After suffering an upset in the hands of the UST Lady Tigresses last Sunday, the DLSU Lady Spikers bounced back defeat the Adamson Lady Falcons, 26-24 25-19 25-18, on Saturday at The Arena in San Juan.

Up 23-18 in the third, the Lady Spikers let Adamson commit back to back errors to take their first win in two outings.

Luisa Zapanta led Adamson with 11, while Sheila Pineda chipped in 10. Team captain Pau Soriano had nine, as the Falcons slide down to 1-1.

In the earlier match, Far Eastern University recovered from an opening day loss to Adamson, this time winning against the University of the Philippines in straight sets, 25-14 25-14 27-25.

Tied at 25-all in the third set, a UP error gave FEU match point, before a Rosemarie Vargas service ace gave the Recto-based squad the victory.

Vargas had 17 points with six aces and a block, while Wenneth Eulalio top-scored with 19.

Six teams are all tied at 1-1, except for Ateneo who have a 2-0 win-loss slate. University of the East have yet to win one at 0-2. - RAF, GMA News

Jeushl Tiu of La Salle tries to force a shot through the defense of FEU's Gyzelle Sy. Jomar Galvez
DEFENDING champion La Salle feasted on Far Eastern University’s porous defense and scored a 25-19, 25-16, 25-16 win on Thursday in the 75th UAAP women's volleyball at the San Juan Arena.

Down by four, 1-5, at the start of the third set, the Lady Spikers fought back and went on a 6-1 run sparked by a Mika Reyes service ace to regain control and record their second victory in three outings.

The Lady Spikers also showed they have toughened up on defense, coming up with 11 blocks against none by FEU.

Although the straight-set win was impressive, the shaky third set disappointed DLSU coach Ramil de Jesus.

“Nakukulangan pa rin ako," said De Jesus. "Slow start kami. Titignan muna pano ang laro ng kalaban naghihintay kung sino ang magsa-spark sa team, so medyo nakukulangan ako."

Victorana Galang had 15 points on nine hits, three block points and three service aces, while Jeushl Wensh Tiu and Abigail Marano added 11 and 10 markers, respectively, for DLSU.

Rosamarie Galang finished with 14 points as FEU (1-2).

Meanwhile, Adamson University bested University of the Philippines, 25-12, 25-19, 25-13.

Shiela Marie Pineda had a game-high 16 points, while Ma. Paulina Soriano and Luisa Zapanta chipped in 11 markers apiece for Adamson.

Liezchel Tiu produced seven points for UP.

In the men's tourney, National University defeated University of the East 23-25, 25-15, 25-23, 25-16,

Jan Berlin Paglinawan finished with 20 points on 15 attacks two block points and three service aces as the Bulldogs scored their third straight victory.

Peter Den Man Torres and Edwin Tolentino had 13 points, while Reuben Inaudito had 10 for NU.

Homer Lauresta had 14 points and Angelo Torres added 13 markers for UE (1-2).

Defending champion Far Eastern University beat La Salle, 25-23, 25-17, 26-24.

Arvil Avila led the Tamaraws with 16 points, while Karl Ian dela Calzada and John Ian Depamaylo chipped in 13 and 10, respectively.

Adamson trounces FEU for 3rd win
By Josiah Albelda Posted Dec 16th 2012

Adamson University notched its third win with a three-set triumph over Far Eastern University.

Bang Pineda made Far Eastern University the latest target of her "bang-bang" act.

The power-hitting spiker nailed 14 attacks as Adamson University battered the Lady Tamaraws in straight sets for their third victory in the 75th UAAP women's volleyball tournament Sunday at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Pineda added a block to finish with a game-best 15 points and nine digs for the Lady Falcons, who tied for second place in the tourney following the impressive 25-18, 25-18, 25-14 win over their traditional rivals.

Veteran Pau Soriano added 12 markers while Mayette Zapanta and Faye Guevarra chipped in with seven points each as Adamson came back from an early deficit in the first set to dictate the tone for the rest of the match.

