Lady Spikers exact revenge on Lady Maroons

Published on March 19th, 2017 | by Khyte Mendoza

 

Lightning never strikes the same place twice, and the De La Salle University Lady Spikers proved just that as they evened the score against the University of the Philippines Fighting Lady Maroons in three sets, 27-25, 25-11, 25-17, in a nail-biting clash in the second round of the UAAP Season 79 Women’s Volleyball Tournament at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan, Sunday.

DLSU moved a win away from making it back to Final Four.

MaJoy Baron was once again hailed as the Best Player of the Game, posting 16 points including six service aces and three blocks.

Other notable stats are from La Salle’s open hitters with Kim Dy, Desiree Cheng, and Ernistine Tiamzon chipping in 11 points each. Dawn Macandili – as always – made her presence felt on the defensive end with 23 excellent digs.

Baron struck down a quick attack to complete a 4-0 blast to start the opening set. The Lady Spikers, then, built a six-point lead but they strung errors to turn the momentum over to the Maroon side. Aduke Ogunsanya sent the ball out, giving the lead to UP, 18-17.  Both teams exchanged blows in the latter part of the set, but it was La Salle who displayed poise down the stretch to take the first.

The second frame was a walk in the park for DLSU. Dy threw the hammer down to push La Salle’s edge to eight, 13-5. The Green and White had their biggest lead of the match behind another quick from Baron, 22-11, to cruise to the second period victory.

With the Lady Maroons’ backs against the wall, they were looking to get back into the game. Marian Buitre scored off a dump to only trail the Taft-based squad by one, 7-8. DLSU spilled the hopes of the Katipunan spikers as the former pulled away again in the third canto, 14-8. The lead was just too big to overcome for UP as DLSU completed their payback.

Isa Molde had 12 markers to lead the scoring department for Coach Jerry Yee’s crew, while Diana Carlos added 11 as the two sophomores were the only Lady Maroons to hit double figures.

DLSU now holds an, 8-2, win-loss record and will next face the University of the East Lady Warriors on March 25, Saturday, 2pm at the same venue.
