Coming off a lopsided defeat at the hands of the National University Lady Bulldogs last week, the FEU Lady Tamaraws came out more focused in their next match as they convincingly notched a straight sets win, 25-21, 25-6, 25-17, against the College of Saint Benilde Lady Blazers earlier at the Filoil Flying V Arena.
Bernadeth Pons led all scorers with 14 point, 2 blocks, and 5 digs, while guest player Royse Tubino followed up with 9 points.
“Mas na-challenge kami noong natalo kami against NU. Mas naging constructive lahat para sa amin. Sabi ko nga sa mga bata noong pagkatalo namin sa NU, wala tayong dapat ikahiya kasi lumaban tayo ng maayos,” FEU Head Coach Shaq Delos Santos shared. “Kung hindi tayo nanalo, ang standing namin nandoon pa rin. Mas paghandaan namin ang quarterfinals at kalimutan na namin (yung talo).”
In addition, FEU also flashed its lethal form in the second set by coming up with huge scoring runs to dampen the opposition’s morale. Led by the constant smashing of Tubino, FEU was able to maintain a double-digit lead throughout that set and execute their sets flawlessly.
“Ang momentum napunta sa amin lalo na ang service namin. Iyon kasi ang number one problem namin,” Delos Santos added. “Sa second set I think dalawa or isa lang ang mistake namin kaya lumayo ang score.”
With FEU gaining a morale boost in this game, they now set their sights in their upcoming match against the DLSU-Dasmarinas Lady Patriots this coming August 23, 3:00 pm, at the Filoil Flying V Arena.
“Siyempre hindi namin kailangan maging kampanta sa laban namin sa kanila. Handa rin iyan at lahat ng team gusto talunin ang bawat isa,” he ended. “Hindi kami pwedeng magrelax.”
