UAAP 85 WVB: Tagaod tows FEU past UE to even slate

FAR EASTERN University recovered from a second set hiccup to clip winless University of the East, 25-16, 18-25, 25-23, 25-16, and move to .500 in the UAAP Season 85 women’s volleyball tournament at the SMART Araneta Coliseum, Sunday.

Ann Asis’ ace put the Lady Tamaraws at set point in the third frame, 24-19, but Ja Lana willed the Lady Warriors back to within one, 23-24.

However, Mitzi Panangin said enough and denied Lana in the ensuing play for the 2-1 FEU advantage, 25-23.

Then the Lady Tamaraws did not let go of the momentum, opening the fourth period with a stunning 9-1 start en route to the clincher.

“Five-five (record) masarap yung pakiramdam, kulang pa pero I think para masustain namin yung goal namin kailangan naming mag double time ngayong break,” said FEU head coach Tina Salak after the two-hour 14-minute match.

The Lady Tamaraws remain in striking distance from the Final Four with a 5-5 mark while the also-ran Lady Warriors fell to 0-10.

Chenie Tagaod and Panangin controlled the net with six and five blocks, respectively, leading FEU’s domination of the blocking department, 23-2.

“I-commend ko yung mga coaches. Sobrang commendable yung coaches na nageeffort talaga sa blocking, sa tiyaga para tulungan sila sa timing ng block,” added Salak.

Tagaod finished with 20 points while Jovelyn Fernandez chipped in 12 points including four blocks as well. Panangin had 11 points.

FEU playmaker Tin Ubaldo also tossed 17 excellent sets to go with six points.

Lana punched in a 24-point output on 21 attacks, two aces, and a block to go with 10 excellent receptions for the Lady Warriors.
