The National Collegiate Athletic Association (Philippines) and the Shakey’s Super League have decided to suspend their games on Sunday due to inclement weather.

For NCAA Season 98, the games between Jose Rizal University (2-2) versus College of St. Benilde (3-1); and San Beda University (2-2) against University of Perpetual Help System DALTA (2-2) will have to wait for now as it will be rescheduled to a new date.

“Please be informed that upon consultation with MANCOM members through Viber, and through phone calls, we are suspending the games today due to storm signal #2 and will be rescheduled to a later date based on our NCAA guidelines,” read the statement of NCAA vice chairman Efren Jose Y. Supan.

Meanwhile, Athletic Events and Sports Management, Inc. also announced that the Shakey’s Super League 2022 Collegiate Pre-season Championship on Sunday has been postponed and will be moved to a later date as well.

“The organizers decided to cancel today’s games, Sept. 25, Sunday, at Rizal Memorial Coliseum due to Super Typhoon Karding that is expected to make landfall today,” league organizers announced in a statement.

Matches for October 1 and 2 will be adjusted to accommodate the postponed September 25 games.

Tickets for the September 25 playdate will be honored on the new schedule

Affected games are the Pool D clash between Letran and College of St. Benilde; the Pool B pairings of Emilio Aguinaldo College against Adamson University and the University of Sto.

Meanwhile, a pair of thrilling five-setters capped the opening day of the tournament Saturday night.

Far Eastern University came back from a 1-2 match deficit to pull off an upset over reigning National Collegiate Athletic Association champion College of St. Benilde, 25-20, 24-26, 19-25, 25-22, 15-11, in Pool D.

Protecting a slim 12-11 lead in the fifth set, the Lady Tamaraws finished off the Lady Blazers behind Mitzi Panangin power tipped followed by an off-the-block kill by Chenie Tagaod with rookie Barbie Jamili closing the match with a service winner to hand former FEU star setter, Tina Salak, a fitting welcome on her coaching debut.

Eya Laure, on the other hand, unleashed a salvo of hits in the closing stretch to power UST to a marathon 25-20, 27-29, 15-25, 29-27, 15-10 victory over Adamson University in a match that started late Saturday and ended early Sunday.
