Parang binigay na po nila sa amin (ang championship) -- Arocha on San Beda s meltdown in the third set

After stealing the second set in a dramatic come-from-behind fashion, Arellano University hitter Regine Arocha knew the title was already theirs for the taking. The Lady Chiefs smelled blood when they went on the first technical timeout of the third set with a comfortable cushion and with the first-time finalists San Beda University Lady Red Spikers scoreless and in disarray. It didn’t take long for Arellano U to complete a cold-blooded 25-13, 29-27, 25-15, sweep of San Beda in Game 2 of the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball Finals as the Lady Chiefs captured their first back-to-back titles Monday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. An 8-0 lead to open the third frame and with the Lady Red Spikers’ body language already showing signs of defeat for Arocha, the season’s Best Opposite Hitter, seemed like San Beda’s signal of raising the white flag.   “Opo, parang binigay na po nila sa amin, parang umayaw na po sila,” said Arocha, who broke the hearts of the Lady Red Spikers when she hit consecutive crosscourt hits to complete Arellano U’s comeback in the second frame. “Parang first five points pa lang po (sa third set), nararamdaman na po namin na sa amin na po (ang panalo),” added Arocha, who scored 14 of her 15 points off attacks and was later named as Finals Most Valuable Player. Arellano U took the fight out of San Beda in the second set after saving four set points. Arocha took advantage of the Lady Red Spikers’ error from the service line that tied the set at 27, pounding a crosscourt attack off the two-woman block of San Beda to put Arellano U at set point advantage, 28-27. She ended the comeback with another kill. San Beda never recovered from there and the Lady Chiefs grabbed the opportunity to extinguish the Lady Red Spikers’ will to fight as they built an 8-0 advantage that ballooned to 24-10. The Mendiola-based squad saved five match points but the championship was already in the bag for Arellano U that Lady Chiefs head coach Obet Javier didn’t even bother to call time.    Outgoing team captain Mary Anne Esguerra took the honor of burying the final nail to San Beda’s coffin with a swipe off the Lady Red Spikers’ two-woman block. The win also validated a tweet posted by Arocha on her Twitter account that last Sunday’s practice was Arellano U’s last for the season.   “Kahapon po, sobrang kinlaim na namin na last training na namin yun, na last game na namin ngayon,” she said. “Kaya po 'yun, pinagtrabahuhan talaga namin.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

UAAP VOLLEYBALL: UST silences Adamson in sweep

Depleted University of Sto. Tomas snapped Adamson University’s two-game winning streak with a 25-9,31-29, 25-19, victory Sunday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Coming off a four-set loss to Ateneo de Manila University a week ago and missing the services of injured Fil-Italian Milena Alessandrini and libero Rica Rivera, the Tigresses vented their ire on the Lady Falcons to even their record to 2-2 tied with their victim, the Lady Eagles and Far Eastern University. Sisi Rondina played her usual explosive game, firing 22 points off 17 kills, four aces and a kill block while adding 16 digs for an all-around effort for the Espana-based squad. Dimdim Pacres and Carla Sandoval stepped up to score 13 and nine markers, respectively, for the Tigresses, who lost Rivera to a meniscus tear on her right knee early in the opening set of their game against Ateneo and Alessandrini to a right shoulder injury. Rivera is out for at least three weeks while Alessandrini will skip the rest of the first round. "Sabi ko lahat ng nangyayari may reason. Ang mga locals ito na ang pagkakataon and nag-respond naman sila para sa mga nawala," said Tigresses coach Kungfu Reyes.   UST was on fire to open the match but found trouble in the second set. But a gritty comeback in the second frame highlighted by saving five set points took the fight out of the Lady Falcons that the Tigers used as fuel to cruise in the third. Jema Galanza finished with 10 points while Mylene Paat and rookie Chiara Permentilla were limited to a combined 12 markers for Adamson.      --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

(Kung) maibibigay sa akin ang bola, papatayin ko -- Jaja Santiago

Jaja Santiago was put on a leash with National University trailing defending two-time champion De La Salle University by four points in the closing stretch of the fifth set. Sitting on the bench after rotating at the back row, the graduating hitter could only just pray for her teammates to hold the fort.    “Siyempre kinakabahan ako pero kino-compose ko pa rin ang sarili ko na hindi, kahit wala ako sa loob, makukuha namin ito,” said Santiago. “Kung maabot ako sa unahan, ibibigay ko ang 100-plus percent ko para sa team.” The Lady Spikers made a grave mistake of giving NU a chance to get the 6-foot-5 Santiago back on court. Once inside, Santiago erupted with crucial kills to carry the Lady Bulldogs to a 26-24, 19-25, 22-25, 25-17, 16-14, win Sunday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Santiago submitted 27 points anchored on a crisp 20-of-43 attacking clip but heroics down the stretch highlighted her performance that helped the Lady Bulldogs preserve their pristine 4-0 win-loss record.   NU trailed DLSU, 8-12, in the fifth set with Santiago substituted to the bench. Aiko Urdas’ kill put Santiago back on the floor and the hitter worked her magic to shock DLSU. Santiago pounded a kill to put NU at match point, 14-13. Kim Kianna Dy answered with a hit before Santiago gave the Lady Bulldogs their second match point off a thunderous spike.     Urdas sealed the morale-boosting win with a service ace. Asked if she took it to herself to provide the much-needed points, Santiago responded with authority.   “(Kung) mabibigay sa akin 'yung bola, papatayin at papatayin ko. Walang hesitation,” she said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles        .....»»

