San Sebastian avoids Lyceum upset; Letran picks up quick win

The San Sebastian College-Recoletos Lady Stags needed to avert disaster while the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Lady Knights dominated their foes to kick off their respective NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball campaigns at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The new-look Lady Stags almost let a two-set lead slip before putting away the Lyceum of the Philippines University Lady Pirates, 25-12, 25-21, 17-25, 22-25, 15-9.

San Sebastian, who missed the Final Four for the first time in recent history last season, had returning winger Nikka Dalisay provided the offense with 21 points to go with 13 crucial digs. Rookie Shannai Requirme supplemented the Lady Stags with 19 points.

Lady Stags head coach Roger Gorayeb rued his team’s attitude after taking a two-set lead, but complimented their resiliency.

“Nag-relax kasi noong lumamang kami ng dalawang sets. Wala naman siguro matutuwa doon. Pero nakabawi naman kami noong dulo. Siguro nadala lang dahil nga first game namin,” said the outspoken mentor.

Rocelyn Hongria topped the Lady Pirates with 19 points while Bien Juanillo added 17.

In the other women’s match of the day, the Lady Knights quickly dispatched of the Emilio Aguinaldo College Lady Generals, 25-23, 25-21, 25-16.

Manuela Larioque led Letran with 12 points while Chamberleine Cunada added nine markers. Letran won the match despite surrendering 32 errors as the Lady Generals gave up 35.

Jaylene Lumbo was EAC’s lone bright spot with 13 points.
