PVL: Madayag shows leadership, maturity in win

Graduating player Maddie Madayag felt that she needed to do something after Ateneo-Motolite went down 1-2 in their match against Tacloban Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference. “Gising na Maddie,” she told herself. Snapping out of a slump, Madayag delivered the spark that the fueled the Lady Eagles’ impressive push in the closing stretch of the fifth frame to extend their winning run to three and move up to a share of the lead with a 25-18, 19-25, 11-25, 25-17, 15-11, come-from-behind win over the Fighting Warays. “Medyo lutang kanina,” admitted Madayag, who scored 12 points and was a monster at the net with five kill blocks. Ateneo-Motolite moved to a share of the lead with Creamline and BanKo with 5-1 win-loss slate. Madayag scored three points in the fifth set including a quick attack that gave the Lady Eagles a 9-5 lead. The Ateneo-Motolite senior also played a huge role in the Lady Eagles’ fightback after Tacloban closed the gap at 9-8, hitting a down the line spike that fueled a 4-1 burst for a 13-9 advantage. “’Yun nga kailangan ko ipakita sa mga bata kasi kung ano ‘yung makikita nila yun din gagawin nila,” she said. “Kasi nga seniors, so kung ano makikita nila sa mga ate even sa training so parang if I show them the fighting spirit yun din makukuha din nila.” “’Yun kasi para ma-adapt nila na, ‘I need to fight, I really need to fight sa game,’” Madayag added. With Madayag leading the way in the crucial junction of the match, Ateneo-Motolite escaped with its second straight five-setter game and third win in a duel that went the full distance.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»
