Fans and Lasallians speak: Thoughts on the sweep
Published on March 4th, 2015 | by DLSU Sports
Last year’s bridesmaid finishers DLSU Lady Spikers succumb in the hands of the 3rd-seeded NU Lady Bulldogs in a shocking sweep. In addition, Coach Ramil and his troops lost for the first time against Coach Roger Gorayeb.
In our twitter account @dlsusports, some fans, supporters and Lasallians sent out their opinions on the game and thoughts on the shocking sweep. Here are some of their responses:
-”DLSU’s defense was not sloppy. What they lacked is CONFIDENCE. Clearly, NU had what they really have and that is CONFIDENCE.” – (@Siotiii) Jeric Alvarez, Social Media team head, DLSU Sports
-”not their A-Game. Maybe because of the looong break. But i know they will bounceback” – @DLSUVolleyfans -”that’s the best of NU volleyball and the worst of DLSU. Couldn’t imagine it happening again especially soon.” – (@brnlncgllr) Brian Tamayao, former Writing team head, DLSU Sports
-”Disappointing because we all know that they’re capable of so much more. Nakaka-miss ang angas ng mga naunang DLSUWVT.” – @JoloLagman
-”I still believe in La Salle. But if they’ll continue to play the way did earlier, then expect another heartbreak. #PUSOPlease” – @shayneXIII
-”i have seen/watched the lady spikers being swept, three straight sets. But they always bounce back. And they will on Saturday.” – @mkreign
-”lack of energy and very tentative on every movement they made. Definitely not the typical dlsu game we all know” – @cheenopot
-”STUNNED. Absolutely gobsmacked! Was not expecting a loss. MOST Definitely not in 3 sets. I think DLSU prepped for Jaja mostly.” – @Ansabehhh
The Lady Bulldogs win erased their twice-to-beat advantage against La Salle and will play game two and the winner-take-all match on Saturday afternoon. The winner will book a date with the defending champions Ateneo Lady Eagles on Wednesday.
