FAR Eastern University whipped Philippine Merchant Marine School, 25-19, 25-16, 25-23, on Saturday for its second win in the Spikers’ Turf Collegiate Conference at the Philsports Arena in Pasig.

Greg Dolor had 11 points, 10 on spikes, while Richard Solis added 10 points for the Tamaraws.

“Pinaalala ko lang naman ang pattern, tsaka ’yung tiwala sa isa’t isa,” said FEU head coach Reynaldo Cruz Jr.

“Kaya nga ‘yung mga bad shot pinipilit nila kunin sa block, may pattern kasi. Kailangan ng tiwala sa isa’t isa talaga.”

The Tamaraws got sloppy in the third but errors by the Mariners allowed the FEU to seal the win with a 7-1 run.

“’Yun talaga lumalabas sa attitude eh. Tulad niyan, pagdating ng third set, hindi ko alam kung nag-relax, nagpigil ng galaw, o nag-iingat pero sana madevelop pa hanggang matapos ang liga natin.”

Kelvin Balanga and Keyvin Premaylon PMMS with nine points each as the Mariners remain winless in three matches.
