    NCAA champion Arellano defeated College of St. Benilde, 25-20, 25-22, 25-17, at the start of the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference on Saturday at The Arena in San Juan.

    Team captain Jovielyn Prado scored 14 points and Mary Anne Esguerra added 13 as Arellano took the early lead in Group B play.

    "Ang ginagawa lang namin ngayon ay hinahanap lang namin ang tamang combination. Medyo nangangapa pa ang team ko sa ngayon," said Arellano coach Obet Javier.

    "Sa nakita namin sa game namin kanina against Benilde medyo maganda lang siguro ang gising namin. Pero hindi porke’t nanalo kami (kompiyansa na kami)," he said. "Mas lalo pa naming pag-iibayuhin yung practice siguro para pagdating ng NCAA magiging ganito ulit ang resulta."

    Necole Ebuen and Regine Arocha each had nine points, while Andrea Marzan added six for Arellano in a match that took almost two hours to finish.

    Javier reminded his wards especially Prado, Esguerra, Marzan, Arocha, who suited up for the Power Smashers in the Open Conference, to step up for the team.

    Napakalaki ng nakuha nilang experience noong nakaraang conference. Sinasabi ko sa mga senior lalo na sa mga naglaro sa Power Smashers na kailangan mag-contribute kayo ng husto. Dapat ma-motivate din nila ang mga kasama nila na sabayan din sila," he said.

    Klarissa Abram scored nine for CSB.
