Lady Altas escape Lady Stags in NCAA volleyball
University of Perpetual Help blew a two-set lead before recovering just in time to San Sebastian, 25-22, 25-23, 7-25, 18-25, 15-11, Monday in the NCAA Season 93 women’s volleyball tournament at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Ma. Lourdes Clemente unleashed 15 points, 11 of which came off spikes while also delivering four blocks to lead the Lady Altas in their second win in three games.
Cindy Imbo added 14 markers, Bianca Tripoli chipped in 12, while Necelle Mae Gual delivered 40 excellent sets for Perpetual.
After racing to a 2-0 set lead, the Lady Altas collapsed in the next two sets that paved way for the deciding fifth set.
Clemente, Imbo, and Tripoli, however, rescued Perpetual Help from its meltdown.
It was a valiant effort from the undermanned San Sebastian crew, led by Daurene Santos’ 22 points.
Earlier, Lyceum stopped its two-match slide after a 26-24, 24-26, 25-21, 25-17 victory over Mapua.
Bien Elaine Juanillo and Monica Jane Sevilla did the heavy lifting for the Lady Pirates as both collected 18 points in the win. Christine Miralles had 15.
The Lady Cardinals, meanwhile, remained winless after three outings despite the efforts of Dianne Latayan and Patria Jela Peña, who combined for 36 points in the defeat.
