FAR Eastern University made it to the win column after a faltering start, while Adamson University suffered a second consecutive loss as the Lady Tamaraws downed the Lady Falcons, 25-12, 25-19, 25-16, on Wednesday in the UAAP Season 92 women’s volleyball tournament at The Arena in San Juan.
Bernadeth Pons and Remy Palma led the attack for FEU with a combined 28 points as the Lady Tamaraws came up with a solid start and a strong finish to emerge on top in a battle of opening-day losers.
FEU bounced back from a straight-sets loss to titleholder La Salle, while Adamson, which earlier bowed to University of the Philippines, slipped to 0-2.
“Wala naman ako sinabi masyado after ng talo sa La Salle kasi before naman ng opening lahat naman naibigay na namin sa kanila sa training, ‘yung mga advice,”said FEU coach Shaq delos Santos.
“Mas dinagdagan lang namin ang intensity sa training. Alam naman namin ang mga lapses namin, which is nakikita pa rin namin kanina na meron pa rin,” he added.
FEU was holding a comfortable, 21-10, lead in the second set before Adamson threatened, 18-21, but the Lady Tamaraws immediately got back up and pounded on the Lady Falcons.
Bernadette Flora finished with nine points for Adamson, while Jema Galanza added eight.
