Michelle Cobb, La Salle thump Adamson
Defending champion La Salle made quick work of Adamson, 25-16, 25-21 25-20, in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament Saturday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Rookie Jolina dela Cruz led all scorers with 10 points while Michelle Cobb dished out 25 excellent sets for the Lady Spikers, who rolled to 2-0 to start the season after beating fierce rival Ateneo in their first game on Sunday.
La Salle has now won 12 straight wins dating back to last season.
But DLSU head coach Ramil de Jesus said his team still has to iron out some kinks including the players’ communication on the floor which was evident in the second set after allowing the Lady Falcons to make a push.
“There are still situations where they fail to adjust and commit errors and perhaps it’s because of their lack of communication inside the court,” said de Jesus, whose squad blew a 17-11 lead in the second set as Adamson pulled within a point, 22-21.
Des Cheng and Aduke Ogunsanya added nine points each for La Salle while May Luna chipped in eight.
Bernadette Flora and Mary Joy Dacoron scored nine points apiece for the Lady Falcons, who fell to 0-2.
