    Sta Lucia moves closer to quarterfinals with rout of UE

    Jul 7, 2018

    STA. Lucia inched closer to a quarterfinal seat in the Philippine Super Liga Invitational, beating University of the East-Cherrylume, 25-21, 25-20, 25-20, on Saturday at The Arena in San Juan.

    MJ Phillips had 18 points, 19 digs and six excellent receptions as the Lady Realtors improved to 2-2., behind Cignal at 3-0.

    Jonah Sabete had 10 markers for Sta. Lucia.

    “Ok naman ang laro ng UE Cherrylume, nandoon kasi ‘yung aggressiveness ng mga bata, ‘yun ‘yung kulang sa amin,” said Sta. Lucia coach George Pascua.

    Already at match point, 24-21, the Lady Realtors nearly squandered the lead, prompting Pascua to call a timeout, and UE’s run ended with a Mariella Gabarda service error.

    “Kaya ang ginawa ko, dahil kilala ko sila, nag-timeout na ako during that time (24-23) kasi nawawala na sila. Unfortunately nag-error ang kalaban, ibig sabihin, possible, kung hindi ako nagtimeout magtutuluy-tuloy pa ang UE,” said the veteran mentor.

    “‘Yun ang character na gusto ko mabago sa kanila, mabuti kung ano timeout 1-25 para timeout ako nang timeout para pagkamali ang kalaban pero two timeouts lang eh, tinatimingan ko rin ang pag-timeout,” he added.

    Mary Anne Mendrez scored 14 and Judith Abil added 12 points for UE-Cherrylume, which remained winless in three outings.
