Lady Pirates disarm Lady Bombers for second win

The Lyceum of the Philippines Lady Pirates overwhelmed the Jose Rizal University Lady Bombers to clinch their second straight win to start the NCAA Season 92 Women’s Volleyball Tournament, 25-23, 25-10, 25-21, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Pauline Orros topped the young Lady Pirates with 12 points. La Rainne Fabay added 11, while skipper Cheril Sindayan provided 10.

The match was decided on the serve, as each team traded turns squandering runs of passes. The Intramuros spikers, however, managed to limit their miscues considerably, while the Lady Bombers gave up 13 service aces and had three of their hits block-killed.

The ladies from Shaw threatened to extend the match after taking an 8-4 lead in the third frame. But the Lady Pirates hacked away at the lead, getting aces in and welcoming JRU’s errors in bunches. The Lady Bombers eventually took a 19-15 advantage and never looked back.

“Bumaba ‘yung level namin ng serve receive noong huling set. Naayos na namin siya noong second set kaya kita naman na inconsistent pa. Ganyan talaga kapag batang team pero maganda na natapos namin ‘yung laban kahit nilamangan kami,” said Lyceum’s decorated head coach Emil Lontoc.

Karen Montojo led the Lady Bombers with 13 points, while Shola Alvarez added 10 markers.

Lyceum (2-0) takes on the San Beda College Lady Red Spikers (1-0) on November 28. JRU (1-1) faces the College of Saint Benilde Lady Blazers (2-0) on November 29.