The Lady Falcons' attackers were on target for the most part, burying 39 of their attempts as FEU's defense proved shaky.

Adamson also limited the Lady Tamaraws to a forgettable 23 points off attacks, with their blocking and floor defense --- anchored by Pineda and libero Princess Listana --- holding fort against one of the league's most potent offenses.

Rose Vargas led FEU with 10 points but could only hit 20% of her attempts as the Morayta-based squad skidded to their third loss in four games, in a tie for seventh.

UAAP women’s volleyball: Soriano, Pineda deliver as Adamson nips Ateneo
By Celest R. Flores


8:48 pm | Sunday, January 20th, 2013 67 227 139MANILA, Philippines—Pau Soriano and Sheila Pineda took charge late in the game as Adamson subdued Alyssa Valdez and Ateneo, 25-21, 25-22, 19-25, 16-25, 15-10, Sunday in the 75th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament Sunday at the Arena in San Juan city.

Veteran Soriano and emerging star Pineda conspired for the Lady Falcons’ last three points to seal their fifth victory and a shared third spot in the standings as the second round continues.

After being dragged once more to a fifth set by the Lady Eagles, it was the Lady Falcons who steadied down this time, thanks to Soriano’s kill and Pineda’s back-to-back service aces to notch their third straight win.

“It’s a big win because we moved closer to number two,” said Adamson coach Sherwin Meneses in Filipino. “The floor defense is already there, but we still have to work on our blocking.”

Pineda finished with 19 points, including back-to-back service winners in the final set, while Mayette Zapanta added 15 points and Soriano 14 for the Lady Falcons.

The Lady Eagles absorbed their second setback despite a record-breaking performance of Valdez, who fired 35 big hits to set a new league record in most points scored in a game.

Ateneo, though, remained in second place (6-2) behind league-pacing, defending champion La Salle (7-1).

Earlier, Marie Toni Basas played another career game under returning coach Kid Santos as Far Eastern University opened its second-round campaign with a 25-14, 25-22, 25-15 win over University of the East.

Basas finished with a personal-best 17 points, including three aces, for the Lady Tamaraws, who have won three straight since Santos took over the coaching reins from Nes Pamilar.

FEU improved to 4-4 and tied with National University.

Shiesa Nebrida and Sarina Bulan combined for 17 hits for the Lady Warriors, who stayed winless in the competition reeling to their eighth straight loss.

FEU, UP pull off tough wins in UAAP men’s volleyball
By Celest R. Flores

4:14 pm | Sunday, January 20th, 2013 MANILA, Philippines — Karl Ian Dela Calzada dropped 23 points to steer Far Eastern University past La Salle 22-25, 25-19, 25-21, 26-28, 15-13 Sunday in the 75th UAAP men’s volleyball tournament at the Arena in San Juan.

The Tamaraws ground it out to bag their seventh victory, with just one loss, as all but one scorers finished in double digits.

John Ian Depamaylo and Gene Lucky Margate chipped in 13 markers apiece while Paulo Deocampo and Alexis Faytaren added 12 and 11, respectively.

Christopher Antonio powered to a 30-point performance, 25 off spikes, but the Archer Spikers dropped to distant third with a 4-4 record.

Meanwhile, University of the Philippines edge Ateneo, 25-21, 17-25, 25-20, 21-25, 15-10, in the other men’s match.

The Maroons, though, remain in the bottom three as they tied the Blue Eagles with a 2-6 record.

Lady Eagles seek to end two-game skid vs. FEU
By Anthony Divinagracia Posted Jan 23rd 2013

Tags: Preview Email

The second-running Lady Eagles hope to regain their winning form after back-to-back losses when they meet the Lady Tamaraws at 3:30 p.m.
No doubt, Ateneo de Manila University remains season heavyweight.

