Saint Benilde stifles Arellano for third win

Behind another explosive outing from transferee Vince Abrot, the College of Saint Benilde Blazers overwhelmed the Arellano University Chiefs, 25-22, 25-22, 25-22, for their second straight win in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The former UE Red Warrior, Abrot tallied 18 points off a blistering 18-for-31 attacking clip. Owen Bacani added 13 markers.

Facing another fellow NCAA squad, the Blazers wanted to make a statement.

“Sabi ko nga sa kanila ngayon pa lang kailangan maganda na ang ipakita namin para pagdating ng NCAA, may confidence na kami. Mahirap din kasi sa NCAA kasi single round lang kami doon so lahat ng laban crucial talaga,” said Benilde head coach Arnold Laniog as his team has now defeated all NCAA teams in the PVL.

The Blazers took early leads in each set, before needing to stave off the Chiefs in the endgame. Laniog pointed at this trend as a point of emphasis heading into their next matches.

“Siyempre, sabi namin sa mga bata na kailangan maging consistent tayo. Sa mga ganoong instance, dapat hindi kami bumibitaw sa mga lamang namin,” he added.

CSB (3-2) faces the UP Fighting Maroons (3-2) on Wednesday at the same venue.

Christian Dela Paz and Jesrael Liberato each tallied 12 points.

Arellano (0-5) takes on the Perpetual Lady Altas (1-4) next Sunday also at the same venue.
