Saint Benilde dashes Perpetual for second win; JRU topples Letran

The College of Saint Benilde Lady Blazers and the Jose Rizal University Lady Bombers needed to grind out wins against hungry opponents in the NCAA Season 94 Women’s Volleyball Tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

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.

Middle hitter Mary May Ruiz scorched the Lady Knights with 18 points while Dolly Versoza adder 13. Sydney Negos tallied 12 points, including all three of JRU’s blocks.

Chamberlaine Cunada led Letran with 14 points while captain Miracle Mendoza added 12. The Lady Knights kept pace with JRU through all the scoring skills, but gave up a whooping 30 errors.
