UST’s Krung Arbasto-Jaron Requinto snatches UAAP crown, drubs FEU

The University Santo Tomas’ Krung Arbasto and Jaron Requinton regained a lost crown, overthrowing Season 81 powerhouse Far Eastern University’s Jude Garcia, Kevin Hadlocon, and Richard Solis in Game Two of the UAAP Men’s Beach Volleyball Finals, 21-12, 22-24, 15-10.

The Tiger Spikers shocked the erstwhile undefeated Tamaraws in Game One (21-14, 21-16). Game Two featured a dominant opening flurry from the Tigers, forcing FEU to sub out Hadlocon for Richard Solis.

The Tamaraws mustered a strong challenge in the second set, grabbing a 17-13 lead before UST rallied back and gained two championship points, 18-20. Back-to-back scores from Garcia extended the set to a tight deuce, which he also ended with two straight attacks.

The decider started tight before UST slowly pulled away and built a 13-8 wall. Arbasto tipped a ball to the far side before Requinton slid an attack to the line for the win.

UST last won the title in Season 79. Arbasto leaves the UAAP sandcourts with two titles.
