Ateneo clinches twice-to-beat
Ateneo grabbed a twice-to-beat incentive while La Salle put one hand on that same playoff bonus after crushing their respective opponents on Wednesday in UAAP women’s volleyball at Filoil Flying V Centre.
Ateneo routed Adamson, 25-16, 28-26, 25-17, while La Salle ripped University of the East, 25-17, 25-16, 25-19, to tighten their hold on top of the standings.
Ateneo is now assured that it only needs to win once against its semifinal foe to book a finals berth. But the Lady Eagles could still lose the No. 1 seed if they lose their last outing and La Salle wins its last assignment.
Ateneo will battle nothing-to-lose National University while La Salle will square off with with Far Eastern U on Sunday.
