Lady Falcons notch third straight win
Airess Padda, Adamson’s eloquent, photogenic American coach, knows things are only going to get tougher in the days to come.
“We are slowly getting the consistency that we’ve been working for,” said Padda of the Lady Falcons after mangling the Technological Institute of the Philippines Lady Engineers, 25-12, 25-14, 25-13, Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference.
The win was third straight for Adamson, which is trying to rebuild itself from a disastrous campaign last year in the UAAP.
It also moved the Lady Falcons two wins closer to an outright semifinals stint.
But Padda knows better than to celebrate this early.
“We need to play even better because the competition is going to get tougher for us,” said Padda, who joined Adamson in the previous UAAP season, where the Lady Falcons scored only one win.
It was a far different Adamson that showed up Saturday afternoon at FilOil Flying V Center.
The Lady Falcons were a picture of confidence and efficiency, with Jem Galanza leading the way with 18 points.
Meanwhile, Ateneo sprung back from a previous defeat with a dominating 25-23, 25-20, 25-20 triumph over Lyceum for a 2-1 slate.
The Lady Pirates fell to a 1-2 record.
