Saint Benilde recovers; San Sebastian rolls to second win

The College of Saint Benilde Lady Blazers rebounded from a debut loss; while the San Sebastian College-Recoletos Lady Stags picked up their second win in the NCAA Season 94 Women’s Volleyball Tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre, Friday.

The Lady Blazers made quick work of the Colegio San Juan de Letran Lady Knights, 25-19, 25-23, 25-22 to even their record at 1-1.

Opposite spiker Klarisa Abriam torched the Lady Knights for 15 points on 14-for-31 attacking. Graduating middle blocker Rachel Austero paced Benilde 10 points in two sets of action.

CSB head coach Jerry Yee lauded his team’s execution, pointing at several points to improve in their following matches.

“Good win for us. There are still some tweak we need to make, pero happy tayo kasi we can build off ‘yung mga ganitong performances,” said the first year Benilde head coach.

Kathleen Dela Cruz led the struggling Letran with 10 markers. Chamberleigne Cunada added nine markers.

The Lady Stags powered through their 44 errors to dispatch the Mapua University Lady Cardinals, 25-23, 25-15, 14-25, 25-23.

Veteran winger winger Nikka Dalisay topped the Lady Stags with 17 points, while rookie Ash Sarmiento added 11.

Lady Stags head coach Roger Gorayeb rued his young team’s wasteful play.

“May mga points doon na binigay namin sa kalaban na kung hindi namin binigay, baka mas madali kaming nanalo. Pero ganoon talaga, karamigan ng players ko rookie pa din,” Gorayeb said.

Angelie Magundayao powered the winless Lady Cardinals with nine points.
