The young Adamson University Lady Falcons belted the Cesca Racraquin-led San Beda Lady Red Spikers with a 25-18, 25-22, 25-16 whipping to jumpstart their 2019 PVL Collegiate Conference campaign, Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

“New faces, new breed, new hopes. Magandang simula,” said Adamson coach Lerma Giron. “Eighty-percent of the team bago. Magandang experience din sa kanila yun.”

Missing the services of their mainstays due to their prior commitments in club teams, the Lady Falcons heavily relied on their upstarts to hold off an NCAA powerhouse in San Beda.

Trisha Genesis tallied 16 points — built on 13 attacks and three aces — to show the way for Adamson, which fielded 10 rookies in the match.

Newly-minted Lady Falcon Lucille May Almonte flaunted her all-around prowess. She delivered 11 points laced with 19 excellent digs and six excellent receptions. Ceasa Pinar also had 11 markers spiked by three aces.

First-year playmaker Louie Romero dished out 23 excellent sets to churn out the offense for the Lady Falcons, who hammered down a total of 43 attacks.

“Ang purpose namin sa PVL is exposure kasi nga bago, pwedeng [mag] experiment [kaya] maganda,” Giron added.

Cesca Racraquin and Ella Viray led San Beda in scoring, finishing with 10 markers apiece in a losing cause. The former had seven attacks and two aces on top of 14 excellent digs while the latter provided eight attacks and two blocks.

Kim Manzano managed eight points while Daryl Racraquin protected the floor with 20 excellent digs and eight excellent receptions.
