‘Embarrassed’ coach Padda lashes out at Lady Falcons: ‘It was like they wanted UE to win’

FROM pride to embarrassment in a week.

All smiles after stunning win by Adamson over titleholder La Salle last week, a dejected Air Padda on Sunday said she could not understand how the Lady Falcons could lose the way they did to cellar-dwelling University of the East.

UE earned 52 points or equivalent to two sets on Adamson’s errors and the Lady Warriors scored their first win of the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament, ending a winless run that started in the first round of last season.

“Embarrassing. For me it’s embarrassing ‘cause I don’t, we don’t train them like that. I don’t know who that team was out there,” said Padda.

“I don’t understand how we made that many errors. It was almost they were playing for the other team like they wanted UE to win, I don’t know,” she added.

UE only has three wins in 49 matches in the last three seasons — all against Adamson.

“I don’t know, the coaches were shocked. I don’t know, I’m just still trying to take in what happened,” she said, noting the Lady Falcons took the Lady Warriors lightly.

 “They showed up with a very weak mindset today, they were really complacent, they didn’t respect UE and they didn’t care, they’re way too cocky,” she said.

Adamson is at 3-4 at the end of the first round.
