UST nets second win, sweeps Perpetual

Behind another balanced showing, the University of Santo Tomas Golden Tigresses clipped the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Lady Altas, 25-23, 25-22, 25-16, in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Tigresses struggled to fend off the Lady Altas in the first two sets. Tied at 21, rookie wunderkind Eya Laure scored three of UST’s last four points to shut down the first set. Perpetual then wasted a 20-18 gap in the second frame, couging up four errors in UST’s last seven markers.

By the third set, UST waltzed to a 16-7 lead to put the match out of doubt.

“‘Yun na nga, slow start, medyo nagkakapaan pa ang mga bata kanina,” thought UST head coach Kungfu Reyes.

“Ganoon din sa Perps, ano lang kami, score kami ng isa, score sila ng isa, error kami, error ang kabila. Ganoon ang naging flow ng laro kaya taas-baba, taas-baba lang. Hanggang sa dulo, so nagkakatalo na lang pagdating ng 21, 22, doon nagkaka-angatan,” the enlisted Army personnel furthered.

Laure finished with 12 points and played setter towards the end of the third set to seal the win. Fil-Italian Milena Alessandrini added 11 markers.

The Tigresses (2-0) take on San Beda (0-1) on Sunday at the same venue.

Aurora Tripoli topped the Lady Altas with 14 points, but was the lone Perpetualite in double-digits.

Perpetual (0-2) try to snap their funk on Saturday when they face the University of the Philippines (0-0) also at the same venue.
