With redemption in mind, the Adamson University Lady Falcons poured its fury on newcomer National University Lady Bulldogs by demolishing them in three sets 25-17, 25-19, 25-21 in the 7th Shakey’s V-League Second Conference volleyball tournament at the FilOil Arena in San Juan.
All guns were blazing for Adamson as five of its eight players scored 8 points or more. However, it was Paulina Soriano and Angela Benting who anchored the Lady Falcons’ fierce attack both scoring heavily with 14 and 12 points respectively.
It was as though the Lady Falcons were on a mission right from the start as they kept on pounding the Lady Bulldogs’ defense with ferocious offensive strikes.
Guest players Melissa Laborte and Nerissa Bautista also had solid games contributing 8 markers each while stalwart Gail Martin added 10 points for Adamson, who had to bounce back from a tough loss against University of Perpetual Help.
Though the Lady Falcons’ primary weapon that day was its firepower, there is no denying that their aggressive defense helped the San Marcelino-based spikers pulverize NU, limiting the Lady Bulldogs to a miserable 25 points off 105 attempted strikes.
National University star players Mervic Mengui and Elaine Sagun, who both exploded with 26 points combined in their win against College of St. Benilde, managed to chip in only 11 points.
Adamson will battle Lyceum next. Both teams are currently tied in third place along with NU and Perpetual Help with a 1-1 slate. Jan Allen Puertollano
