After an opening day loss, the Tacloban Fighting Warays streaked to their second win, mincing the Akari-Adamson Lady Falcons, 25-21, 25-12, 25-22, in the PVL Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The veteran-laiden Tacloban showed their composure against Adamson, who were without starting opposite hitter Eli Soyud. The Warays staved off a late run in the first set behind steady floor defense and attacking fron Jovielyn Prado.

Dominant in the second frame, Tacloban again warded off a feisty Lady Falcons side in the final set. Trailing 19-21, Tacloban caught breaks from Adamson’s errors and bad receptions. The Warays took six of the next seven points to close the match.

“‘Yung dalawang araw na pinractice namin medyo nakukuha na naman (ang systema) eh. Ang sabi ko lang kailangan magtuluy-tuloy lang kasi marami kaming lapses noong nakaraan sa depensa talaga,” remarked Tacloban head coach Nes Pamilar.

Arellano U standout Jovie Prado continued to lead Tacloban, tallying 18 points off 15 attacks and three blocks to go with 10 digs. FEU Lady Tamaraw Heather Guino-O added 13 markers.

Chiara Permentilla took the lead for the Lady Falcons, managing 11 points, while Bernadette Flora added seven markers 10 digs and 13 excellent receptions.

Tacloban (2-1) next face the Creamline Cool Smashers (0-1) on Wednesday at the same venue. Adamson (0-1) will take on the Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors (2-1) also on Wednesday.
