The Junior Tigresses’ Vanessa Bangayan and Jullana Carreon carved out a 21-17, 21-17 victory over Far Eastern University-Diliman’s Nikka Medina and Mary Melony Amaro; then later ended their elims stint with 21-18, 21-10 win over Adamson University’s Mary Grace Borromeo and Ayesha Juegos.

UST tallied a 5-1 record.

With Lorien Gamboa replacing Jaboneta to join forces with Petallo, De La Salle-Zobel hacked out a 21-14, 21-13 victory over FEU to move closer in making it to the semis with its 3-2 mark in third place.

The Junior Warriors, who earlier beat Ateneo’s Celina Vergeire and Ady Lasala in the morning session, 21-14, 21-14, fell to 2-3 card alongside the Baby Falcons in fourth spot.
