Lady Spikers drop season opener against UST
Published on August 23rd, 2014 | by Camilla Saguin
The duo of Kim Fajardo and Cyd Demecillo dropped their first game to UST’s Cherry Rondina and Rica Rivera in straight sets 18-21, 13-21, earlier at the UE Caloocan Sand Court.
The Lady Spikers started slowly in the first set and couldn’t keep up the pace with the Tigresses. UST was quick to capitalize on the attack errors that the Taft-based squad committed and established an 18-12 lead.
DLSU tried to bounce back with a 4-0 run to cut UST’s lead to just 3 points but UST was able to fend off DLSU’s rally and took the first set 21-18.
The second set had the same story for DLSU as they only managed to score 13 points, 5 of which came from UST’s service errors.
UST easily took the second set 21-13.
The Lady Spikers will aim to bounce back tomorrow, August 24, as they go up against defending champions Adamson University, 10:00 am and University of the Philippines at 1:00 pm.
