NCAA Season 95: Lady Altas score back-to-back wins

It wasn’t a pretty win but University of Perpetual Help head coach Macky Carino felt that his squad showed guts in carving out a 25-27, 25-23, 26-24, 14-25, 17-15, victory over Lyceum of the Philippines University for their second straight win in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition on Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Down big in a fourth set meltdown, the Lady Altas displayed nerves of steel in the frantic race to the finish in the deciding frame to improve to 2-1 win-loss record.      Jhona Rosal led Perpetual with 20 points anchored on 17 kills including the game-clinching hit while adding 16 excellent receptions and 10 digs. Bianca Tripoli had 19 markers while setter Jenny Gaviola got 10 points and dished out 13 excellent sets for the Lady Altas.   Carino admitted that the Lady Pirates seemed to be their perennial problem in the elimination round. Taking down LPU has never been easy for the Las Pinas-based squad in the past couple of seasons. “Last year din, five sets din kami niyan,” recalled Carino. "So parang, actually third game din namin 'yan against them, five sets din kami. So ngayon, at least ngayon, kahit papaano lumusot kami.” The Lady Altas went down as much as 12 points in the fourth and had to save a match point in the fifth after wasting an 11-9 lead.   “Pangit ng performance ng team ko ngayon, iba pa rin 'yung hindi sanay sa laruan, kulang sa experience,” said Carino, whose squad survived an error-filled outing after giving away 40 points off miscues. “Although majority naman ng nasa lineup ko, doon sa first six ko, naka-experience ng championship. Pero hindi pa rin sapat eh.” The Lady Altas saw their lead in the fifth evaporate and even went down, 14-13, after Shyra Umandal sent her serve wide. Tripoli broke the block in the next play before Hannah Suico gave Perpetual the match point advantage, 15-14. Tripoli sent her serve short for a 15-15 tie but a costly attack error by LPU’s Jacq Acuna off an overreceive by the Lady Altas set up Rosal’s game winner. The Lady Pirates suffered their third loss in as many games despite the efforts of Ciamelle Wanta, Alexandra Rafael and Mary Joy Onofre, who all scored 15 points each. Acuna finished with 15 while Monica Sevilla got 10 for LPU. Meanwhile, the two-time defending champion Altas made short work of the Pirates, 25-22, 33-31, 25-20, for a 3-0 record for the solo top spot in the men's division. Louie Ramirez exploded for 23 points with 22 coming off attacks while Ronniel Rosales had 15 for Perpetual, which won their 14th straight game overall since Season 93. LPU remained winless in three games. In juniors play, five-time defending champion Junior Altas improved to 3-0 after beating the Junior Pirates, 25-17, 25-17, 25-15.              --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 95: San Beda cruises to second straight win

Veteran hitter Cesca Racraquin once again starred for San Beda University as the Lady Red Spikers claimed its second straight win with a 25-13, 25-9, 25-21, drubbing of San Sebastian College on Tuesday in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The fourth year skipper finished with 19 points off 13 attacks and six aces and added three excellent receptions while providing stability for San Beda in the closing stretch of the third set to power the Lady Red Spikers to a 2-0 win-loss record, tied with three-time defending champion Arellano University. San Beda mentor Nemesio Gavino praised his wards for their great service game and for limiting their errors to just 15 compared to 36 miscues they committed in a five-set escape over Jose Rizal University the last time out. The Lady Red Spikers landed 13 aces and poured 36 attack points. “Na-lessen namin ang error namin tapos yung service, gumana ang service namin,” said Gavino. “Maraming naging ace ang nangyari so naging maganda para sa amin.” Nieza Viray added 14 points for San Beda while Ella Viray and Trisha Paras combined for 10 markers. After cruising in the first two sets and a great start in the third, the Mendiola-based squad suddenly found itself trailing the young Lady Stags, 17-18. The Lady Red Spikers answered with five straight points but SSC-R fought back to move within 23-21. Racraquin pushed San Beda to match point before Kim Manzano finished off the Lady Stags with a quick kill. No SSC-R player reached double-figure scoring with Shannai Requirme and Reyann Canete piling up eight and seven points, respectively, in the Lady Stags’ third loss in as many games tied with Lyceum of the Philippines University. Meanwhile, the Stags barged in the win column after three games with a 25-22, 25-20, 37-35, triumph over the Red Spikers. Reynald Honra got 19 points with 17 off kills and added 15 excellent receptions while John Mark Lim and Dominique Ramirez finished with 15 and 14 points, respectively, for SSC-R. San Beda slid to 1-1 card tied with victim Jose Rizal University.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 95: Racraquin displays maturity in latest San Beda conquest

Cesca Racraquin knows too well that any team can bite back if taken lightly. So when San Beda University’s intensity dipped midway in the third set of the Lady Red Spikers’ match against San Sebastian College, she had to pull her team together and set her teammates’ minds back at the task at hand.     “Nag-relax na parang akala namin panalo na eh,” said the Season 92 Rookie of the Year and now San Beda skipper. The Lady Spikers saw its early lead in the third set evaporate and even trailed the Lady Stags by one before waking up from sudden slump with a five-point spurt to regain control of the frame on their way to a 25-13, 25-9, 25-21, win Tuesday for back-to-back wins in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition. Racraquin needed to bark at her teammates in the closing stretch of the third set to bring San Beda back to order. “Nagagalit na ako sa loob. Pinapagalitan ko na sila kasi parang yung galaw nila parang ‘OK para matapos na lang’. Hindi na aggressive katulad noong first and second sets, yun ang nangyari kaya humabol sila at nalamangan na kami,” said Racraquin, who led all scorers with 19 points off 13 kills and six aces with three excellent receptions. Her teammates responded with a five-point barrage to turn a 17-18 deficit in the third to a 22-18 lead. “Pinagalitan ko na sila na, ‘Bakit ganyan ang galawan ninyo? Panalo na ba tayo? Hindi pa tayo panalo,’” Racraquin said. “Umayos naman sila. Parang nag-reel in sila na parang ‘Ok hindi pa panalo. Tapusin na lang muna namin hanggang 25 saka na lang kami magre-relax.’” Racraquin pushed San Beda to match point, 24-21, before Kim Manzano finished off the Lady Stags with a quick kill to close the one-hour, 27-minute encounter. The win pushed San Beda, which barely escaped Jose Rizal University in a five-set decision last Saturday, to a two-way tie with defending three-time champion Arellano University. The Lady Red Spikers’ last two games gave them a valuable lesson heading into their next assignments. “Kailangan lang namin ma-realize na hindi lang kami ang team na kayang gawin ang mga ‘to. Lahat kami nagti-training lahat ng mga kalaban namin nagti-training din araw-araw. Kailangan di lumaki ang ulo namin na, ‘Mas mataas naman ang skills natin, kaya natin.’ Di naman namin kayang idaan lang dun,” said Racraquin. “Kailangan naming i-mindset na, ‘O pareho tayo ng training. Makikita lang natin sa game ang difference kung sino ang mas gusto manalo. Kung sino ang mas willing na ibigay ang 100% niya para makuha ang panalo (siya ang mananalo),’” she added.     ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
