Genesis, Adamson out to end heartbreaks on final day of elims

Adamson University has played three matches that went the distance and go full length at five sets.

Unfortunately, the Lady Falcons always ended at the receiving end of a tough loss in those marathon matches, failing to execute down the stretch.

Just last Saturday, Adamson went down hard against Ateneo de Manila University, 26-24, 21-25, 19-25, 25-23, 17-19.

They also bowed to University of Santo Tomas in both rounds, both five-setters.

But despite the results not being in its favor, it still benefited Adamson.UAAP-84-WVB-ADU-vs.-UP-Lerma-Giron-2530-scaled Genesis, Adamson out to end heartbreaks on final day of elims AdU News UAAP Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Kasi nakailang five-setter kami na games. Dalawa sa UST, tapos sa Ateneo, so sobrang ‘yung mga games na ‘yun tumatak talaga sa’min. Until now nakatatak pa siya,” shared head coach Lerma Giron after their 25-18, 16-25, 25-22, 25-17 crucial win over University of the Philippines, Tuesday.

“Sabi ko nga sa mga players, wounded warriors tayo, kahit sugatan, kailangan patuloy na lumaban.”

And those experiences might come in handy on Thursday heading into the final day of the elimination round as the Lady Falcons need to win to clinch at least a playoff spot for the fourth seed.

A tough challenge is ahead though as they will be facing the red-hot De La Salle University, which is riding on a five-game winning streak and needing a win as well to secure a twice-to-beat advantage in the semifinals.

Adamson and Ateneo are currently tied for the fourth spot at 7-6. The former will battle the Lady Spikers at 12:30 pm, while the latter will clash with the Fighting Maroons at 7 pm, both on Thursday.

“Siyempre gusto natin talaga, tatrabahuhin natin talaga ng todo. Gusto natin maipasok ang Adamson sa Final Four,” said Giron despite the tall task ahead.

And for Lady Falcons leader Trisha Genesis, she and her squad do not want any downers anymore.

Three five-setter defeats are enough. No more heartbreaks.

“‘Yung sakit na naramdaman namin noon (sa five-setters), ayaw na namin maramdaman ulit e. Ayaw na naming ulitin ‘yung mga pangyayaring ‘yon,” said the 2019 PVL Collegiate Conference MVP.
