The University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Lady Altas stamped their class after dominating the Mapua Institute of Technology Lady Cardinals in three sets, 25-15, 25-7, 25-19, Monday morning at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Altas outclassed the Cardinals, doubling the latter’s spikes 32 to 16. Perpetual also had a better game at the net with eight blocks and 11 service aces.

Perpetual’s head coach Sammy Acaylar praised his players’ heads-up performance in several aspects to get this win.
The mentor shared, “We just [went] back to the basics. We focused on service receive and defensive pattern. Of course, there is a little adjustments on the set plays.”
Acaylar also shared that he keeps on reminding the girls to play consistenly well in preparation for tougher matches ahead. “Sabi ko na wag naming i-underestimate yung mga kalaban namin. Just keep on fighting.”
Dianne Latayan paced the Cardinals with eight points.
