    DASMARINAS, Cavite - Home bets Giselle Bembo and Maribeth Lara dominated the first leg of the 11th Petron Ladies’ Beach Volleyball Tournament at the De La Salle Health Sciences Institute campus.

    The pair capped their five-game winning run with a 21-17 win over Rizal Technological University-1 spikers Jessa Aranda and Jonafer San Pedro in this beach volley extravaganza backed by Petron and Mikasa Balls.

    The win allowed Bembo to claim her second title in the event. She and former teammate Jennifer Manzano took the title last year at the expense of University of the East bets Francislyn Cais and Jessica Paron.

    After Aranda and San Pedro threatened for the last time at 7-9, the La Salle-Dasma bets unleashed seven straight points, three on kills by Lara, plus two service winners by Bembo, to cut loose at 16-7.

    “Masaya kami sa panalo. Hindi namin inaasahan ito,” said Bembo, a 20-year-old mass communications student.

    Aranda and San Pedro turned back promising Philippine School of Business Administration spikers Naomi Lei Otoshi and Joan Marvie Morata, 21-8, in the other semis playoff.

    Winners and runners-up of each of the volleyball leg will earn berths to the Petron Battle of Champions at year’s end.
