UAAP 81 Football: UST demolishes DLSU on opening day

Season 80 runners up University of Santo Tomas wasted no time in getting on the board, as the Growling Tigers demolished De La Salle University, 3-1 on opening day of the UAAP Season 81 Men's Football Tournament, Sunday afternoon at the FEU-FERN Football Field in Diliman, Quezon City.  Armed with 13 rookies, the Green Archers were looking to make a statement early in the season, and early in the match, it looked like they were primed for a big win after one of those new faces, John Rey Lagura, connected on his first UAAP goal to put DLSU ahead, 1-0 in the 14th minute.  The Green Archer advantage didn't last too long, as Conrad Dimacali responded in the 17th minute to help the Growling Tigers pull even  UST moved into the driver's seat heading into the midgame break, thanks to a 36th minute conversion from Juan Villanueva to make it 2-1.  Action picked up in the second half, as De La Salle looked to rally back, but instead it was UST who found the back of the net once again, with rookie Glen Ramos also hitting his first UAAP goal to put the Growling Tigers ahead, 3-1.  DLSU attempted once last push, but yielded no results, as UST coasted to a big opening day victory.  "Every tournament, especially sa UAAP, mas maganda talaga na makakuha ka kaagad ng three points, pero nag-start kami kanina na masiyadong mababa yung laro namin, medyo yung fitness namin, hindi kami makahawak ng bola," explained UST head coach Marjo Allado after the match. "La Salle is very dangerous in transitions, and buti na lang, yung dalawang free kicks namin, na-convert namin kanina."  "So far, it's a good result for the UST Men's Team sa opening game," Allado added.  While it was a big win, Allado isn't completely happy with the result, noting that he felt his boys were a bit off.  "Naka-score kami ng three goals, pero my concern is yung laro namin kanina, this is not how we play eh. Siguro first game, parang naninibago lang yung mga players, especially yung ibang rookies."  UST opens the season with a win and three points. .....»»

UAAP Season 81: Naga-adjust pa lang kami -- Bagunas

National University top hitter Bryan Bagunas admitted that the Bulldogs are still adjusting with the absence of starting setter Kim Dayandante.    The Bulldogs’ struggles were just too obvious after suffering a shocking 12-25, 18-25, 17-25, loss at the hands of Far Eastern University Saturday in the UAAP Season 81 men’s volleyball tournament at the FilOiul Flying V Centre in San Juan. Bagunas was the only NU player in double digits with 15 points on a 14-of-37 spiking clip.     “Siguro sa ngayon naga-adjust pa lang kami kasi late na nasabi na di makakapaglaro si Kim eh. Mga three days before this game saka sinabi na di makakapaglaro si Kim so nandun ang adjustment namin ngayon,” said Bagunas. Dayandante was dropped from the roster after the eligibility screening. Rookie Joshua Retamar got a baptism of fire as starter, tallying 18 excellent sets in 82 attempts. “Sa set play naga-adjust pa kami kasi sa mga laro namin sa labas ang ginagamit namin si Kim Dayandante nga so wala pa yung jell namin sa (bagong) setter namin,” Bagunas added. Another problem that plagued the ASEAN University Games gold medalists is the number of errors they committed. NU threw 32 points off their miscues. “Isa pa rin ‘yun ang errors na ‘di namin na-control na naman. Nandoon na naman ‘yung sakit namin bumabalik,” Bagunas said. “Siguro kailangan pa naming ma-maintan ‘yung dati na nali-lessen namin ang error namin.” Still, the Bulldogs remained positive despite the loss. “Sabi naman nila coach Dante (Alinsunurin) start pa lang ito hanggang May pa ito,” said Bagunas. “’Di pa rito natatapos ang season so umpisahan uli namin sa training. Talagang pupukpukin na namin ang jell namin para sa next game.” NU will face University of the East next week.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UAAP Season 81: Lady Maroons survive opening day scare

