UAAP 81 Football: UST demolishes DLSU on opening day

Season 80 runners up University of Santo Tomas wasted no time in getting on the board, as the Growling Tigers demolished De La Salle University, 3-1 on opening day of the UAAP Season 81 Men s Football Tournament, Sunday afternoon at the FEU-FERN Football Field in Diliman, Quezon City.  Armed with 13 rookies, the Green Archers were looking to make a statement early in the season, and early in the match, it looked like they were primed for a big win after one of those new faces, John Rey Lagura, connected on his first UAAP goal to put DLSU ahead, 1-0 in the 14th minute.  The Green Archer advantage didn t last too long, as Conrad Dimacali responded in the 17th minute to help the Growling Tigers pull even  UST moved into the driver s seat heading into the midgame break, thanks to a 36th minute conversion from Juan Villanueva to make it 2-1.  Action picked up in the second half, as De La Salle looked to rally back, but instead it was UST who found the back of the net once again, with rookie Glen Ramos also hitting his first UAAP goal to put the Growling Tigers ahead, 3-1.  DLSU attempted once last push, but yielded no results, as UST coasted to a big opening day victory.  "Every tournament, especially sa UAAP, mas maganda talaga na makakuha ka kaagad ng three points, pero nag-start kami kanina na masiyadong mababa yung laro namin, medyo yung fitness namin, hindi kami makahawak ng bola," explained UST head coach Marjo Allado after the match. "La Salle is very dangerous in transitions, and buti na lang, yung dalawang free kicks namin, na-convert namin kanina."  "So far, it s a good result for the UST Men s Team sa opening game," Allado added.  While it was a big win, Allado isn t completely happy with the result, noting that he felt his boys were a bit off.  "Naka-score kami ng three goals, pero my concern is yung laro namin kanina, this is not how we play eh. Siguro first game, parang naninibago lang yung mga players, especially yung ibang rookies."  UST opens the season with a win and three points. .....»»

UAAP Season 81: Tigresses survive Lady Falcons scare

University of Sto. Tomas flirted with disaster before eking out a 25-21, 25-21, 24-26, 24-26, 15-6, win over Adamson University in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament Sunday at the MOA Arena. The Tigresses opened a five-point lead in the fifth set after yielding the third and fourth frames that forced the decider to set up the tempo before finishing off the hard-fighting Lady Falcons. “The last three years lagi kaming talo sa first game namin and this is historic for us,” said UST coach Kungfu Reyes of the Tigresses opening day losing streak under his watch.  Sisi Rondina and Milena Alessandrini delivered the goods while sophomore Eya Laure lived up to the pre-season hype to help the Espana-based squad, which snapped a seven-year opening day losing slump. Laure made her presence felt with 17 points of 13 attacks, three kill blocks and an ace while graduating hitter Rondina poured 17 markers and tallied 17 digs to start her final season with the Tigresses, who rained down 50 attacks and landed 11 aces.    Alessandrini, last year s rookie of year, got 15 points while freshman Kecelyn Galdones had eigt markers for UST. The Tigresses started the fifth set with a 5-0 lead before breaking the set wide open with a 13-4 advantage as Adamson s confidence crumbled.  UST started the game firing on all cylinders to grab a 2-0 match lead but allowed the Lady Falcons to mount a comeback. The Tigresses squandered a 19-16 lead in the third set as Adamson blasted a 5-1 counterattack for a 21-20 advantage.   Adamson moved at set point, 24-21, before Rondina sparked UST s comeback to force a deuce. Eli Soyud took matters on her own hands in the next plays, scoring  the last two points of the Lady Falcons. Adamson controlled the early goings of the fourth frame and built a 15-6 lead. The Tigresses clawed their way back in the game and overtook Adamson, 23-19. UST moved at match point, 24-21, but a couple of attack errors and Joy Dacoron s back-to-back hits gave the Lady Falcons a 25-24 advantage. UST yielded the set after getting whistled with a net touch.          Bernadette Flora paced Adamson with 14 points while Eli Soyud and Chiara Permentilla chipped in with 13 and 12 markers, respectively. Dacoron posted 10 points while rookie setter Nikka Yandoc tallied 34 excellent sets for the Lady Falcons.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UAAP 81 Football: Four Tamaraws score as FEU drops UE, 4-1

