Patriots in distress
In their debut in the IVL to compete against Cavite teams coming from various volleyball associations, the DLSU-D spikers were left stunning during the first set when the Elite spikers started the first frame on a high note, 12-4. Stealing the momentum, Patriot ace players Eddiemar Kasim and Aidam Adam combined six points through their lethal services and chance ball attempts along with the opponent’s errors, 11-15. Unfazed by DLSU-D’s run, the Elites kept their composure and survived the Patriots, 20-25.
The green-and-white squad still couldn’t find their rhythm, forcing them to commit a series of errors and they eventually found themselves in a 7-20 hole. Regardless of their team’s late chase down, the Elites ceaseless attacks took down the Patriots, 17-25.
The DLSU-D Patriots will try to bounce back in their second game against the Rockwell volleyball team on Sunday, November 27, 10 AM at the same venue.
