Following a three-set win over San Beda last Saturday, the Adamson University Lady Falcons continued their mastery of NCAA-based foes after handily defeating the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Lady Altas, 25-20, 25-19, 25-13, in the 2019 PVL Collegiate Conference, Saturday.
Reminiscent of their conference opener, the rookie-laden Adamson seized command in the first set for an early advantage. With momentum on their side, the Lady Falcons rallied in the succeeding sets to drub the Lady Altas and post a 2-0 win-loss card.
Trisha Genesis continued to lead the way for Adamson, tallying a game-high 15 points built on 14 attacks. She was also the lone double-digit scorer in the match.
Lorene Toring contributed eight markers, including four of her team’s seven blocks. Rizza Cruz chipped six points.
Rookie-captain Louie Romero churned out the offense for the Lady Falcons with 19 excellent sets to put eight of her attacks on the scoring column.
The Lady Falcons feasted on the error-plagued Lady Altas, who surrendered 32 errors in three sets.
Adamson outgunned Perpetual, hammering down 31 attacks to the latter’s 21. The Lady Falcons also thrived above the net and in the service area, tallying 7 blocks and five aces compared to the four-block, three-ace outing of the Lady Altas.
Despite a dominant performance, Adamson head coach Lerma Giron noted that her youth-laden team still has plenty of room for improvement.
“Actually, sabihin natin na we’re winning but sa technical aspect, marami pa kaming dapat i-workout. Sinasabi ko nga sa kanila na do not stop learning para mas mag level up,” Giron said. “Hindi dapat kumampante na kahit nanalo kami, dapat magtrabaho pa rin kami.”
On the other hand, the Lady Altas fell to an even 1-1 slate.
Jhona Rosal and Jenny Gaviola led Perpetual with seven markers apiece.
Adamson will try to stretch its streak to three when it faces San Sebastian while Perpetual seeks to bounce back against Letran. Both matches will be played on Sunday, September 1 at the FilOil Arena.
