The De La Salle University (DLSU) Green Shuttlers effortlessly swept the University of the East (UE) Red Warriors, 5-0 to extend their winning streak to four.
The Taft-based squad is at the rhythm of their victory since the season started. Earlier today, they conquered the Warriors’ ruthless blows by masterfully winning those sets. Team Captain Elijah Boac started the hot streak for DLSU as he won against Benjamin Silva, 21-14 and 21-9.
Veteran Kenneth Monterubio showed dominance against Warrior Manalangit in the second singles stoning convincing shots and winning both sets, 21-16 and 21-18.
To seal the triumph for the Green Shuttlers, the strong tandem of Anton Cayanan and Gerald Sibayan bagged another victory against Clarence Camacho and King Arthur Espiritu. Cayanan and Sibayan finished the sets quickly and overpowered the tandem of the Recto-based squad, 21-12 and 12-8.
Jerickson Obaob and Rookie Cayel Pajarillio captured the win against UE in the second doubles match. Manalangit and Cruz were unable to prevent the primacy of the La Salle duo and fell in both sets, 21-16 and 21-15.
To add to their hot streak, rookie Andrew Pineda played the last men’s singles of the tie against Angelo David. Pineda showcased his powerful dominance against David despite of a non-bearing game. David tried to reciprocate his errors but it wasn’t enough to rise and bounce back. Pineda dispatched his opponent, 21-14 for both sets.
The DLSU Green Shuttlers finished strong and are now targeting to beat the defending Champions National University. The Green Shuttlers will next face Far Eastern University tomorrow at 8am at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex.
