La Salle cruises past San Beda for maiden win

The De La Salle University Green Spikers finally cliched their first win in their post-Arjay Onia and Raymark Woo era after a stunning sweep of the San Beda College Red Spikers, 25-23, 25-18, 25-21, Sunday morning at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

Senior winger Cris Dumago continued his leadership by example mantra, pacing the Taft-based squad with 16 points off 15 attacks and a block. Middle blocker Kieffer Reyes added nine markers, two came from rejections at the net.

Despite ending the match with no service aces, the Green and White did well on that department to disrupt the system plays of San Beda. It was only the errors near the endgame of each of the sets that kept the Red Spikers in the thick of things, coupled by some successful attacks from Jomaru Amagan and Angelo Torres.

Nonetheless, setter Wayne Marco did well enough to steer La Salle to the victory.

Assistant coach Christian Antiporta, who sat as head coach for the match for coach Norman Miguel, gladly welcomed the victory after losing Onia and Woo to graduation. He shared, “Yun nga first win; At least alam na nung mga bata kung paano manalo.”

The mentor added that almost half of the team are rookies.

With that situation, Anitporta also said that, “Ang purpose naman namin [sa pagsali] is to game in-game experience.”

The 1-4 Green Spikers will face the National University Bulldogs (4-0) on Wednesday, August 15 at 9:00am.

Amagan led the Legarda-based team with 14 points, while Torres pinched in 11.
