The Lady Falcons has booked their ticket in the Shakey’s Super League after a surgical rout of University of San Jose-Recoletos, 25-9, 25-11, 25-23 at the FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan City, August 2. 

Adamson found themselves down 19-22 late in the third set after comfortably securing the first two sets of the game. 

The San Marcelino team then uncorked five straight points to go to match point, 24-22. USJ-R was able to answer and keep themselves afloat, but a service error marked the end of the match in favor of the girls in navy blue and white. 

The Lady Falcons banked on a balanced offensive attack with skipper Lucille Almonte leading the charge with 12 points. Red Bascon and Ishie Lalongisip, meanwhile, punched eight markers, respectively. 

Ayesha Juegos also chipped in six, while five others each registered five points. 

Adamson will face the winner of the match between College of Saint Benilde and University of Perpetual Help System Dalta in the semifinal round for a slot at the league’s finals.
