University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas shook off a dropped set, stopping Mapua University in four, 25-15, 25-17, 20-25, 25-15, in the NCAA Season 95 Men’s Volleyball Tournament, Friday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Louie Ramirez once more paced the Altas’ offense with 19 points, 15 of which coming from attacks. The second-year converted outside hitter also fired off three service aces and a block.

“Nung first and second set, andoon ‘yung basics, ‘yung intensity nila, ‘yung urge nila, ‘yung drive nila to play and to win. Pero nung nakuhanan kami ng third set, Mapua is also a good team, but then ‘yung psychological ba, nag-re-relax, ‘yung complacency nila,” Perpetual head coach Sammy Acaylar said of what happened in the first three sets.

Perpetual’s miscues in that third frame gave Mapua the set, despite the late surge from the reigning champs.

Acaylar also shared that his players were a little tired due to their recent focus on physical conditioning. Nonetheless, “As the time goes on sa game, hindi dapat nila ibibigay na reason ‘yun. It’s a game, kahit anong maramdaman mo, kailangan you’re going to play for the school.”

Skipper Ronniel Rosales added 17 markers, built on 13 attacks, three blocks, and an ace.

Rookie Hero Austria added seven markers but was a steady force in defense with eight digs and 11 excellent receptions.

This is Perpetual’s fourth straight win to remain on top of the ladder.

Alfred Pagulong, John San Andres, and captain Raje Hizon all ended with 12 markers each for Mapua, who slid to its third straight loss.
