LA Salle’s Kim Fajardo and Cyd Demecillo needed three sets in their second match on Wednesday to finally beat Ateneo’s Alyssa Valdez and Bea Tan and book a return trip to the finals of the UAAP women's beach volleyball tournament at MOA Sands by the Bay.

Fajardo and Demecillo recovered from a sluggish start to win, 20-22, 21-14, 16-14, and set up a title showdown with Far Eastern University.

Ateneo on Saturday forced a second match against twice-to-beat La Salle with a 21-16, 24-22 win.