Far Eastern University picked up a massive opening day win as they trounced University of the East, 4-1, Sunday afternoon at the FEU-FERN Football Field in Diliman, Quezon City. Coming off their worst campaign in years, finishing seventh in UAAP Season 80, FEU looked every bit like the program that once won back-to-back titles as they dominated a contender in UE. Early on however, it looked like the Red Warriors were primed to get on the board first after a foul inside the box from FEU resulted in a penalty attempt from for UE. Red Warriors striker Mar Diano flubbed the penalty attempt however, as his shot hit the cross bar and bounced out. Immediately on the other end, it was FEU who drew first blood, with rookie Jermi Darapan scoring in the 29th minute. Three minutes into the second half, former Baby Tamaraws star Chester Gio Pabualan announced his arrival into the men’s tournament with a header to give the Tamaraws a 2-0 advantage. Opening day was a good one for tournament rookies, as the Red Warriors managed to pull one back in the 51st minute courtesy of first year-wingback Champ Marin, who became the fourth rookie to score a goal in the first matchday. The Tamaraws regained momentum as they widened their advantage to 3-1, courtesy of a free kick conversion from Nicky Canonigo in the 60th minute. FEU continued to pull away in the 66th minute, with Alex Rayos blasting one from way outside the box to make it a three-goal advantage for the Tamaraws. "Winning the first game of the season is the most important," said head coach Bobae Park. "Our players, I know they re also a little bit nervous, but they just tried their best, and their spirit is together."  With the win, FEU joins UST at the top of the early leaderboard with a win and three points each. .....»»

Daniel Chatman, National U pound on five-man UP in Got Skills

2019 HARD TO GUARD STANDINGS NU 3-1 TRINITY 3-1 UST 3-1 LYCEUM 3-2 TIP 3-3 UP 2-3 STI BALAGTAS 2-4 UCC 0-4 Daniel Chatman and National U did nothing but take advantage of severely shorthanded UP for an 82-59 win in the 2019 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Hard to Guard Tournament a week ago at the Trinity Gym in Quezon City. Chatman, a high-flying Filipino-American guard, scored 18 points and collected five rebounds, three assists, and two steals while hardworking forward Karl Penano contributed 13 markers and five boards. The contest was close for the first six minutes until Chapman and the Bulldogs outscored the Fighting Maroons, 32-18, up until halftime. National U would not be threatened from there en route to a bounce back win that improves its standing to 3-1. UP had four players in double-digits led by scoring guard Jaggie Gregorio with 20 points. Without substitutes in this game, however, they quickly ran out of gas for their third loss in five games. Meanwhile, UST also barged back into the win column after venting its ire on STI-Balagtas, 74-60. Versatile forward Makoy Marcos topped the scoring column for the now 3-1 Growling Tigers with 13 points. In other results, Trinity University downed UCC, 75-32, before defaulting to TIP six days later. Trinity University now stands at 3-1 while TIP is at 3-3 and UCC is at 0-4......»»

UAAP: Salamat sa pagdala ah -- Sisi Rondina on rookie Eya Laure

UST Golden Tigresses team captain Sisi Rondina can finally breathe a sigh of relief as she can already count on rookie Eya Laure as one of the members of her supporting cast in UAAP Season 81. Laure had an impressive debut for coach Emilio Kung Fu Reyes squad, scoring 17 points, including some impressive hits that solidified the hype surrounding her in UST s 25-21, 25-21, 24-26, 24-26, 15-6 win against Adamson at the Mall of Asia Arena Sunday afternoon. "Thank you ah. Patuloy niya lang ang ginagagwa niya. Malaking bagay talaga. Salamat sa pagdala ah," the graduating Rondina jokingly said on Laure s performance.  "Oo, sobra. Ano na eh. Mabilis na silang utusan, ganito, ganyan. Command pa lang sumusunod na. So walang problema. Ako lang talaga," the skipper added when talking about easing her burden as UST s main woman.  Adamson s net defense certainly made Rondina bleed for her game-high 17-point effort, as Coach Air Padda s girls made her a marked hitter, especially in the third and fourth sets, where Adamson was able to force a deciding fifth set.  But unlike last year, where Rondina had a herculean effort as the top scorer of the UAAP with 21.8 points but just resulted to three wins, she can finally take a back seat and rely on some of the young ones like rookies Laure, KC Galdones and sophomore Milena Alessandrini. "Pero ngayon kasi, makikita naman, makikita natin na andyan si Eya, may bagong pumasok. Then skills, kita naman. Yun. Okay naman, okay lang ako sa likod. Ang sarap magdepensa," shared Rondina. Even Reyes was relieved about the new support for his senior. "Alone, si Sisi nagi-iskor ng 30 points pero hindi nananalo. Di ko alam kung ano iniskor niya ngayon. Definitely double-digits. Pero may mga katulong na siya, kailangan maging balanse yung team. Ano lang, tao lang naman na nagkakamali, kailangan ng suporta." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary.   .....»»
