Arellano setter Princess Verutiao tossed 11 excellent sets. She also contributed four of her team’s six aces for six points. Charmina Dino managed five markers while Joy Batindaan, Mika Juanich, and Carla Donato had four points each.

“Sinabi ko lang naman sa team ko na everytime magkakaroon ka ng opportunity na maglaro lalo na sa venue na to, dapat yan, kumbaga i-grab mo kasi maraming gusto maglaro dito e,” Javier added.

For the Lady Engineers, Khem Consencino was the lone bright spot. She scattered five points, six excellent digs, and 11 excellent receptions.

Arellano shall next face Lyceum on Saturday while TIP looks to bounce back when it squares off against FEU. Both games will be played at the same venue.
