JRU Lady Bombers end NCAA 95 campaign on high note, send Letran to brink

Dolly Versoza made sure that Jose Rizal University ended its NCAA Season 95 campaign on a positive note, churning out a double-double output to subdue Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 25-17, 18-25, 25-21, 25-13, Monday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Behind Versoza’s 16-point, 19-dig performance, the Lady Bombers concluded their campaign with a 4-5 card. They rolled out the red carpet for seniors Kass Ebuenga and Angelie Bodiongan on a high while pushing the Lady Knights to the brink of elimination.

“Parang nag-fall short kami this season, so hindi namin nakamit ‘yung goal namin. Pero sabi ko lang din, ‘Last game, all-out na lang. At the same time, focus pa rin sa game’,” Versoza said.

True enough, the rest of the Lady Bombers brought their best feet forward.

Sydney Mae Niegos also had a stellar offensive outing with 14 points built on nine hits and four aces, providing ample support to Versoza. Rafaella Jasareno and Riza Rose chimed in 11 markers each.

Meanwhile, Renesa Melgar fanned out 11 excellent sets laced with eight points.

“Sa akin, sayang ‘yung season, it could’ve been better. But it’s also good that we ended with a win. At least positive ‘yung start namin in preparation for next season,” JRU head coach Mia Tioseco said.

Chamberlaine Cunada was the lone bright spot for Letran as her game-high 20-point outing went for naught.

On the other hand, the Lady Knights now have their backs against the wall with a 3-4 card. They would bid their semis hopes farewell in case San Beda defeats Mapua on Tuesday. Nonetheless, they need to bounce back when they return to action on Thursday against the Perpetual Lady Altas at the same venue.
