    DEPOSED champion Philippine Army walloped Ateneo in straight sets, 25-17, 25-10, 25-18, to get back at Ateneo and clinch third place in the Shakey’s V-League Open Conference at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium Tuesday.

    Recovering from their, 21-25, 25-19, 25-22, 18-25, 13-15, stinging loss in the opener of the best-of-three series Sunday, the Lady Troopers leaned on Joanne Bunag, who delivered 12 points in the dominant Game Two win.

    The scheduled best-of-three series for third place was abbreviated when Sandugo swept Cagayan Valley in the finals. Army clinched third place due to a superior quotient. 

    While Bunag was the only player to finish in double figures for Army, the win was a total team effort as everyone in the team – except for the libero – contributed at least a point.

    “Ngayon lang kami na kumpleto as a team, yun lang yun, kaya kami nanalo,” said Army coach Rico de Guzman in downplaying the win.

    The Lady Eagles continued to miss the services of team captain Gretchen Ho and key players Fille Cainglet and Jem Ferrer due to  school obligations.

    In their absence, Ella de Jesus took the cudgels for the team with 12 points.
