SHE IS DEFINITELY BACK! Ara Galang leads DLSU past FEU

Published on February 3rd, 2016 | by Camilla Saguin

 

araaaaAfter suffering ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) and MCL (medial collateral ligaments) tears on her knee, Ara Galang for the first in months, suited up for La Salle and led her squad to a straight sets victory over the Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws, 29-27, 25-23, 25-20.

DLSU started the game slow and trailed FEU for most of the first set but found their groove just in time to complete their comeback and bag the first frame. The Lady Spikers then continued their strong showing in the next two sets, leaning on powerful attacks from middle attackers Majoy Baron and Mika Reyes but when it came to closing out the sets, it was still Ara Galang who gave DLSU the clutch points.

The returning former Most Valuable Player, Ara Galang led the Lady Spikers with 10 points all of which came from attacks. However, more than just the points, it was the mere presence of Ara Galang that sure made the difference for her squad.

Mika Reyes, who was still nursing an ankle sprain, scored a team-high 13 points while Carol Cerveza and Majoy Baron added 10 and eight points respectively. On the other hand, Toni Basas led the Lady Tamaraws in scoring with 13 points.

For their next game, the DLSU Lady Spikers will battle it out with the University of the Philippines Lady Maroons on Saturday, February 6, 2pm at PhilSports Arena
