Adamson Soaring Falcons stay perfect, sweep UE

With Pao Pablico still leading the way, the Adamson University Soaring Falcons remain on top of the UAAP Season 81 Men’s Volleyball standings after drubbing the University of the East Red Warriors, 25-19, 25-19, 25-23, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Adamson’s gritty floor defense lured the Red Warriors into 28 errors. Meanwhile, the Falcons only surrendered 18 giveaways. Adamson were also terrific on serve reception, fielding 35 excellent receptions in 51 attempts.

Graduating skipper Pao Pablico continued to lead the Falcons, tallying 15 points off 13 attacks, a block and an ace. Leo Miranda added 11.

“Kahit sino po kalaban namin, alam namin na wala kaming room mag-relax,” said Pablico of their efficient performance against UE.

Facing defending champions National University (2-1) on Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, he knows the Falcons will need to push harder to maintain their 3-0 start.

“Mas matangkad nga po sila, kaya kailangan ibang klaseng sipag at focus ang ipakita namin para magtuluy-tuloy ‘yung panalo namin,” the reigning PVL MVP added.

Middle blocker Lloyd Josafat topped University of the East with 13 points from nine attacks and four blocks. Opposite hitter Clifford Inoferio was held to eight points.

UE (1-2), meanwhile, look to recover against the Ateneo De Manila University (1-2) on Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

AdU (3) – Pablico 15, Miranda 11, Alvarez 6, Gudoy 5, Jimenez 5, Alicando 3, Bello 2, Labang 0, Nuguid 0, Valdez (L)
