Ivana Agudo, FEU Lady Tamaraws run past TIP for first win


Ivana Agudo and the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws made swift work of the Technological Institute of the Philippines Lady Engineers, 25-13, 25-22, 25-16, in the 2019 PVL Collegiate Conference, Sunday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Following a shock defeat to St. Benilde in their conference opener, the Lady Tamaraws came out firing on all cylinders. They staved off the Lady Engineers in the gruelling 71-minute match.

“First loss, pero we took it as positive way naman [na] maagang nangyari,” said FEU head coach George Pascua about the St. Benilde defeat. “Basic lang. Service-receive lang naman eh. Kung ano yung kinatalo namin noong first game, yun yung winorkout namin.”

Agudo hammered down 12 attacks and netted four service aces en route to a game-high 16 points.

Meanwhile, FEU rookie Shiela Mae Kiseo – who missed in FEU’s first game due to beach volleyball duties – announced her arrival. The former Baby Tamaraw tallied 14 points, all but two coming from attacks, alongside nine excellent digs.

France Ronquillo supplied 10 markers. Meanwhile, Gel Cayuna dished out 11 excellent sets on top of seven points, which included four aces. Lois Florendo collected 11 excellent receptions and 10 excellent digs to patrol the floor for FEU.

The Lady Tamaraws went on an offensive onslaught at the expense of the Lady Engineers. The former outgunned the former in the attacking and service departments, posting a 42-25 differential in attacks, and 14-7 in service aces.

On the other hand, no Lady Engineer graced twin-digit territory.

Wielyn Margallo led her team in scoring with nine markers, while Khem Consencino managed eight for TIP, who fell to a 0-2 slate.
