UAAP 84: La Salle quickly dispatches UE to arrest skid

De La Salle University ended its two-game skid in the UAAP Season 84 Women’s Volleyball Tournament after sweeping the winless University of the East 25-15, 25-14, 25-15, Saturday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Malaluan top-scored for La Salle with 14 points off 11 attacks, two aces, and a block along with eight excellent digs. Fifi Sharma and Jolina Dela Cruz backstopped Malaluan with 10 points each in the victory that put the team up at 3-2.

“Well, yung game kasi namin galing kami sa talo so struggle talaga,” said Lady Spikers assistant coach Benson Bocboc. “So we’re still trying to get that rhythm so nagkataon na ito yung first step namin to going back doon sa hinahanap namin playing against UE so nag deliver naman most of the players, maganda yung naging resulta.”

The Lady Spikers built an eight-point advantage, 21-13, off a kill from Alleiah Malaluan to pull away from the Lady Red Warriors. That proved to be it as Ynna Hatulan and Julia Coronel finished it to finally break the team’s two-game losing streak.

It was a dominant outing for La Salle, who was coming off two consecutive losses at the hands of National University and University of Sto Tomas. The Lady Spikers took the first two sets with over 10-point margins before completing the sweep with another clean showing in the third.

Ja Lana once again led the Lady Red Spikers with 11 points while Ercae Nieva scattered 10 points, 11 excellent digs, and nine excellent receptions. Only five players scored for UE in the team’s fifth consecutive loss.
