The University of Santo Tomas needed to win against the defending champions to stay in the race for the championship. With the series tied at 3-3, it was Philippine team member Jane Narra giving her team the much needed 7th match win to stay in the championship race.

Philippine Junior team member Colleen Heria and UAAP Season 76 women’s finweight gold medalist Alyssa Bonifacio started the series between two of the deepest teams in the tournament with a bang. The Heria-Bonifacio bout extended into the golden round after being tied at 3-all to end regulation. It was the rookie Heria who would successfully connect first to give UST a 1-0 lead. Last year’s flyweight champion Leight Nuguid edged out Korina Paladin with a final score of 9-7 to tie the series. In a bantamweight match of Philippine team teammates, it was last year’s MVP Nicole Cham outclassing Cleio Banez with a 6-1 win. Apriel Solimen and Camille Bonje, from the green-side, eventually gave DLSU a 3-2 edge with respective victories over Bianca Go and Zay Cajes, both by the final score. With their backs against the wall, Arriane Asegurado dominated the welterweight match against Gabrielle Yunchingta. Asegurado led 7-3 in the opening salvo before winning the match with a score of 10-4. Heavyweights Jane Narra and Paola Amon faced-off in the pivotal 7th match. However, it was Jane Narra’s experience which proved the difference with a resounding win over Amon to give UST a win to end Day 2.