But for the Lady Eagles to keep this stature intact, the erstwhile league leaders must arrest a two-game slide today against dangerous Far Eastern University (FEU) in the second round of the 75th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the San Juan Arena.

The second-running Lady Eagles (6-2) hope to regain their winning form after back-to-back losses when they meet the Lady Tamaraws (4-4) at 3:30 p.m.

Ateneo is coming off a tough 22-25, 21-25, 25-19, 25-16, 10-15 loss to Adamson University last Sunday.

FEU on the other hand swept University of the East, 25-14, 25-22, 25-15, also in the same playdate.

Scoring leader Alyssa Valdez fired new career high 35 points, including 31 kills, but couldn’t single-handedly lift the Lady Eagles past the unrelenting Lady Falcons, who are now tied for third at 5-3.

Before the Adamson defeat, the Lady Eagles took a stinging 28-26, 25-21, 25-13, 21-25, 13-15 loss to defending champion De La Salle University, which vaulted on top with a 7-1 record.

More than redemption, the Lady Eagles need a confidence-restoring victory at this point to keep their title hopes on track.

The Lady Tamaraws meanwhile hope to get back at Ateneo, which dealt them a 25-19, 25-22, 6-25, 25-27, 15-9 loss on opening day. A victory by the Lady Tamaraws puts them in fourth place at 5-4, and probably in a tie with host National University which faces lowly University of the Philippines in the first game.

The UAAP volleyball games can be seen live starting at 2 p.m. on Studio 23 and BALLS HD 167 with a replay at 9 p.m. on BALLS SkyCable Channel 34 or Destiny Channel 36.

Lady Tams extend Lady Eagles' slump

Posted at 01/24/2013 1:33 PM | Updated as of 01/24/2013 1:33 PM

MANILA, Philippines – The Far Eastern University (FEU) Lady Tamaraws dealt the slumping Ateneo Lady Eagles their third straight loss in their second-round meeting in the UAAP Season 75 women's volleyball tournament Wednesday at the San Juan Arena.

Four players scored in double figures for the Lady Tams as they easily handled the Lady Eagles in straight sets, 25-20, 25-17 and 25-16.

Rosemarie Vargas and Marjorie Roxas each scored 11 points, while Marie Toni Basas and Wenneth Eulalio added 10 each.

Meanwhile, only Alyssa Valdez finished in double figures for the Lady Eagles with 15 points.

Ateneo continues to play without injured spiker Fille Cainglet, and veterans Dzi Gervacio and Gretchen Ho provided little help as the two only had five points combined.

The Lady Eagles have now lost their last three contests after winning their first six matches of the season.

The Lady Tamaraws, meanwhile, are headed the opposite direction as they won their fourth straight match and tied National University (NU) in the league standings with a 5-4 record.

It was also sweet revenge for the Lady Tams, who lost to the Lady Eagles in five sets in their first meeting this season.

Ateneo now has a 6-3 record.

In the first game of the double-header, the NU Lady Bulldogs defeated the University of the Philippines Lady Maroons in straight sets, 25-19, 25-18 and 25-18.

Skipper Aleona Santiago led the way for NU with 16 points, while Myla Pablo added 12 markers

Streaking FEU whips struggling Ateneo as Cainglet sits out
By Mark Giongco

6:51 pm | Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013 8 67 5MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University stunned Ateneo, 25-20, 25-17, 25-16, Wednesday in the UAAP Season 75 women’s volleyball tournament at the Arena in San Juan.

Head coach Kid Santos, though, wasn’t surprised at all following his team’s masterful win of the Lady Eagles, who have now reeled to their third straight setback after a 6-0 start.

“I told my players that (we can win in straight sets),” said Santos, who was handed the coaching reins, replacing Nestor Pamilar after FEU’s 1-3 start. “Kahit 80 percent lang laruin nila mananalo kami in three sets or kung hindi kahit four sets basta alam ko mananalo kami.”

FEU streaked to its fourth straight win, improving its record to 4-1 since Santos called the shots and 5-4 overall to tie NU in fourth place.

