The duo from host school UE found themselves unable to keep up with the fiery duo of Fajardo and Demecillo, who made sure to turn back every serve and force their opponents to give up error after error. With their defense non-existent and their offense unable to take-off, the Lady Warriors could only watch as the Lady Archers escaped with the win after only twenty-seven minutes.

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.
