Defending champions University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas toppled a contender; while the Colegio San Juan de Letran Knights earned their first win in dramatic fashion in the NCAA Season 94 Men’s Volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Altas impressively recovered from an early stumble to overwhelm the College of Saint Benilde Blazers, 25-18, 27-29, 25-19, 25-20.

The win pushed Perpetual to solo first in the standings. They remain the only squad with an undefeated record at 3-0.

Aljoe Sereno led the Altas with 19 points, while reigning MVP Joebert Almodiel added 15 markers.

Transferee Vince Abrot towed the Blazers in their first loss, tallying 13 points while captain Francis Basilan added 11.

In the day’s final match, the Knights overcame a 1-2 sets deficit and a 17-22 gap in the fourth set to shock the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers, 21-25, 25-16, 20-25, 25-23, 15-11.

Christopher Cistina led Letran with 15 markers, while Angel Canzana and Denver Era each provided 13. Letran improved to a 1-2 record.

The Bombers, who suffered their second loss in three matches, had June Laxina tally a game-high 18 points.
