/ 12:04 PM January 05, 2013

MANILA, Philippines — Adamson barely got through University of the Philippines, 25-19, 17-25, 26-24, 21-25, 15-13, Saturday morning in the resumption of the 75th UAAP men’s volleyball at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

The Falcon levelled their record to 3-3 but it wasn’t easy as the Maroons, despite a losing slate, forged a deciding fifth set, pushing Adamson to its limit.

Adamson however, mustered enough strength to elude the upset in a seesaw encounter that lasted an hour and 44 minutes.

Skipper Ron Jay Galang showcased his power in chipping in 25 points — all on kills — to lead Adamson while Amando Maleon added 12 hits.
