Jaja Santiago limited to four as Ageo Medics still sweeps Hitachi

Saitama Ageo Medics got back on the winning track, toppling Hitachi Rivale in straight sets, 25-19, 25-19, 25-22, in the 2020-21 Japan V.League Division 1 Women’s Tournament at the Ota City General Gymnasium, Saturday.

Jaja Santiago had a quiet night with four points but nevertheless, enough to help Ageo Medics secure the win.

Mami Uchiseto once again topscored for Saitama with 15 markers while Shainah Joseph added 12 points, all from spikes.

The victory pushed Saitama’s win-loss record to 4-5, good for sixth place in the 12-team league.

Miwako Nagauchi was the lone bright spot for Hitachi with 12 points built on 10 attacks, a block, and an ace.

Rivale dropped to 2-5 in the loss, tied with Toyota Auto Body for eighth place.

Ageo Medics will look to make it two in a row on Sunday, Nov. 22, 12 noon at Plaza Ishikawa against cellar-dweller PFU Bluecats.