“They (my players) believe in themselves.”

The Lady Tams controlled the game from the get-go with both their defense and offense in high gear.

FEU drew a balanced attack from its scorers with Marjorie Roxas and Rosemarie Vargas tallying 11 points each.

Wenneth Eulalio and Marie Toni Basas added 10 apiece while Mary Palma registered eight points.

FEU pulled away from an 11-10 third-set lead as it pounced on Ateneo’s poor reception to build a 23-15 advantage.

“Ganun lang naman talaga, kailangan lang ng tiyaga, hindi mo mabibigla,” added Santos.

The Lady Tamaraws’ solid defense limited explosive scorer Alyssa Valdez to just 15 points after going off for a league-high 35 markers in the Lady Eagles’ sorry loss to Adamson, 25-22, 25-21, 19-25, 16-25, 10-15, last Sunday.

The Lady Eagles, who are in danger of falling out of the No.2 spot at 6-3, visibly missed the absence of Fille Cainglet for the third straight game.

Cainglet rolled her right ankle during a game against De La Salle.

Valdez, the former University of Santo Tomas star in high school, kept her team afloat in the early part of the third set, racking up three straight points to cut the deficit to two, 6-8.

Ateneo though, just couldn’t get into the flow of things with FEU holding its own defensively. A block by Vargas widened the Lady Tams’ gap to five, 16-11, in the third set.

Valdez’s attempt was too strong, allowing FEU to go into match point, 24-15.

Streaking FEU takes on UP
By Josiah Albelda Posted Jan 26th 2013

Far Eastern University goes for its fifth straight win as it tangles with skidding University of the Philippines.

Far Eastern University aims to make it five in a row when they meet still slumping University of the Philippines in a Saturday clash in the 75th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

After scoring a massive upset last Wednesday against Ateneo de Manila University, the Lady Tamaraws are expected to simply cruise past a team they handily defeated in the first round.

FEU rampaged past the Lady Maroons, 25-14, 25-14, 27-25, behind Wenneth Eulalio and Rose Vargas, who combined to bamboozle UP with 19 and 17 points, respectively.

And after a three-game losing streak after that, the Lady Tamaraws have risen into contention and won their next four games to tie National University for fifth.

Vargas and Eulalio, together with a surging Toni Basas, lead FEU’s charge and they will be up against the Lady Maroons’ rookie corps in Aliyah Ong, Kathy Bersola and Princess Gaiser.

Lady Tams mangle Lady Maroons for 5th straight win
By Josiah Albelda Posted Jan 26th 2013

Far Eastern University toyed with a listless University of the Philippines squad to score an easy straight-sets triumph in the 75th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

The Lady Tamaraws barely broke a sweat but their efforts were enough to hand the Lady Maroons a tough 25-8, 25-12, 25-12 beating to post their fifth straight victory in the league.

Rose Vargas top scored for FEU with 12 points off eight hits and four aces while Wenneth Eulalio and Toni Basas each chipped in eight markers for the Lady Tamaraws, who spent just 62 minutes in disposing of UP.

The Morayta-based squad’s attackers proved too much for the Lady Maroons, as FEU connected on 39 kills while also serving up eight aces in sending their foes to their ninth straight loss.

May Roxas and Remy Palma also added eight points apiece even as Gyzelle Sy had 21 excellent sets on top of her two points.

The Lady Tamaraws gave the Diliman six no room to rally, coming up with run after run to move up to the top four in the standings.

Rookie Aliyah Ong led UP with five points and fellow freshmen Hannah Mangulabnan and Nicole Tiamzon each had three for the 1-9 Lady Maroons.

Lady Falcons outlast Lady Tams to keep bid for 2nd alive
By Josiah Albelda Posted Feb 11th 2013

Adamson University outlasted Far Eastern University in five sets during their second round encounter in the UAAP 75 women's volleyball tournament.

