The Lady Spikers moved closer to their championship aspirations after nailing a tough win against the UST Tigresses, 16-21, 22-20, 18-16, during the second game of the UAAP Women’s Beach Volleyball Championship earlier at the UE Caloocan Sand Court.

“Babawi kami sa next games. Less errors and we will correct our mistakes na nagawa namin sa games today and sana makabawi naman and sana maging composed ulit kami ni Kim,” (We will bounce back in the next games. Less errors and we will correct the mistakes that we committed in today’s games and hopefully we’ll be able to bounce back. And I hope Kim and I will remain composed) says Cyd Demecillo.

UST took the first set of the second game easily 21-16 and looked like they were going to run away with the title but the Lady Spikers refused to give up and furiously won the next two sets, 22-20 and 18-16.

First game mishap

The Kim Fajardo and Cyd Demecillo tandem had a good start in the opening game of the finals but saw their early lead vanish and lost the first set to UST’s Cherry Rondina and Rica Rivera 21-15.

In the second set, La Salle had a chance to tie the game at one set apiece but untimely errors prevented them from capturing the set. With that, UST capitalized on all the errors and miscues that DLSU committed leading them to nab the second set 25-23.

Inching closer to the crown

For the team to grind out another win, it will be their character and experience that would be the main factors in securing the crown.

“Character talaga. Alam namin na ahead kami sa experience. Dapat pagpasok pa lang ng court intimidated na yung kalaban kasi rookies palang sila so alam nila na mas experienced kami” (Character. We know that we are more experienced. The moment we step in the court they should be intimidated already since they are rookies and they know we are more experienced), Fajardo shares.

Game three of the finals between DLSU and UST will be played tomorrow, 9:30am at the UE-Caloocan sand court. If La Salle wins game three, a winner-takes-all-game will follow.
