    UNIVERSITY of Santo Tomas came out a bit steadier than Laoag in an error-marred fifth set, pulling off a 25-22, 25-27, 18-25, 27-25, 15-12 victory to clinch the first semifinal berth in the Shakey’s V-League Season 13 Reinforced Conference at the Philsports Arena on Wednesday.

    Cherry Rondina soared coming off a combination play to deliver the kill that finished off the Power Smashers and gave the Tigresses the first seat in the next round with a 5-1 card.

    EJ Laure picked up her game in the last two sets and turned in a 22-hit effort while Marivic Meneses added 14 points and Rondina chipped in 13 markers for the league’s winningest team with six championships.

    Laoag, led by Grethcel Soltones’ 27 hits, slid to joint fifth at 2-3 with Air Force and UP.
