in five sets, 25-14, 25-18, 17-25, 19-25, 15-12, in the UAAP Season 78 women’s volleyball tournament Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena.

A couple of blocks trampled the Lady Bulldogs’ comeback hopes as the Golden Tigresses notched their second straight win and improve to 2-3 in the standings.

National University had an 11-6 early in the set but it was UST’s period to win with Chloe Cortez tying it at 12-12 and Jorelle Singh fumbling to give UST a 13-12 lead.


University of Santo Tomas’ spitfire duo of EJ Laure and Cherry Rondina each finished with 21 points while veteran Carmela Tunay added 13 points.

Jaja Santiago lead the 3-2 Lady Bulldogs with 23 points while Myla Pablo added 20.
