Cardinals pick up crucial win, derail Generals

The Mapua University Cardinals posted their second straight sweep of the season, dominating the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals, 25-17, 25-23, 25-20, to take their fourth win, Thursday afternoon at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Outside hitter Mark Jason Egan posted 11 points to once more pace the Cards, but it was the breakout game of middle blocker Samyr Navera that stood out after little more than an hour.

The senior center registered 11 points off six blocks, three attacks, and two aces, reflecting how Mapua pulled off the win.

The Cardinals made good use of all the scoring skills in crucial portions of each of the sets, with that tight second set as prime example.

Navera stressed how crucial this victory was and said, “Sobrang importante ng game na ‘to kasi isang game na lang [makukuha] na namin ‘yung main goal na maka-Final Four.”

Joshua Mina led the Generals again with 17 points.

The now 4-2 Mapua will shoot for their third straight win when they face the winless Jose Rizal University (0-5) on Sunday. EAC will try to revive their dwindling semis hopes as they take on the Colegio de San Juan de Letran (0-5).

The Scores:

MU 3 – Egan 11, Navera 11, Pertierra 10, Pagulong 8, Damian 5, Evangelista 3, Bondoc L.

EAC 0 – Mina 17, Lim 10, Ilano 9, Rasing 6, Castellano 2, Garcia 0, Panoy 0, Magadan L.
