UST’s Requinton-Varga advances to finale as rest of Final Four washed out

The University of Santo Tomas booked the first men’s Finals berth as Jaron Requinton and Rancel Varga toppled Adamson University’s Leo Miranda and Jesus Valdez, 21-12, 21-15, the UAAP Season 82 Beach Volleyball Tournament, Wednesday at Sands SM By The Bay. 

The other semifinal between Far Eastern University and National University was halted due to thunderstorms.

The Bulldogs won the first set, 21-13, but officials put the match on hold when lightning started up in the second set.

The Tiger Spikers earlier completed a seven-match sweep of eliminations with a 21-18, 22-20 conquest of the Tamaraws’ Jude Garcia and Kevin Hadlocon.

The loss dropped the Falcons to the third-place game on Saturday.

NU’s James Natividad and James Buytrago needed three sets to repulse Adamson, 21-17, 20-22, 15-11. They finish third in the elims with a 5-2 card. Meanwhile, the Falcons settled for fourth at 4-3.

University of the Philippines’ Niccolo Consuelo and Louis Gamban bested University of the East’s Lloyd Josafat and alternate Al-jhon Abalon, 21-14, 21-16, to end their season in fifth place with a 3-4 mark.

De La Salle’s Vince Maglinao and Ian Jumandos made quick work of Ateneo’s Abai Llenos and Kurt Aguilar, 21-15, 21-13, for a 2-5 slate in sixth.

The Red Warriors and the Blue Eagles ended up at 1-6 and 0-7, respectively.

Due to the thunderstorm that lasted for two hours, officials called off the remaining Final Four matches. Action will resume on Saturday.
