University of the Philippines-United Auctioneers, Inc. and Foton arranged a battle for seventh place in the Philippine Superliga Invitational Conference at Imus Sports Center in Cavite.

Isa Molde came through for the Lady Maroons, who shook off a slow start to beat Cocolife, 23-25, 25-20, 25-16, 25-13, for their first win in the tournament.

The Tornadoes, meanwhile, didn’t break a sweat after it won by default against University of the East-Cherrylume.

The Lady Warriors couldn’t get to the venue due to the heavy rain and flood as ‘Henry’ intensified to a tropical storm midday Tuesday.
