UAAP 86 Beach Volleyball: NU’s Cordero-Orillaneda halts FEU’s Pons-Petallor streak

NATIONAL University’s Honey Grace Cordero and Kly Orillaneda overcame a tough second set stand by Far Eastern University’s Melody Pons and Gerzel Petallo to hack out a 21-12, 21-19 win and move closer in sweeping the UAAP Season 86 women’s beach volleyball eliminations at Sands SM By The Bay Friday.

Cordero and Orillaneda displayed tremendous poise in the second set to foil Pons and Petallo’s bid to extend the match, steering the Lady Bulldogs to a perfect 6-0 record.

The Lady Tamaraws, who will make their first Final Four appearance since 2019, saw their unbeaten five-match streak come to an end.

Defending champion University of Santo Tomas, which will face NU in a rematch of last season’s Finals at 7 a.m. Saturday, moved in a tie with FEU in second place at 5-1 after Sofiah Pagara and Gen Eslapor overpowered University of the East’s Van Bangayan and Krisha Revilla, 21-17, 21-12.

The Tiger Sands and the Lady Bulldogs, who have yet to yield a set in the tournament, have nothing to play in the elims finale except for the ranking.
