Relentless dominance

Despite several errors due to miscommunication early in the first set, Eddiemar Kasim fired up the green-and-white squad with superb kills, together with Bryan Castro’s crosscourt spikes, 25-15.

Bouncing back from their unsteady offense, the SFAC-B spikers strenghthen their confidence by throwing pacesetting kills that pulled a short comeback during the third set. However, the Patriot spikers immediately concluded the game with 25-15, 25-21, and 25-21 tallies.

Despite pushing an early lead in the first two sets, the DLSU-D Lady Patriots struggled in the middle of the third canto through SFAC’s shaky offense. Being the team’s spark, Cherry Nunag stopped the opponent’s rage by unleashing a kill, followed by two consecutive errors by SFAC before DLSU-D’s Myell Pasco handed the victory with three consecutive aces, 25-22.

Proving their supremacy, Lady Patriot Captain Iumi Yongco contributed 10 points, along with Eunice Castillo and Myka Tiangco, who combined for 13 points to dominate their game-opener. With reports from John Zedrick Simeon and Djoanna Nikole Javier
