MANILA, Philippines—With seeming ease defending champion La Salle barrelled closer to the Final Four after crushing Adamson, 25-15, 25-18, 25-16, Sunday in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament  at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Imposing their dreaded system and winning attitude, the Lady Spikers didn’t allow the Lady Falcons to get their bearing, pulling away in the third set, 8-2, en route to their eighth win in 11 matches.

Winning three in a row, La Salle will now need to win just one more game to assure itself of at least a playoff for a Final Four slot. 


Rookie Jolina dela Cruz led the Lady Spikers with 13 points, while fellow new recruit Lourdes Clemente sowed terror by the net, scoring three kill-blocks.

Also-ran Adamson absorbed its 10th defeat in 11 games.
