Taking the courts for the second time, both Recto-based squads once again took to battle to see who is the best. Sadly for UE, things did not change much as they tasted dirt albeit with a better score of 2-3 against NU.
NU launched its signature volley of attacks, quickly notching a victory courtesy of Leander Lazaro, who obliterated UE’s Menrado Soriano in a one-sided match which ended 6-1, 6-0. His victory in the singles was soon followed by Fritz Verdad who also dispatched his assignment, Paolo Baran, despite some difficulty as it ended 6-4, 6-3. Dheo Talatayod, however, suffered a surprising defeat at the hands of UE’s Rodolfo Barquin who ended the match 4-6, 4-6, to nab UE’s first singles win against NU.
In the doubles, NU also displayed its prowess as the duo of Al Michael Madrio and Jigo Peña defeated UE’s Rogelio Estaño Jr. and Rolly Saga in a close 7-6, 6-4 match. UE however retaliated in the final doubles match as Jeleardo Amazona and Joshua Kinaadman successfully launched an offensive that resulted in the defeat of NU’s John Accion and Francis Alcantara 3-6, 3-6, to end the final tie of the day.
