Despite both teams boasting similar superb records of 6 – 1, what hoped to be a close match turned into a blowout as NU dominated ADU early and never let up.
NU was able to jump to an early 5 – 2 start, and they never looked back. The lead grew to 18 – 10, and despite Adamson’s attempts to delay the inevitable, NU took the 1st set, 21 – 13. The 2nd set was pretty much a repeat of the 1st, with a NU taking a big 10 – 4 lead over ADU. The deficit ballooned to 8 at the 15 – 7 mark, and ADU eventually fell, 21 – 14.
With this win, NU was able to avenge their sole loss in the elimination round and claim 2nd place in the final four. NU earned a twice-to-beat advantage over ADU.
Total match time: 32 mins.
