Adamson sweeps Saint Benilde, loses Jema Galanza for conference

The Adamson University Lady Falcons stayed on top of Group B of the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference with a rousing 25-19, 25-20, 25-17 win over the College of Saint Benilde Lady Blazers, but lost captain Jema Galanza to a gruesome ankle injury at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Going up for a block early in the third set, Galanza stepped on an opponent’s foot upon landing and twisted her right ankle perpendicular to her leg.

The Lady Falcons still wound up with the win and clinched a semis berth. However, they will likely not have Galanza, who had nine points before going down, for the rest of the conference.

“I don’t know. I think she’s done for the season,” said Adamson head coach Airess Padda about her ward.

As of press time, no official diagnosis has been made, but Padda is not optimistic about Galanza’s status for UAAP Season 80 which begins on February 2018.

Transferee Eli Soyud led the Lady Falcons with 18 points while rookie open hitter Chiara Permentilla added 10 markers.

Adamson (4-0) ends their elimination round campaign on October 2 against the San Beda Lady Red Spikers (2-2).

Ranya Musa topped the winless Lady Blazers with 14 markers while fellow middle blocker Rachel Austero added 13.

Saint Benilde will end its campaign against the TIP Lady Engineers (0-4) on September 30.
