La Salle targets Final Four slot, battles FEU

/ 09:53 PM January 17, 2012

MANILA, Philippines—Reigning champion De La Salle shoots for an early entry into the Final Four when it battles Far Eastern University (FEU) at the resumption Wednesday of UAAP Season 74 women’s volleyball action at the Arena in San Juan.

But Lady Archers coach Ramil de Jesus knows the semifinal berth won’t be easy picking against the Lady Tamaraws, who gave the Taft-based belles a tough time before yielding a five-setter, 25-22, 25-15, 23-25, 23-25, 15-11, when they met in the first round of the eliminations.

“Yung lahat ng nagpahirap sa amin sa first round, dapat mabawian namin sa pamamagitan ng magandang laro (We have to get back at those who gave us a hard time in the first round by playing really well),” said de Jesus, whose wards will be bringing an unblemished 8-0 record against the FEU side that is running third with a 5-3 record behind second-running Ateneo (6-2).

The De La Salle-FEU match is set at 3:30 p.m., right after the Adamson (4-4)-National University (NU, 1-7) women’s duel at 2 p.m.
