Three-time defending champions De La Salle University Lady Spikers gave their most imposing performance of the UAAP Season 81 Women’s Volleyball tournament, flattening the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws, 25-15, 25-19, 26-24, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Lady Spikers dominated the first two sets, grabbing a 16-6 lead in the first set. They then blitzed FEU, 22-15, in the second frame. The third set turned into a close game, as FEU turned an 8-1 deficit into a 17-all draw.

“Well, first two sets nagulat ‘yung FEU. Grinab namin ‘yung opportunity na habang ganoon ‘yung kinikilos nila, capitalize namin,” pointed out La Salle head coach Ramil De Jesus.

The Lady Tamaraws eventually took a 20-19 lead following a spree of La Salle errors. FEU gave La Salle the lead back, 23-22, after two Jerrili Malabanan miscues. Errors from Celine Domingo and Lycha Ebon then ended a prolonged deuce.

FEU ended up surrendering 28 errors, while La Salle has just 16.

“‘Yung last set, eventually, nagkaroon na ‘yung FEU ng connection. Kinapitan lang namin ‘yung third set,” the decorated mentor continued.

Batchmates Tin Tiamzon and May Luna led La Salle with 13 and 10 points, respectively.

Rookie Lycha Ebon was the lone Lady Tamaraw in double figures with 10 markers.

La Salle closed the first round in the top four with a 5-2 record, while FEU dropped to 4-3.
