Lady Spikers secure semis bonus with mastery over Golden Tigresses

Published on March 29th, 2017 | by Genrev Josiah Villamin

DLSU Lady Spikers celebrate their win over the UST Golden Tigresses.

The DLSU Lady Spikers extended their winning streak to five games at the expense of the UST Golden Tigresses, 25-23, 25-22, 25-21, Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Desiree Cheng powered the team with 13 points built on nine attacks, one block, and three service aces.

After opening the first frame with a 4-1 lead, the Lady Spikers trailed for most of the set. Tin Tiamzon later knotted it anew at 19-all. The rest of the set instantly became a see-saw ride for both teams. However, La Salle held on and was able to take the driver’s seat late, 23-22. DLSU never looked back and claimed Set 1, 25-23, in a come-from-behind fashion.

In Set 2, the ladies in Green picked up where they left off. They established an early 10-5 cushion over the ladies in Yellow. Furthermore, Cheng extended her team’s distance to seven points, 15-8. UST tried to make a run by trimming DLSU’s edge to four points at 18-14. With La Salle leading UST at 22-17, Dawn Macandili almost single-handedly towed the Lady Spikers with her two digs to keep the rally alive. They eventually prevailed in Set 2 with a three-point margin, 25-22.

The Lady Spikers started Set 3 waxing hot just like their previous sets. Kim Dy was taken out of the court after suffering a minor sprain following an awkward landing on her ankle. Despite playing Dy-less for the rest of the set, the defending Champions showed their composure. They played a tight game against UST before pulling away in the endgame. The Green and White took Set 3 and the match, 25-21.

The DLSU Lady Spikers will face the Adamson University Lady Soaring Falcons on Wednesday at the SM Mall of Arena for their 11th win and sixth consecutive.
