The DLSU Lady Spikers uncorked their UAAP Season 77 campaign with a victory after beating the Adamson Lady Falcons in four sets, 25-23, 24-26, 25-14, 25-17 at the San Juan Arena earlier tonight.
The Lady Spikers had a very rusty start in the first set but were able to climb back with the help of Kim Fajardo’s steady serves for her team to eventually win the set.
The second set was pretty much like the first, with DLSU having a shaky start, but this time a late rally was insufficient as they dropped the second set to Adamson despite taking a set point.
In the third and fourth sets, the Lady Spikers were finally able to get their blocking and reception going to build unassailable advantages to dispatch Adamson easily.
Captain Ara Galang led the DLSU Lady Spikers in scoring with 27 points coming from 22 attacks and 5 blocks. Camille Cruz was a spark off the bench while Kim Fajardo displayed game-long brilliance in setting for the taft-based squad.
The DLSU Lady Spikers will be facing the NU Lady Bulldogs on their next game which will be on Wednesday, November 26, 2pm at the San Juan Arena.
