La Salle vents ire on UE for rebound win

Coming off a heartbreaking five-set loss three days ago, the De La Salle University Lady Spikers picked up a quick rebound win at the expense of the hapless University of the East Lady Warriors, 25-18, 25-17, 25-20, Wednesday evening at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The Lady Warriors were able to put up decent score lines per set against the defending champions. However, nothing from their arsenal could contain the revenge-seeking Lady Spikers.

“UE has one sets with different strong teams recently kaya hindi namin sila inunderestimate. UE yan, pwede pa rin kami matalo dyan. We treat every team equally,” Kiana Dy asserted, after UE managed to keep up with them in the match.

“Nung dumidikit sila tumatahimik kami and dumarating na unforced errors, [kaya sabi namin] tapusin na natin ‘wag na mag-error,” she added.

La Salle took an early lead in the first set through the quick attacks of Aduke Ogunsanya, who led her squad with a 19-11 margin. UE’s Mary Anne Mendrez had a few bright moments, but their flawed defense proved costly and gave up the opening set.

Majoy Baron and Kianna Dy took the driver’s seat in the second set. and even secured an 11-6 lead. They closed the second set, 25-17.

During the third set, Desiree Cheng sealed the deal for the green and white with back-to-back attacks, 23-19.

Baron and Cheng scored the most for La Salle with 13 points each. They were supported by setter Michelle Cobb with 35 excellent sets, and libero Dawn Macandili with 25 excellent digs.

Both squads will have their next assignments immediately on Saturday, February 24. UE will next face the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws, while La Salle will go up against the Adamson University Lady Falcons.
