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.
