Women’s Doubles Match 2: Jhayvin May Dizon and Loverly Magallano (NU) def. Danica San Ignacio and Danica Rose Peligrino (DLSU); 2:0

DLSU 3 – 1 NU (DLSU wins)


With nothing to lose, and a game that has no bearing for the shuttlers from Jhocson, Jhayvin Dizon and Loverly Magallano played spoilers to the DLSU pairing of Danica San Ignacio and Danica Peligrino. It should be noted that every match and set wins are crucial in playoff seedings. After a 9-9 deadlock in the 1st set, Dizon and Magallano of NU would steal the 1st game away from Dizon and Magallano with a score of 21-17. The 2nd set saw San Ignacio and Peligrino fall into a 14-19 deficit then a 20-15 hole. The tandem from Taft would then blitz their way to score 7 straight points to force a 3rd game. The rally from the end of the 2nd game would take its toll on San Ignacio and Peligrino however as they were slow on their feet all through-out the deciding set to give the pair of Dizon and Magallano a 21-13 win and a match win for the NU-side.


Aggregate Score: San Ignacio (27) and Peligrino (25) 52 – Dizon (29) and Magallano (32) 62

Total Match Time: 45 mins


Women’s Singles Match 3: Loverly Dezelle Magallano (NU) def. Janine Peligrino (DLSU); 2:0

DLSU 3 – 2 NU (DLSU wins)


Janina Peligrino was looking to avenge the loss of her pair against the pair that included Loverly Magallano. Tired from the doubles match, Magallano would fall to Peligrino in the first game 21-15. The 2nd game saw Peligrino rally back from a 7 to 12 hole, to take a 14-12 lead midway 2nd game. Magallano would then bounce back to take the set 21-19. The 3rd set would be all Loverly Magallano though as a clearly fatigued Janine Peligrino could not keep up with the pace of still energized Magallano. Loverly Magallano would take the set, 21-13, and the match.


Aggregate Score: Magallano 57 – Peligrino 53

Total Match Time: 45 mins
