Jaja Santiago, Ageo Medics vent ire on Toyota in V.League

Jaja Santiago and Saitama Ageo Medics vented their ire on Toyota Auto Body after a tough loss against league-leader Toray last week.

This as Ageo Medics put a stop to the Queenseis’ three-game winning streak, 25-23, 25-15, 26-24, in the 2020-21 Japan V.League Division 1 Women’s Tournament, Saturday at the Saitama City Memorial Gymnasium.

The 6-foot-5 Santiago put on a defensive clinic this time, accounting for half of Saitama’s blocks with five to go along with four spikes for nine points in the win.

In a balanced attack, Mami Uchiseto was the lone double-digit scorer for the victors with 13. Yuri Yoshino and Kyōko Aoyagi both dropped nine markers as well.

With the straight-sets win, Ageo Medics hiked their win-loss slate to 8-8, tied with Okayama Seagulls for fifth place with 25 points apiece.

Toyota shot themselves on the foot, committing 24 errors while Saitama only had 10.

Italian import Indre Sorokaite did the heavy lifting for the Queenseis with 17 points on a poor 33.3 attacking efficiency rate.

Hinata Shigehara and Koho Hara both got nine points as Toyota slid to 6-10 for the eighth seed.

Saitama looks to make it two in a row when they face Himeji tomorrow, 12 pm, at the same venue.
