Debuting Vince Abrot leads Saint Benilde past San Beda

Transferee Vince Abrot lifted the College of Saint Benilde Blazers in their debut in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference against the San Beda University Red Spikers, 25-21, 15-25, 28-26, 27-25, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Abrot, a former UE Red Warrior, marked 22 points. Roniey Adviento, another forner Red Warrior, managed 11 points.

Benilde puished San Beda on the serve, which game them four aces and coaxed the Red Spikers to 42 errors.

Saint Benilde head coach Arnold Laniog had high hopes after his team’s rousing win.

“Maganda nga ‘yung pinakita namin kasi panalo. Pero, may igaganda pa ‘yung galaw namin,” he said. “Good chance para sa amin ‘yung ganitong tournament na makakuha ng experience and makapag-gel as a team. Hopefully, malayo rin ang marating namin dito.”

St. Benilde (1-0) takes on another NCAA rival in Perpetual (0-1) on August 1 at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Jomaru Amagan topped San Beda with 16 markers while Patrick Pallatao added 12.

San Beda (0-1) tries to recover against Adamson U (1-0) on Wednesday at the same venue.

Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
