Perpetual outlasts Arellano for second win

In a rematch of last season’s NCAA Men’s Volleyball finals, the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas reasserted their mastery of the Arellano University Chiefs, taking their second win of the 2018 Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference in four sets, 25-16, 27-25, 24-26, 25-20, Sunday morning at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Reigning NCAA Most Valuable Player Joebert Almodiel paced the Las Pinas-based squad with 14 attacks, two blocks, and an ace for 17 overall, while fellow wing hitter Ridzuan Muhali finished with 15 points.

At the end of the contest, the Altas dominated the Chiefs in all scoring skills with 61 attacks, 12 blocks, and three aces, as opposed to the llatter’s 45, six, and two, respectively. It is just the errors of Perpetual that kept Arellano at the thick of things.

This is something assistant coach Marcelo Joaquin wanted his new-look squad to address going into the last games of the tournament and into the NCAA season.

“Sa game kasi namin today, inconsistent pa rin yung galaw namin. Nara-rattle pa rin ‘pag dikit. Yung maturity yung kailangan naming ayusin,” he shared.

The Altas (2-5) will face the De La Salle University Green Spikers (2-5) on Wednesday, August 22 at 10am.

Demmy Lapuz took the cudgels of scoring for the Christian Dela Paz-less Chiefs with 16 markers.

Arellano (0-7) will battle the UST Tiger Spikers (6-0) in the same day’s opening tussle at 8am.

The Scores:

UPHSD 3 – Almodiel 17, Muhali 15, Rosales 13, Ramos 12, Ramirez 12, Casana 4, Bation 3, Enarciso 0, Atentar L, Go L.
