ADMU vs NU (0-2)
The first two sets would go to NU, but a 3-0 victory by the duo of Dayao and Lao and the fourth match victory by Matias would force the fifth match. It was NU’s Huab who would finally end the series, prevailing 3-0 over Ateneo’s Rosete, 3-0.
ADMU vs. UP (0-3)
Another opening victory from Uy would open the encounter from the Katipunan-based schools on an exciting note, but the next three matches would all go to UP’s paddlers, 3-0, 3-1, and 3-0.
ADMU vs. FEU (0-4)
FEU’s Igno would prevail 3-0 in the first match, but ever the hero, Uy would bag the second match ater a heated 3-2 duel for Ateneo to keep the fire alive for the Katipunan-based squad. The next two matches however would go to the FEU paddlers, securing the victory for the Morayta-based squad.
ADMU vs DLSU (0-5)

ADMU vs AdU (0-7)
After giving up the first two matches to Adamson, the duo of Lao and Dayao and Crisostomo would manage to bag victories in the third and fourth matches to force the fifth match and give Ateneo the chance to finish the tournament on a high note. However, the fifth match would belong to Adamson’s Enal, routing opponent Rosete to give Adamson the win.
