Adamson got the first victory in the team tie Christine Garin winning over UE’s Erycka Labay, 21-10 and 21-16.

Clydel Pada of the Lady Falcons also got the better of Lyra Rosal in the second match of the team tie. Rosal took the opening game with Pineda having problems with reception early on, 21-15. Pada then had a hot streak to pull of the comeback thanks to her creative placement. The Lady Falcon won the two remaining sets convincingly, 21-16 and 21-9.

With a sense of urgency, Erycka Labay and Pamela Fernandez took the third match against the Adamson duo of Christine Garin and Alyssa San Pedro to keep UE’s hopes alive. The teams went toe-to-toe for the majority of the game, but Labay and Fernandez had more in the tank as they take the game in three sets, 12-21, 21-17, and 26-24 respectively.