Shiela Pineda came through in the clutch to propel Adamson University to a pulsating five-set victory over Far Eastern University to keep their bid for a twice-to-beat seat alive in the 75th UAAP women's volleyball tournament Sunday at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Pineda delivered the go-ahead attack that sent the Lady Falcons to match point as they outlasted the Lady Tamaraws, 22-25, 25-17, 15-25, 25-18, 15-13, to notch their eighth win in 12 outings.

Pineda totaled a season-high 20 points off 14 hits, five aces and a block while Mayette Zapanta had 16 points for Adamson, which moved just half-a-game behind second-running Ateneo de Manila University (9-4).

Both squads traded blows in the first four sets, with the Lady Falcons dominating in the second and the Lady Tamaraws mauling them in the third.

When it mattered most, however, it was Pineda who delivered the goods for Coach Sherwin Meneses as the Lady Falcons hope to erase of their ouster from the Final Four race last season.

After a Rose Vargas hit put FEU up, 13-12, in the deciding set, Pineda responded with an off-speed attack to tie it before serving up an ace to give Adamson the lead for good.

Zapanta sealed the deal for the San Marcelino-based spikers with an attack that went through the block.

Vargas had success piercing through the Lady Falcons' defense and finished with 24 points off 19 hits, three aces and two blocks while Wenneth Eulalio had 19 markers off 15 kills, three aces and a block.

The loss sent FEU in a tie with National University for fifth to sixth spots with a 6-6 record.

Tigresses hope to complete semis cast

Maru Banaticla and the UST Tigresses try to seal their place in the semifinals with an elimination-round match to spare. Jerome Ascano
UNIVERSITY of Santo Tomas hopes to complete the semifinal cast with a match to spare and avoid any complications in the Final Four race as it takes on Far Eastern University on Wednesday in the 75th UAAP season women’s volleyball tournament at The Arena in San Juan.

A win by the Tigresses (7-5) in the 3:30 p.m. match could secure their place in the semifinals behind league-leading La Salle (12-1), Ateneo (9-4) and Adamson (8-4) with one elimination-round match to spare.

An FEU (6-6) victory will force a tie for fourth spot with UST, while National University (6-6) could also create a logjam if it can turn back Adamson in the 2 p.m. match.

That would mean the semifinal cast will be determined on the final day of eliminations.

Aside from trying to secure their place in the semifinals, the Tigresses are also looking to avenge their first-round loss to FEU.

“Our last two games in the eliminations are FEU and Ateneo so ang immediate goal namin ay mabawian namin sila sa mga talo namin sa first round,” said UST coach Odjie Mamon.

“Babawi kami syempre,” added Tigresses skipper Judy Caballejo. “Dapat di mawala ang eagerness namin sa panalo kasi ayaw namin malaglag sa Final Four. Yung skills andoon na, kulang na lang yung puso sa loob ng court.”

Caballejo and fellow seniors Maika Ortiz and Maru Banaticla are expected take charge as sophomores Pam Lastimosa and Carmela Tunay provide the added boost for UST.

FEU will try to end its two-game skid after winning five consecutive matches under returning coach Kid Santos.

Meanwhile, Adamson will try to match the Lady Eagles record and boost its chances of claiming the twice-to-beat advantage in the semifinal round as they take on National University.

“Matibay din ang NU. Kapag hindi talaga nagsipag, baka matalo kami siyempre dahil malalaki sila. Mga breaks of the game ang talo nila, pero pipilitin namin dahil kailangang-kailangan namin ng panalo para sa twice-to-beat,” said Adamson coach Sherwin Meneses.

Adamson, which survived Far Eastern University on Sunday, 22-25, 25-17, 15-25, 25-18, 15-13, will again rely on the trio of Shiela Pineda, Mayeth Zapanta and team captain Pau Soriano.

UST battles FEU in crucial rematch

By Anthony Divinagracia Posted Feb 12th 2013

The Tigresses (7-5) and the Lady Tamaraws (6-6) battle for all the marbles in their 3:30 p.m. rematch, with both teams hoping to gain some momentum entering the playoffs.

