UAAP 84: Tagaod, Asis power FEU to five-set triumph over UE, take first win

Far Eastern University ended the fifth set with a huge 10-2 rally to close out the pesky University of the East with a 19-25, 25-15, 25-20, 17-25, 15-10 victory and notch their first win in the UAAP Season 84 Women’s Volleyball Tournament, Tuesday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Trailling 8-5 in the fifth and final set, Chen Tagaod fired four points in an 8-0 blast that gave FEU a five-point, 13-8 cushion against the Lady Red Warriors.

After Lycha Ebon committed a service error, Tagaod put the Lady Tamaraws at match point while Jean Asis, whose attack went out prior to the winning point, sealed the win with a powerful quick.

“Nakita naman namin yung mga bata na gusto nilang manalo pero sabi ko sa kanila, hindi madali kasi nasa transition period kami. Nandiyan, sabi ko mag tulungan na lang sa loob ng court,” said Lady Tamaraws head coach George Pascua. “At the end of the day, kapag nag tutulungan may possibility na manalo.”

Tagaod dropped 20 points to lead FEU to its first win of the UAAP season. The Lady Tamaraws have improved its slate to 1-2 while also keeping the Lady Red Warriors winless in three games played.

Jean Asis had 13 points on nine attacks, two aces, and two blocks while Kary Truz scored three kill blocks also for 13 points. Team skipper Lycha Ebon, whose steady services kept FEU going in the huge fifth set run, added 10 points off four aces.

Alexandra Juangco patrolled the floor with 25 excellent sets and seven excellent receptions while rookie playmaker Christine Ubaldo tossed 16 excellent sets to lead the offense.

FEU dropped the opener but managed to secure the next two sets and even led by as much as seven points in the third frame that put the team at a 2-1 advantage. However, the team failed to close out UE in the fourth set as the match went to a decider.

Janeca Lana finished with 20 points for the Lady Red Warriors built on 16 attacks, three blocks, and an ace along with six excellent receptions while Dara Nieva chipped in 19 points on 15 attacks and four aces laced with 17 excellent digs.

Jen Zeta also played big for UE with 21 excellent digs and 11 excellent receptions while Von Dimaculangan had nine excellent sets.

The Lady Red Warriors suffered a huge blow early in the game after Apple Lingay went down with a right knee injury in the first set after a bad fall. She still finished with four points in the contest.

FEU will take on Ateneo de Manila University on Thursday at 12:00 PM while UE will face National University earlier that day at 10:00 AM.
