The duo of Kim Fajardo and Thea Demecillo of De La Salle University opened the third day of the UAAP Season 77 women’s beach volleyball tournament with a thrilling three-set finish over the National University Lady Bulldogs, 21-17, 20-22, and 15-9, Wednesday at UE Caloocan.
The spikers from La Salle dominated the first set, but a fired up NU squad featuring Jaja Santiago and Fatima General would return to the sandcourt, pushing the fiery La Salle to a 20-20 deadlock. The NU duo would rally to force La Salle to give up two straights points to take the set, 22-20, and force a third set. It was La Salle’s turn to dominate once more, as the eagle-eyed La Sallian finished the set with a 15-9 victory, finding the right touches to get their spikes to cut through the taller NU’s blockade.
