Lady Chiefs stamp class against Lady Knights, extend streak to 15

The reigning NCAA Women’s Volleyball champion Arellano University has yet to drop a set

It was another dominant sweep for the Lady Chiefs after they clobbered the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Lady Knights, 25-17, 25-17, 25-12, Friday early afternoon at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Usual suspects Necole Ebuen and Regine Arocha combined for 22 points to pace the defending champions. Ebuen, a rookie, had three blocks, while senior Arocha registered seven attacks.

Arellano, however, finished with 20 errors, mostly in the tail end of the sets to keep the Lady Knights afloat. Nonetheless, the huge 39-18 advantage on attacks more than made up for it.

With its record, Chiefs’ head coach Obet Javier still made it clear that the squad is not taking its chances. “Basta kami, one game at a time. Kung sino yung kalaban namin, yun and paghahandaan namin.”

Thus, the titleholders (3-0) will try to extend its 15-match winning streak when they battle the 1-1 Jose Rizal University on Tuesday.

Glayssa Torres ended with seven markers to lead Letran, who at 1-2 will face the Lyceum of the Philippines (0-2) on Thursday.

The Scores:

AU 3 – Ebuen 11, Arocha 11, Esguerra 8, Prado 7, Verutiao 5, Balanoba 4, Marzan 2, Donato 2, Torres 2, Ramirez 0, Liu 0, Bello 0, Flores L, Buemia L.

CSJL 0 – Torres 7, Parin 6, Simborio 4, Barrinuevo 3, Abitan 2, Urriza 2, Bangcola 1, Mendoza 1, Larioque L.
