FEU dashes La Salle for first win

The young Far Eastern University Tamaraws made quick work of the De La Salle University Green Spikers, 25-16, 25-20, 25-23, to notch their first win in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

FEU continued to play without UAAP Season 80 captain Richard Solis and starting open hitter Jude Garcia, as the pair gears up for the UAAP Season 81 Beach Volleyball tourney in September.

In their stead, rookie Mark Calado took charge. The FEU-FERN standout tallied 15 points on 10-for-20 attacking. Middle blocker JP Bugaoan added 10 markers.

‘Yung nakita sa ginawa ng mga bata is nagawa nila ‘yung inensayo namin. ‘Yun naman ‘yung deal namin,” said FEU head coach Rey Diaz. “Individually, nakikita naman namin ‘yung improvement. Ibig sabihin, nagiging effective ‘yung program and ituloy lang namin.”

The Tamaraws played efficiently through the first two sets, pulling away using their focused blocking. With the third set turning into a close affair, FEU found enough clutch defensive plays to close the match without a deuce.

Team captain Cris Dumago topped the Green Spikers with 15 points and was the only one on his squad in double-digits.

The Tamaraws (1-2) take on the unbeaten National University (3-0) on August 12 at the same venue. La Salle (0-3) take on San Beda (1-2), also on August 12.
