Santiago limited by JT Marvelous as Saitama dealt second straight loss in V.League

Defending champions JT Marvelous sent Saitama reeling to its second-straight defeat, 25-23, 25-18, 25-20, in the 2021-22 Japan V.League Division 1 women’s tournament at the Higashiyama Gymnasium in Kyoto, Sunday.

The reigning titlists checked Jaja Santiago, holding her to just four points on three attacks and a block. She also was a poor 3-of-13 in spiking.

JT Marvelous import Andrea Drews went for 22 points, built on 19 attacks, two block kills, and a service ace in the one-hour and 31-minute contest.

Mizuki Tanaka patrolled the net and came through with three blocks alongside 11 attacks to finish with 14 as her squad rose to 4-0.

Mami Uchiseto was her usual self for Ageo Medics with 12 points. Meanwhile, Yuka Sato saw herself limited to just eight points.

Brazilian import Lorenne Teixeira was silenced to just three points in the losing cause.

Santiago and the Ageo Medics look to return in the win column on Saturday, Oct. 30. They play PFU Bluecats, 1:00 PM at Komatsu General Gymnasium in Ishikawa.
