Lady Bombers outclass Lady Knights to snap skid

The Jose Rizal University Lady Bombers disposed of the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Lady Knights in four sets, 25-20, 24-26, 25-21, 25-19, to carve their third win of the season, Wednesday afternoon at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Team captain Shola Alvarez unloaded 25 points off 22 attacks to lead three Lady Bombers in double digits. Setter MG Rivera likewise had 45 excellent sets and nine markers for the Mandaluyong team, six of which came from service line.

The Lady Bombers took the initiative in all of the sets in the match. Nonetheless, errors from their part and efficient middle plays from Letran led to the third-set loss.

Mikaela Lopez had a huge outing at the middle for the blue-shirts with 23 points, 19 off attacks and two each of blocks and serves.

JRU head coach Mia Tioseco stressed that there had been no additional motivation for her wards in the match. “Kung ano lang naman yung normal na pinapagawa ko sa kanila. They just have to be vigilant in doing them.”

The mentor also added that the Lady Bombers need to be consistent and work on their lapses. She particularly noted that, “Kulang kami sa end game. Kaya kailangan nilang makita na yun ang kailangang i-fix namin, yung end game.”

The Lady Bombers (3-5) hope to address their closing-out woes as they end their season against the Perpetual Lady Altas (4-3) on Friday, January 20. On the other hand, the Lady Knights (1-7) close out theirs with a battle against the EAC Lady Generals (1-7) on Monday, January 23.
