After remaining dormant for the whole game, Kris Roy Guzman let out a four point outburst late in the second set that helped the Tigers to a 21-18, 21-16 win over the defending champions, NU Bulldogs and forced a Game three tomorrow.
With the Bulldogs threatening to force the game into a third set with a 16-15 lead late in the second set, the shorter of the UST pair, Kris Roy Guzman, rifled off three consecutive point, with a service ace, a drop, and then a devastating spike that had the Thomasians take an 18-16 lead. NU’s Joseph Tipay would then incur a setting error followed by a spike from Mike Alfafara then a well-placed off-speed attack from Guzman finished off the set and the Bulldogs.
Tommorow’s deciding game will be played at the UE sand court at 9 a.m.