Not yet out of the woods.

University of Santo Tomas (UST) and Far Eastern University (FEU) resume their mad hunt for a Final Four berth today as they clash in what could be a virtual eliminator leading to the semi-finals of the 75th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament.

The Tigresses (7-5) and the Lady Tamaraws (6-6) battle for all the marbles in their 3:30 p.m. rematch at the San Juan Arena, with both teams hoping to gain some momentum entering the playoffs.

For the Tigresses, a win against the Lady Tamaraws will give them an inside track for the last semis slot and preven either FEU or National University (NU) from sneaking into the Final Four frame. UST then wraps up its elimination campaign with a tough rematch against second-seeded Ateneo de Manila University on Sunday.

Like UST, the Lady Tamaraws also need this win badly to stay alive before meeting NU, which holds the same 6-6 card, for their final assignment next Saturday.

With its veterans stepping up big time, UST clobbered NU (25-21, 25-21, 23-25, 25-17) in a historic double-header at the jam-packed MOA Arena last Saturday.

Maika Ortiz scored 15 points while Caballejo added 14 to lead the Tigresses, who negated NU’s ceiling and blocking prowess by outscoring the Lady Bulldogs, 35-20, off turnovers. The Tigresses also nailed more kills, 50-42.

Sophomore Carmela Tunay equally made her presence felt with 12 attack points.

The Lady Tamaraws for their part is coming off a tough 20-25, 25-21, 25-20, 20-25, 15-12 loss to third-ranked Adamson University last Sunday.

Rosemarie Vargas top-scored with 24 points while Wenneth Eulalio and Marie Toni Basses contributed 19 and 13, respectively for FEU, which absorbed its second straight defeat.

Back in the first round, the Lady Tamaraws defanged the Tigresses, 22-25, 29-27, 25-18, 25-23.

The Tigresses leaned on the game-long brilliance of Maru Banaticla, Carmela Tunay, and Maika Ortiz to overcome a woeful first set and complete a 13-25, 25-23, 26-24, 25-21 fightback.

University of Santo Tomas (UST) shut the Final Four door on Far Eastern University (FEU) Wednesday as the Tigresses outplayed the Lady Tamaraws in the clutch to gain better positioning heading into the playoffs of the 75th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the San Juan Arena.

The Tigresses leaned on the game-long brilliance of Maru Banaticla, Carmela Tunay, and Maika Ortiz to overcome a woeful first set and complete a 13-25, 25-23, 26-24, 25-21 fightback that put UST in an 8-5 tie for third place with Adamson University.

Banaticla and Tunay scored 14 points each while Ortiz added 11 to lead the Tigresses who could still earn a playoff for a twice-to-beat advantage if they beat Ateneo de Manila University on Sunday.

FEU on the other hand is set to miss the Final Four anew even if it wins its last assignment against National University on Saturday with the Lady Tamaraws getting just a season-ending 7-7 card at best.

Rosemarie Vargas led four Lady Tamaraws in double figures with 12 points. Mayjorie Roxas and Wenneth Eulalio had 12 each while Remy Palma added 10.

NU and FEU will square off in the Finals in a battle between the league's new powerhouse and the most decorated team in the history of UAAP Men's Volleyball.

And it is set.

The new powerhouse will face off against the league’s most decorated team and reigning defending champion in the Finals.

National University ended Adamson University’s title aspirations by winning in four sets, 25-22, 22-25, 25-19, 25-20 while Far Eastern University disposed of De La Salle University in straight sets, 25-23, 25-21, 25-13 in the Final Four of the Men’s Volleyball tournament of UAAP Season 75 held last Saturday, February 23, 2013 at the historic Araneta Coliseum.

