MANILA, Philippines-University of Santo Tomas didn’t want to get dragged into another protracted battle, thumping University of the East in straight sets, 25-17, 25-16, 25-17, on Wednesday at the UAAP Season 85 women’s volleyball.

Eya Laure pummeled the UE floor at every opportunity and had 15 attacks out of her game-high 17 points to lead the Tigresses in a badly needed win following a recent defeat at the hands of the Adamson Lady Falcons.


“We started with a loss in the first round and as well as in the second round. Good thing we were able to bounce back on both occasions. It’s difficult to lose two games in a row,” said UST coach Kungfu Reyes.


“We still have many things to fix as the level of competition intensifies. The team that commits more unforced errors will be on the losing end,” added Reyes.

They seemed headed to a trouble-free sixth victory in nine games before the Lady Warriors put the Tigresses on their toes in the final set similar to what UE did in their previous meeting where the latter took a set that extended the match.

Staring at another defeat, Janeca Lana and KC Cepada pushed UE upfront, 11-7, in the third frame before Laure and Renee Penafiel combined forces that put out the fire.

Penafiel scored all of her four points during that fiery 10-1 UST windup that dealt the winless Lady Warriors their ninth consecutive setback.

“We committed lapses that we have to work on and be ready in our succeeding games,” said Laure.
