ADAMSON University came up with a win just a day after completing its lineup, defeating University of San Carlos, 25-13, 25-22, 25-21, in the 10th Shakey's V-League tournament at the Arena in San Juan on Tuesday.
"Kahapon lang kami nakumpleto kasi may beach volley pa kami sa Batangas pero ok naman kasi kundisyon naman silang lahat,” said Adamson coach Sherwin Meneses, noting that Bhebs Pineda and Pau Soriano returned only on Monday, while guest players joined them in training just recently.
“Yung ibang open spiker ko pa maganda ang pinapakita sa practice at sa laro," he added.
Pau Soriano scored 18 points, while Pindeda had four for the Lady Falcons, who gained a share of the lead in Group B with Arellano at 1-0. Guest players Angela Benting and Mylene Paat came up with six points each.
"Dumepensa ang San Carlos. Maganda ang team nila, balanced, maganda ang galaw, grabe ang depensa at ang ball handling maganda."
The Lady Warriors, who dethroned Southwestern University in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI), gave the UAAP third placers quite a scare late in the match.
Down by seven, 10-17, the Lady Warriors sliced down their deficit to two, 20-22, only to falter after an outside hit that gave the Lady Falcons the momentum to seal their win.
