Jaja Santiago, Ageo Medics advance to V.League fifth place game

Jaja Santiago and Saitama Ageo Medics will have a shot at fifth place after stretching their winning streak to six games.

Ageo Medics took care of business, dumping Hitachi in four sets, 25-23, 21-25, 26-24, 25-14, in the 5th to 8th ranking round of the 2020-21 Japan V.League Division 1 women’s tournament at the Saitama Prefecture Budokan, Saturday.

Saitama will face the winner of the Okayama-Hisamitsu match later at 2:30 pm. The battle for fifth takes place tomorrow.

The 6-foot-5 Filipina middle blocker continued to shine for Ageo Medics, tallying 13 points including four block kills.

Shainah Joseph led the charge this time with 20 markers, while Yuri Yoshino chimed in 18 points, all from attacks.

Mami Uchiseto added 15 markers while Kyoko Aoyagi also breached twin digits with 12.

Japanese-Kenyan Fuyumi Okumu Oba was the lone bright spot for Rivale with 26 points on 55 attempts.

Hannah Tapp and Rui Nonaka chipped in 11 markers apiece in the losing cause.

Hitachi still has a chance to finish in seventh place.
