Eya Laure calls on UST to treat error-marred game vs Adamson as a harsh lesson

University of Sto. Tomas experienced a disappointing start to its second-round campaign in the UAAP Season 85 Women’s Volleyball Tournament after losing to Adamson University in four sets, 25-11, 21-25, 13-25, 22-25.

Despite producing 17 points, including 11 excellent digs, and 12 excellent receptions, team captain Eya Laure acknowledged that there were still lapses in their game.

However, Laure shared that they would use the loss as motivation to regain their strength and momentum in their upcoming games.

“Siyempre lumalabas pa din yung mga lapses ng bawat isa sa amin.

“And I think etong pagkatalo pa rin naman ‘to, eto pa din ‘yung magiging motivation namin sa mga susunod na games,” the 24-year-old senior spiker said.

Laure also recognized the team’s shortcomings during the game, particularly their service errors, which Adamson was able to take advantage of.

“Number one talaga is ‘yung service namin. As in sobrang dami namin service errors, as in magpupuntos kami, magse-serve ng error. Puntos, serve ng error,” she lamented as UST tallied 32 errors in the contest.

“So pano kami makakabawi kung mismo kami sa sarili namin game, parang pinapatay na kaagad namin.”

Despite the defeat, Laure remains optimistic and more eager to prepare for their next games, particularly their upcoming match against University of the East.

“Siyempre pag hahandain po namin ‘yung next game namin. Respeto sa kalaban. At siyempre, kailangan namin mas makilala pa ‘yung sarili namin, and us individuals para mag work kami as a team,” Laure stated.

With a 5-3 win-loss slate, the Golden Tigresses are currently in the fourth spot of the standings. Laure hopes that their team will learn from their mistakes and bounce back with more convincing wins in the remaining games of the second round.

“This loss will be a lesson for us, for everyone. ‘Di naman para sa iilan lang, pero para sa amin as a team,” she added.

“So maging motivation talaga na hopefully itong second round – ‘yung mga remaining games namin sa second round will be a… parang more convincing wins, and kumabaga ite-take namin as a… parang kumbaga step-by-step namin ite-take – day-by-day.”
