Lady Red Spikers eke out tight win over Lady Altas

Going through two gauntlet sets, the San Beda College Lady Red Spikers survived a tough straight-set challenge from the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Lady Altas, 28-26, 25-18, 29-27, for their second win in NCAA Season 93 at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Both teams plodded through a slow match, filled with long rallies. The Lady Red Spikers got the edge in the first set after a Perptual error and Nieza Viray off-speed hit gave them the edge in a deuce.

San Beda found their groove in the second set, burying the Lady Altas in a 20-14 hole and never looking back. The Mendiola-based program almost had a clear path to victory, taking a 24-22 lead in the third set. Perpetual, however, pulled clutch points from Lourdes Clemente to force another deuce. San Beda captain Cesca Racraquin pulled her team to the win, slipping in the match’s last two points off hits.

“Malaking challenge for us ‘yung Perpetual so we’re just very happy that we went through that and won,” Racraquin said after scoring 13 points.

One-half of the Viray twins, Nieza topped all scorers with 20 points while setter Rebecca Cuevas tallied 37 excellents sets.
