LA Salle will have a full complement of players for the title decider, with Lady Spikers top hitter Ara Galang set to suit up after an injury scare.

Athletic director Nongnong Calanog said on Thursday Galang suffered only a left knee contusion that won’t keep her from playing in the final match of the Season 78 women’s volleyball tournament.

Galang was actually fielded in the fourth set of the loss to Ateneo after being pulled out in the third when she looked to have hurt her leg.

“Parang nabugbog lang ng kaunti ‘yung left knee niya,” said the La Salle official. “Parang mild contusion lang siya.”

La Salle won the opening match of the best-of-three series in three sets.
