The De La Salle University Lady Spikers struck down the University of the East Lady Warriors in straight sets, 25-16, 25-15, 25-9, in the second round of the UAAP Season 79 Women’s Volleyball Tournament at the FilOil Flying V Arena, Saturday.

The Lady Spikers is the second team to barged into the Final Four, their ninth straight appearance, sharing first place with the Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles as both teams now have a 9-2 win-loss card.

Desiree Cheng led the way for the La Salle with 10 points, nine coming from attacks and one from the service line. Kim Fajardo scored nine and dished out 31 excellent sets, while MaJoy Baron added nine markers herself, including three blocks.

DLSU proved mastery of UE as the latter never got any taste of the lead. Coach Ramil De Jesus had the luxury of using his second unit as they built huge leads in the second and thirds sets and ran away with victory.

The Taft-based squad will next face the University of Santos Tomas Golden Tigresses on Wednesday, March 29, 4pm still at the same venue.
