Extending their strong start from the opening weekend, the University of Santo Tomas Golden Spikers mauled hosts University of the East Red Warriors in two sets, 21-16, and 21-12, in only twenty-eight minutes.
The statuesque duo of Kris Roy Guzman and Mark Alfarara had no problem getting their spikes to fall against UE’s Carlo Almario and Edward Composano, who struggled to find a way to block UST’s blitz. UST errors would help UE keep pace with their aggressive opponents, but the win would go to the spikers from Esapana.
Total match time: 28 mins.

Last year’s runner-ups the University of Santo Tomas Tiger Spikers proved themselves the team to beat, cruising past the still winless De La Salle University Green Spikers in two sets, 21-16, 21-8.
The first substitution of the day would come from La Salle, as rookie Jopet Movido would suit up to replace Mike Frey, who had played in La Salle’s game against Adamson University earlier in the day. The first set would open on a promising note for the Green Spikers, as UST spikers Mark Alfarara and Kris Roy Guzman found themselves giving up point after point due to several errors. However, La Salle’s Dimayuga and Movido would struggle to score from their attacks, and would find themselves trailing soon enough. The fiery Alfarara and Guzman would close out the first set, 21-16. The UST duo would once again be plagued by errors, with uncontrolled spikes causing the ball to fall beyond the line. La Salle’s offense would continue to stganate however. With La Salle unable to score from their own spikes, Guzman and Alfarara would walk away with a 21-8 victory in the set to end UST’s day.
