Perpetual cruises to 4th straight win; Mapua outlasts JRU

Defending NCAA Men’s Volleyball champions University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas continued to soar above the competition, at the halfway point of the Season 94 tournament.

In a match that lasted only 65 minutes, Louie Ramirez and the Altas whitewashed the Lyceum of the Philippines University Pirates, 25-20, 25-20, 27-25.

With decorated head coach Sammy Acaylar tinkering with his lineup by the third set, Juvic Colonia – who had 10 points in the contest – and the rest of the Pirates tried to take a set.

But the veteran presence of Joebert Almodiel, Ridzuan Muhali, and Gabriel Casana restored order to secure the sweep.

Louie Ramirez led Perpetual with 10 markers, built on seven kills and four blocks.

Perpetual remain on top of the standings with a 4-0 record, while dropping Lyceum to 1-3.

In the second game, the Mapua University Cardinals relied on the heroics of Mark Egan to outlast the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers, 27-25, 25-22, 21-25, 20-25, 15-12.

Egan poured in a career-high 26 points on 19 kills, five blocks, and two aces, to carry Mapua to an even 2-2 slate.

But it was not just Egan who lifted Mapua, as Raje Hizon added 17 markers as well.

This wasted JRU’s comeback attempt, which saw five Heavy Bombers score in double-digits. Patrick Rabaja, Arjay Ausina, and June Laxine had 18, 17, and 16 markers respectively.

JRU caught a boost, as Mapua committed 36 errors.

The Cardinals retain fifth place with an even 2-2 slate, while JRU drop to a tie for last place with a 1-3 record.
