FEU posts 2nd straight win at expense of UE

Far Eastern University earned its first string of back-to-back games after brushing off winless University of the East, 25-20, 25-17, 24-26, 25-22, in the UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball tournament Saturday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Tamaraws improved to 3-2 and took a share of third place with Ateneo while the Lady Warriors, who played their first match without beleaguered former head coach Francis Vicente, dropped to 0-6. Celine Domingo, who is a former Lady Warrior, got going in the clutch for FEU when she first gave the Lady Tamaraws a 23-19 lead after a block on Mary Ann Mendrez. She then followed it up with an off-balanced kill that gave the Lady...Keep on reading: FEU posts 2nd straight win at expense of UE.....»»

FEU didn’t play its best in four-set win over UE, says coach

Far Eastern University head coach George Pascua said that his players did show a little bit of mercy when they beat University of the East in four sets in the UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball tournament. It might have been that middle blocker Celine Domingo used to don the red of the Lady Warriors, but skipper Bernadeth Pons echoed her mentor's words. Pons admitted what they displayed in their victory over UE, 25-20, 25-17, 24-26, 25-22, wasn't their best and they vow to do better in the future games. "We all know that the way we played wasn't in the level on what we are capable of," said Pons in Filipino Saturday at Filoil Flying V Centre. "We weren't at one hundred percen...Keep on reading: FEU didn’t play its best in four-set win over UE, says coach.....»»

UAAP VOLLEYBALL: Pons cherishes first opening day win

Bernadeth Pons bore witness to Far Eastern University’s season-opening woes. Now on her last playing year with the Lady Tamaraws, the graduating open hitter made sure that the drought would end Sunday.     Pons provided an all-around effort to will the Morayta-based squad to a thrilling 19-25, 25-21, 18-25, 25-20, 15-9, victory over Ateneo de Manila University in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the MOA Arena.       The star spiker delivered down the stretch, scoring 14 points with 12 off attacks while playing a vital role on FEU’s floor defense with 16 excellent receptions and 13 digs.  The victory snapped the five-year, opening day win drought of the Lady Tams. FEU’s last first game win was against University of the East back in Season 74. “Sobrang happy. Napag-usapan din namin noong last set na in my past four years sa UAAP never pa kaming nanalo ng first game sa UAAP, ito pa lang ang first time sa pang fifth year ko na,” said Pons. But the chance of clinching a debut match win looked bleak when FEU went behind, 1-2, in the match. Working with Toni Rose Basas and Celine Domingo, Pons led the Lady Tams' blazing run in the fourth set to force a deciding frame. FEU went into trouble early in the fifth frame, 1-6, before shocking the stunned Lady Eagles with a blistering rally. Pons pounded the down the line kills that pushed the Lady Tams at match point, 14-9.           “So napag-usapan namin na hopefully mangyari siya (opening day win) ngayon, ayun nangyari naman,” she said. “A win is a win pa rin although madami pa rin kaming sobrang daming mga errors and lapses pero good thing naman is naka-recover kami,” Pons added. “Medyo slow start, I don’t know, good thing lang naka-recover.” As an added bonus, the win ended FEU's losing slump to Ateneo since the second round of Season 75.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
