By: Justine Anne Gaerlan

FAR EASTERN University-Diliman and National University Nazareth School romped past their respective foes to remain at a share of second in the UAAP Season 86 High School Boys’ Volleyball Tournament on Sunday at Adamson Gym.

The Baby Tamaraws, defending champions of the division, made quick work of the DLSZ Junior Green Spikers, 25-7, 25-16, 25-10, while the Bullpups routed the UPIS Fighting Maroons, 25-3, 25-12, 25-10, to rise to 4-1 in the standings — behind 4-0 UE Jr. Warriors.

Guided by a dominant performance from Vince Rebusquillo, the Baby Tamaraws established early dominance with a 13-8 advantage and maintained control throughout the entire set.

The deficit proved insurmountable for the Junior Spikers, as FEU-D initiated a nine-point run late in the set, securing a 25-10 set victory with a kill from Eli Naguit and picking up their fourth straight win.UAAP-86-HSVB-Boys-UP-vs-NUNS-Irilis-Kasim UAAP 86 HSVB: FEU-D, NUNS romp past foes, remain tied at 2nd ADMU DLSU FEU News NU UAAP UP Volleyball  - philippine sports news

Meanwhile, the Bullpups displayed a strong performance in the third set, quickly taking an 11-2 lead.

NUNS spurred a 5-0 run before UPIS responded with a three-point run of their own, aided by two errors from Irilis Kasim and a service ace from JM Navarro.

Abut delivered the final kill, concluding the game at 25-10 and posting their second straight victory.
