UAAP 84: Adamson scores bounce back, keeps UE winless to end round


Adamson University returned to the win column, tripping winless University of the East in straight sets, 25-23, 25-20, 25-18, in the UAAP Season 84 women’s volleyball tournament, Thursday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Lorene Toring delivered 14 points on 10 attacks and four blocks, a big improvement from her one-point tally last Tuesday.

The Lady Falcons will enter the second round above .500 at 4-3, good for solo fourth.

“Sabi ko lang sa kanila, tanggapin yung pagkatalo namin sa UST. Maraming lessons na itinuro sa bawat isa sa amin. Lahat ng pagkakamali natin doon, i-try natin i-correct this game,” said Adamson head coach Lerma Giron, as her team is coming off a five-set loss to the Golden Tigresses last Tuesday.

“Gusto ko lang po talaga bumawi kasi nung last game, hindi ako nakapag contribute sa team,” said Toring.

To which Giron answered: “Bawing-bawi na ngayon.”

Trailing 6-7 in the early goings of the third set, the Lady Falcons unleashed a 9-1 blast to establish a seven-point cushion on the way to a 25-18 tally for the win.

The Lady Falcons came back from a 19-22 deficit in the first period with a 6-2 spurt, capped by Toring’s quick kill, for the early advantage, 25-23.

After back-to-back points by UE, Adamson’s May Ann Nuique and Toring buried consecutive points to give their side a commanding 2-0 set lead, 25-20.

Nuique top-scored for Adamson with 15 points including four blocks as well, while Rizza Cruz had 10 points.

Ja Lana dropped 16 points while Dara Nieva chipped in 14 points.