Manabat, Kanda lead Foton in opening day win

Games Tuesday (Bacoor Sports Center) 4:15 p.m. —- SLR vs Generika-Ayala 7:00 p.m. -— Cocolife vs Cignal   Dindin Manabat announced her return on a sizzling note as she powered Foton to a 25-19, 22-25, 25-16, 25-22 victory over Generika-Ayala in the opening salvo of the 2018 Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix Saturday at the Ynares Sports Center in Pasig City. Sidelined with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury last year, the power-hitting Manabat led the Tornadoes' furious run in the third and fourth sets to emerge victorious. Manabat fired eight kills and a game-high five aces to finish with 14 points, while American import Brooke Kanda delivered 17 attacks and two blocks to finish with 21 points for the Tornadoes, who are looking for a rebound after losing the Grand Prix crown to F2 Logistics last year. Canadian reinforcement Elizabeth Wendel tallied 11 points in her debut. Foton lost the battle in the attack zone, 42-44, but it ruled the blocking department, 8-2, and had more aces, 13-6, to underscore their dominance in the match that lasted for one hour and 36 minutes. Still, new head coach Rommel Abella stressed that they are still far from gaining their championship form. “If I’ll put a number on it, I think around 60 to 70 percent pa lang,” said Abella, who took over the slot left by Serbian coach Moro Branislav. “We’re still a bit stiff and jittery. Hopefully, we could eliminate all the mistakes we had. Anyway, this is still a very good start,” he said. Abella added that although he was expecting more from their imports, the collective effort of the Tornadoes was enough to carry them through. “We were expecting a little more,” he said. “But since this is just their first game here in the Philippines, their performance was still acceptable. Hopefully, they can provide us with a little more offense in our next game.” But the day obviously belonged to Manabat. Looking fit and deadly after 10 months of rehabilitation and therapy, Manabat was impressive on both ends, especially in the third set where the Tornadoes erected a 12-point advantage, 20-8, to clinch the set victory and build enough momentum for the deciding set. The Lifesavers hung around and tried to extend the game to a fifth set, 21-23, but Manabat scored on a sharp kill to claim the match point, 24-21, before Kranda connected a strong hit to seal the victory. “All Dindin needs was mind-setting,” said Abella. “We always ask the PT (physical therapist) about the status of her injury and they always say that it’s a hundred percent healed. So, it's a good thing she stepped up in this game.” Darlene Ramdin of Trinidad and Tobago finished with 19 points while Symone Hayden of United States added seven markers for the Lifesavers, who were off to a slow start under the tutelage of new head coach Sherwin Meneses......»»

Stalzer fires 30 points in Petron s debut win

Games Tuesday: (Bacoor Sports Center) 4:15 p.m. —- SLR vs Generika-Ayala 7:00 p.m. -— Cocolife vs Cignal   Petron crushed Sta.

Lindsay Stalzer picked up where she left off, erupting for 22 kills, six aces and two blocks for 30 points while Hillary Hurley had 18 markers for the Blaze Spikers, who are eager to avenge their sorry finals meltdown to F2 Logistics last season. “We want to start the season on a high note,” said Petron coach Shaq Delos Santos, whose wards unleashed their fighting form in the third set before going for the kill in the fourth to avoid an opening-day mishap. “This is the kind of game I expect on opening day. I’m glad the girls responded well and embraced the challenge.” Ukrainian Bohdana Anisova provided the spark with 18 points while MJ Philips chipped in 16 markers for the Lady Realtors......»»

Arellano U moves closer to back-to-back titles

Defending champion Arellano University went through the wringer before eking out a thrilling 25-15, 25-16, 15-25, 22-25, 15-6, win over upset-conscious San Beda University in Game 1 of the best-of-three 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition Finals series Friday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Chiefs woke up just in time after squandering a two-set lead, blasting a 9-0 run to break a 6-6 deadlock in the fifth set capped by a heady drop by Sarah Verutiao towards an unmarked spot in the Lady Spikers’ front row for the win. Regine Arocha finished with 14 points with 10 coming off kills including the hit that pushed the Lady Chiefs at match point. Jovielyn Prado had an all-around game with 13 markers and a good defensive effort of 13 digs and eight excellent receptions for Arellano U, which closed in on claiming its third title in the last four years. Andrea Marzan had 11 points while Rookie of the Year Necole Ebuen and skipper Mary Anne Esguerra chipped in with 10 markers each for the Lady Chiefs.      Game 2 is on Monday. After struggling to get its rhythm going in the first two sets, San Beda breathed new life in their rematch against the same squad that swept them in the elims in the third. The Lady Red Spikers controlled the frame to extend the match. San Beda forced a decider after Season 92 Rookie of the Year Cesca Racraquin sparked the Lady Spikers’ 3-point blitz to break a 21-21 tie in the fourth frame off a service ace. Nieza Viray committed an error on the next play before San Beda put the match into a sudden death. Racraquin got 21 points on 16 attacks, four aces and a kill block while adding 23 excellent receptions and 21 digs for the Mendiola-based squad, who are on its first finals appearance.  Viray and Trisha Paras registered 14 and 11 markers, respectively, for the Lady Red Spikers.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
