Vince Abrot hammers Letran as CSB Blazers make it two in a row in NCAA 95

Vince Abrot powered College of St. Benilde’s drubbing of Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 25-21, 25-16, 25-22, to build momentum in the NCAA Season 95 Men’s Volleyball Tournament, Monday at the FilOil Flying V Centre. 

Following his 14-point outing against Lyceum three days ago, Abrot continued to deliver the goods. He rained down 15 points built on 12 attacks, two aces, and a block, helping the Blazers string consecutive victories for a 2-1 win-loss slate.

“One game at a time, at mas okay na performance nila compared last game. Eventually, every after game, target naman namin mag improve level of game namin,” Saint Benilde head coach Arnold Laniog said.

The Blazers unleashed a balanced offensive thrust, drawing contributions from all 10 attackers fielded in the match that lasted for an hour and 12 minutes.

Owen Bacani and Georgie Guani complimented Abrot on the offensive end, supplementing nine markers apiece. The quintet of Roniey Adviento, Ryan Daculan, Franz Almonte, James Laguit and Joshua De Sequera then chimed in five points each.

Meanwhile, St. Benilde Aijan Paul Dy saw a spike in playing time following restricted minutes in the first two matches, since he was still recovering from an injury. He was fielded in all frames, collecting 13 receptions and nine digs

Jericho Paolo Fajardo ably distributed the wealth to the tune of 22 excellent sets. St. Benilde drew strength from its savvy orchestrator to pummel 51 attacks to Letran’s 38.

“Well basta magkaroon ng pasa, gumana ‘yung pasa, madali na lang umatake,” Laniog added.

The Blazers also outperformed the Knights in the blocking (5-3) and service (5-1) departments.

On the other hand, the Knights are still in search of their breakthrough win after falling to 0-2.

Kint Brylle Novo almost single-handedly carried the scoring cudgels for Letran. His game-high output of 17 points, though, went down the drain. Angel Canzana managed nine markers, while Michael Doria had seven.

St. Benilde will try to sustain its streak when it collides against Emilio Aguinaldo College on Thursday, January 23. Meanwhile, Letran will seek to barge into the winner’s circle when it faces San Beda on Friday, January 24. Both matches will be played at the same venue.