University of the Philippines weathered University of the East’s upset scare with a hard-earned, 25-12, 22-25, 23-25, 25-19, 15-12, opening day win Saturday in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.   The veteran duo of Isa Molde and Tots Carlos delivered the goods for the Lady Maroons, who are considered as one of the top contenders after winning two pre-season titles, in the fifth set to silence the feisty Lady Warriors.   "They are very good five sets. We played as a team that is why we we're able to get the last two sets. As I said before nothing comes easy. We win but we struggle some times," said UP head coach Godfrey Okumu. "The sets we won we won with ease but the ones we lost, we lost terribly. I hope we put this behind us and move forward to our next game."     Molde posted 23 points off 19 kills, two aces and two kill blocks to pace the Dilima-based squad. The Season 78 rookie of the year added 10 excellent receptions for the Lady Maroons.  Carlos chipped in 17 markers icluding 15 off spikes while Justine Dorog added 12 points for UP, which landed 61 spikes behind setter Ayel Estranero's 44 excellent sets. The Lady Maroons recovered from a 1-2 match deficit to force a deciding frame but found the Lady Warriors a tough nut to crack. UP went up 13-9 before  UE answered with straight points. Dorog put the Lady Maroons at match point , Judith Abil saved a point for the Lady Warriors before Jessma Ramos sealed the win for UP with a strong swipe off UE's block.        The Lady Maroons survived a scare in the fourth set, staving off the Lady Warriors’ charge from a nine-point deficit, 1-10. UE chopped its deficit to 14-16 behind Judith Abil and Me-Anne Mendrez’s heroics but UP answered with a scorching rally to force a deciding frame.       Judith Abil led the Lady Warriors’ fightback in the third set after trailing, 13-19. The graduating hitter Abil tied the frame at 21. Both squads traded points in the next plays before Mariella Gabarda pushed UE at set point. The Lady Warriors stole the frame after Marist Layug’s soft shot went out.     Abil got 20 points and 21 excellent receptions while Mendrez had eight markers for UE. Prized libero Kath Arado tallied 32 digs and 18 receives in a lost cause.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

UAAP 81: Different UE team gives favored UP worthy challenge

Yep, this is a different UE Lady Warriors team. As if it wasn’t obvious enough, the Lady Warriors made sure to remind everyone that they’re no longer pushovers, pushing preseason favorite UP to five full sets Saturday at the San Juan Arena to open the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament. Not only did UE push the Lady Maroons to the limit, the Lady Warriors also actually led the game two sets to one. UE’s breakthough win wouldn’t come Saturday though as the Lady Maroons, winners of two preseason champions and were clearly the favorites entering the game, narrowly escaped an upset in five. “Malaking bagay samin yun [five sets], nakaka-taba ng puso,” libero Kat Arado said. “Kasi yun nga, marami ako nakikita sa social media na straight sets kami, never ko nakita na lalaban ang UE. So malaking bagay to. Sayang man but at the same time, confident pa rin kami,” she added. After going through seasons of winless campaigns, the Lady Warriors have come out as a veteran, mature group. However, execution late in sets remain a weak spot for UE and the Lady Warriors are aware that that’s something they need to polish moving forward. “Kinapos talaga kami sa dulo,” Arado said. “Labanan ng maturity talaga, nandoon na yung maturity namin kasi nagku-kulang kami na kumbaga sa UP, ang smooth ng galaw nila. Yun yung trabahuhin namin, yung buo talaga [late in games],” she added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UP ended a 36-year title drought in any major tournament after the Lady Maroons ruled the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference. The Diliman-based squad followed it up with its conquest in the Philippine Superliga Collegiate Grand Slam that also earned them an all-expense paid training camp in Thailand. Expectations are high for the Lady Maroons especially with an intact core. Top hitters Tots Carlos and Isa Molde are back with other holdovers in Ayel Estranero, Marist Layug, Marian Buitre and Justine Dorog. But UP is sure to face a tough resistance from an inspired Lady Warriors side. UE bagged third place in the PSL Collegiate Grand Slam, its first tournament podium finish in years. The Lady Warriors will also parade an intact core led by prized libero Kath Arado, Me-Anne Mendrez, Judith Abil, Roselle Baliton, setter Lai Bendong and Seth Rodriguez.           --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
