The Lady Blazers knocked off fellow Final Four hopeful University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Lady Altas, 24-26, 25-20, 25-13, 25-21, to notch their second win in three outings.
“Siguro nilalamig pa ng first set so we talked and made adjustments,” said first-year Lady Blazers head coach Jerry Yee.
Graduating middle blocker Rachel Austero topped Saint Benilde with 20 points off 13 attacks, four blocks, and three aces while opposite hitter Klarisa Abriam added 14.
Cindy Imbo led the Lady Altas with 14 points while captain Blanca Tripoli added nine markers.
In the day’s later match, the Lady Bombers picked up their first win, grinding out the Colegio San Juan de Letran Lady Knights, 25-23, 14-25, 25-15, 25-16.
