Jaja Santiago, Saitama bounce back, beat Toyota in four sets

KYOTO, JAPAN — Jaja Santiago bounced back from a poor showing last game, helping lift Saitama over the winless Toyota Auto Body, 25-14, 25-23, 26-28, 25-17, in the 2020-21 Japan V. League Division 1 Women’s Tournament at the Shimadzu Arena Kyoto, Saturday.

After getting just five points in a straight-set loss against JT Marvelous last Sunday, Santiago went back to her smashing ways. She had 11 points on 10 attacks and a block in the victory.

Mami Uchiseto led the way for Ageo Medics with 20 markers. Meanwhile, Canadian Shainah Joseph — who once played as a Sta. Lucia import in Philippine Superliga — followed suit with 17 points.

Saitama improved its win-loss standing at 3-4, good for the seventh seed in the 12-team league.

Queenseis’ Indre Sorokaite had 20 markers, while Aya Watanabe recorded 16 points in the loss.

Toyota Auto Body slid to 0-5.

Saitama looks to rise to .500 tomorrow when they face the 5-1 NEC Red Rockets at 2:00 pm at the same venue.
