By: Justine Anne Gaerlan

University of the East continued its dominance in the UAAP Season 86 Boys’ Volleyball Tournament by shutting Adamson University out, 25-21, 25-19, 25-22, at the Adamson University Gym on Wednesday.

The Junior Warriors went up to a 5-0 record, although they faced a resilient stand from the tough Baby Falcons in the third set.

Maintaining a four-point lead late in the set, the Junior Warriors experienced a challenge when the Baby Falcons scored three consecutive points, narrowing the deficit to one at 20-19. This prompted UE coach Raffy Mosuela to call a timeout.

After another exchange of points, Xyrone Montemayor delivered a crucial kill, setting UE at match point.

CJ Dominguito’s subsequent attack went outside, securing the victory for the Junior Warriors.
