Red Warriors stay unbeaten, devour Fighting Maroons


No let-ups for the UE Red Warriors

The University of the East Red Warriors pushed their winning streak to six and moved closer to the Finals slot, after routing the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons, 4-1, Saturday at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Center.

Josshua Kinaadman downed Mikko Ringia in straight sets, 6-1, 6-0, to open the day for the undefeated Recto-based squad.

In the other court, AJ Lim fended off the challenge of UP rookie Joel Atienza in a sweep, 6-2, 6-3, to double the lead for UE.

The Warriors then bagged the tie in just the third match, after Rogelio Estaño and RJ Saga finished off Vincent Alanis and Kyle Joseph, 6-4, 6-2. Following suit were the second doubles tandem of Paulo Baran and Jeric Delos Santos, who took care of a pair of Maroon rookies Mimo Tomacruz and Auden Pagduganan, 6-2, 6-2.

Joshua Cano averted a sweep after pocketing the third singles match at 6-2, 6-4, against Rodolfo Barquin.

The Red Warriors (6-0) will try to repeat the feat against the defending champions National University Bulldogs (3-2) on Sunday, March 5. Meanwhile, the Fighting Maroons (1-5) will be gunning for a season sweep over the Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles (2-4) earlier that day.
