UAAP 85 WBVB: UST’s Barbon-Eslapor, NU’s Cordero-Orillaneda advance to Final Four

Defending four-time champion University of Santo Tomas and National University booked the first two Final Four slots after sustaining their perfect records in the UAAP Season 85 women’s beach volleyball tournament Wednesday at Sands SM By The Bay.

The Golden Tigresses improved to 5-0, as Gen Eslapor and reigning MVP Babylove Barbon overpowered Adamson University’s Mary Grace Borromeo and Aliah Marce, 21-8, 21-12, before returning to the afternoon session with an emphatic 21-2, 21-6 victory over University of the East’s Ella Mae Capillano and Meriam Mungcal.

The Lady Bulldogs’ rookie Honey Grace Cordero and Kly Orillaneda started the day by topping Far Eastern University’s Gerzel Petallo and Melody Pons, 21-19, 21-16, and later extended their unbeaten run to five matches following a 21-17, 21-13 romp of De La Salle’s Justine Jazareno and Jolina Dela Cruz.

The Lady Spikers, who earlier swept the Lady Warriors’ Capillano and Mungcal, 21-14, 21-16, fell to 4-1 in the third spot.

In the other morning match, University of the Philippines’ Euri Eslapor and Alyssa Bertolano repulsed Ateneo’s Pia Ildefonso and Ysa Nisperos, 21-12, 21-14.

The Fighting Maroons remained in fourth with a 2-2 record, while the Lady Tamaraws and the Lady Falcons now have 1-3 slates outside the Final Four range.

Action resumes on Saturday.
