UAAP 84: Despite third set hiccup, La Salle dominates FEU for third straight win

De La Salle University ended the first round in third place after clipping Far Eastern University, 25-7, 25-12, 22-25, 25-11, in the UAAP Season 84 women’s volleyball tournament, Thursday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

The Lady Spikers nabbed their third win in a row to raise their record to 5-2, joint second with University of Santo Tomas

La Salle rediscovered its form in the fourth frame, cruising to a 6-1 lead and never let go of the lead on the way to the 25-11 win.

The Lady Tamaraws, meanwhile, sank to 1-6 with their only victory coming against winless University of the East.

“Coming to this game, talagang nakapaghanda tayo sa FEU alam nating lalaban sila. Noong first two sets off lang siguro sila,” said Lady Spikers assistant coach Benson Bocboc.

“Lumaban noong third set kaya nag adjust tayo. Medyo mabagal kami kasi nag adapt kami sa laro ng kalaban buti nakarecover at nakuha namin yung panalo,” he added.

Alleiah Malaluan led the onslaught for DLSU with 16 points on 15 attacks while Thea Gagate chimed in with 14 points.

After lopsided first two sets, a spirited FEU squad came out in the third set en route to an upset 25-22 win to extend the match.

Fifi Sharma also flexed her scoring might for the Lady Spikers with 13 points, while Marite Espina had seven points in limited minutes.

La Salle dominated the spiking department, almost doubling FEU’s output, 59-30.

Rookie Chenie Tagaod was the lone Lady Tamaraw in double digits with 11 points while Shiela Kiseo got nine points in the losing cause.