The Bulldogs utilized a balanced attack with four placers scoring in double digits. Talented third-year player Peter Torres led the way with 17 points while fellow middle hitter Reyson Fuentes contributed 13 markers of his own. Open spiker Berlin Paglinawan fired in 12 points while Team Captain Ben Inaudito tallied 11. NU also dominated the blocking department by registering 15 block points as compared to the Falcons’ 5.

League leading scorer Ron Jay Galang finished out his UAAP career with a 22 point performance. Adamson will also be losing three other starters to graduation in two-time Best Digger Gilbert Longavela, John Competente and Aramdo Maleon.

NU is in the Finals for the first time since the Final Four format was instituted in 1993. They will also be gunning for their first ever UAAP Men’s Volleyball crown.

In the other Final Four pairing, the defending champions easily manhandled a seemingly uninspired DLSU squad despite playing without injured Team Captain and star setter Pitrus de Ocampo. De Ocampo injured his right knee in FEU’s last game in the elimination round against NU. Although the fifth year player was in uniform, he was not fielded in by Head Coach George Pascua. Backup setter Manolo Refugia stepped up in his absence and played a splendid game.

The Tamaraws were led in scoring by the high flying Arvin Avila who finished with a game-high 17 points.

FEU is in the Finals for the fourth straight season and will be aiming for their 26th title overall. They are the winningest team in the history of the Men’s Volleyball tournament of the UAAP.

National University stormed back from two sets down to steal Game 1 of the UAAP 75 Men's Volleyball Finals from defending champion Far Eastern University.

One more game.

National University moved just one game away from a first title after sneaking past Far Eastern University in five thrilling sets in Game 1 of their 75th UAAP men's volleyball finals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Peter Torres spearheaded a mighty comeback for the Bulldogs, who clawed their way from two sets down to post the hard-earned 16-25, 18-25, 25-13, 25-17, 15-8 victory in 110 minutes.

Silent in the opening sets, Torres roared back with NU, scattering 18 points off 13 kills, four blocks and an ace while Reuben Inaudito added 16 off 10 hits, five blocks and an ace.

Jan Paglinawan and Reyson Fuentes also chipped in 14 and 12 points, respectively, as the Bulldogs avenged the only loss they suffered in the elimination round, where they went 13-1.

"Pinaghirapan namin makarating dito," Torres said. "Kaya ibinuhos na namin lahat."

The Tamaraws started quick, leaning on Arvin Avila and Karl dela Calzada to move on the verge of a Game 1 win.

But the Morayta-based squad fell into a maze of errors in the third set and, in the process, handed the momentum over to NU as the Bulldogs dominated the last three frames.

John Depamaylo carried the fight for FEU with 19 markers off 16 hits and three blocks even as Avila finished with 17 points.

Dela Calzada cooled off after a fast start and wounded up with 12 markers.

After their stunning loss last Saturday where they wasted a two-set lead, the Tamaraws came out strong and produced a strong start and a steadier finish.

Alexis Faytaren capped the victory with an off-speed attack that positioned FEU at match point and a block on former teammate Reyson Fuentes that tied the best-of-three series at 1-1.

"Natuto kami sa pagkatalo namin sa Game One," said Best Player of the Game Karl Ian dela Calzada. "Nakuha na namin first two sets ang learnings namin doon ay wala na ibang gagawin, tatapusin na namin and less errors."

Dela Calzada led the Morayta-based tossers with 18 points, while Faytaren chipped in 16, Ronald Tonquin added 10 and this year's Best Server and Best receiver Arvin Avila finished with 13 markers for FEU.

"Na-motivate yung mga bata sa willingness nila na manalo," said FEU coach George Pascua. "Binigyan na kami ng chance (ng Game Three) kaya iga-grab na namin at all out na kami at mas magiging aggressive kami."

Former Tamaraws Peter Torres, Jan Paglinawan and Fuentes led the Bulldogs with 13, 12 and eight markers, respectively, while team captain Reuben Inaudito added 12

Its basically Tams versus Tams. NU's sudden flow of cash are reaping dividends. Pirating players here and there.
