The San Beda University Red Spikers denied fellow NCAA squad Arellano University Chiefs in four sets, 25-23, 22-25, 25-23, 25-16, and clinched their second consecutive victory of the 2018 Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference, Wednesday afternoon at the FilOil Flying V Centre.
After being dominated in scoring skills in their last game against the University of the Philippines, the Mendiola-based squad topped their counterparts on attacks and in serves at 56 and 13, respectively, as opposed to the latter’s 47 and 4.
Jomaru Amagan paced the Red Spikers with 20 points, while fellow wing hitter Jeffrey Losa had 14 markers to tow the Red and White.
Despite the win, head coach Nes Pamilar knows that San Beda has still lots to work on. “Maganda yung ginalaw nila, pero hindi pa convincing,” he said. “May mga simpleng errors lalo na sa communication.”
The Chiefs leaned on the scoring of Demy Lapuz and Christian Dela Paz to lead early in the first three sets, but could not sustain the momentum in the first and third frames to eventually concede. The Arellano wingers ended with 17 and 16 markers, respectively.
The Red Spikers (2-2) will take on the De La Salle Green Spikers (0-4) on August 12 at 9am. On the other hand, the Legarda-based squad (0-4) will face the CSB Blazers the day before at 6pm.
