PVL: Falcons eye solo lead

Adamson University sets its sights on claiming the solo lead when the Falcons square off with Far Eastern University Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference men’s division at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Adamson-FEU tussle will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the curtain-raiser of the four-game playdate. The Falcons share the lead with idle University of Sto. Tomas with perfect 4-0 win-loss slate. Adamson made short work of defending NCAA champion University of Perpetual Help, 25-15, 25-21, 25-12, last Sunday with skipper Paolo Pablico and Leo Miranda leading the way.

FEU snapped out of its funk last week at the expense of winless De La Salle University in straight sets. The Tams are tied with College of St. Benilde and San Beda University with 1-2 cards. Meanwhile, the Red Spikers take on Arellano University at 11:00 a.m. followed by National University’s attempt to preserve its pristine record against University of the Philippines while Perpetual and CSB cap the long day with their 6:00 p.m. battle. The Bulldogs are currently behind UST and Adamson with 3-0 record. UP holds a 2-1 mark, Perpetual sports a 1-3 card while Arellano is winless in three starts.   ---     Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
