Chiefs romp Knights to keep unbeaten streak

Three matches and still unscathed

The Arellano University Chiefs boosted its stock as they bamboozled the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights in three sets, 25-16, 25-12, 25-15, Friday morning at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Save from that shaky start at the first frame, the Legarda-based squad was dominant throughout the match.

Outside hitter John Cabillan broke out of his slump and finished with 12 points on nine attacks. Kevin Liberato also had 12 on a huge performance at the middle with five blocks.

Team captain Christopher Soriano was pleased of how his team is responding to the twice-a-day training. “Tingin ko po, nag-jejell yung team namin. Buo kaming naglalaro.”

Such was evident as Arellano led Letran in both scoring and non-scoring skills. The Chiefs also limited its errors to 13 as opposed to the latter’s 21.

Knights captain Bobby Gatdula broke double-digits once more, but he was the only one to do so for the Intramuros side.

Arellano (3-0) will try to inch closer to a semifinals slot when they face Jose Rizal University (0-2) on Tuesday, January 16. On the other hand, Letran (0-3) will take on Lyceum of the Philippines (0-2) on Thursday, January 18.

The Scores:

AU 3 – Liberato K 12, Cabillan 12, Lapuz 11, Segovia 7, Dela Paz 6, Soriano 2, Domingo 2, Meneses 1, Liberato J 1, Arellano K 0, Caccam 0, Esguerra L, Blanco L.

CSJL 0 – Gatdula 11, Cistina 4, Ladeon 4, Domingo 4, Alilio 2, Almoguerra 2, Orsini 2, Ramos 0, Tumbali 0, Timbreza L, Centeno L.
