Tigers claw Green Spikers, inch closer to a semis berth

A long preparation against De La Salle paid off for University of Sto. Tomas as the Tigers outlasted the Green Spikers, 28-30, 25-23, 25-20, 16-25, 15-11, Wednesday to fortify their bid to clinch a semis seat in the 79th UAAP men’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. UST won its fifth of six five-set matches this season and climbed to a 6-6 win-loss card in a tie at third to fourth with idle Far Eastern University.  The win also formally eliminated Adamson from the semis race. The Tigers were able to dictate the outcome of the match after shattering an 8-all deadlock with three straight points. A crucial service error by DLSU’s Cris Dumago pushed UST at match point, 14-10, but the Tigers answered with a flubbed service on the other end to give the Green Spikers another chance. DLSU surrendered the game after a miscommunication in its reception that sealed the two-hour, 14-minute duel with the Green Spikers again bowing down to UST in a five-set battle. 'Medyo maayos-ayos ang execution namin doon sa prepared na set plays. We stuck to the game plan, talagang pilit na iniiwas sa main passer nila ang service namin,” said UST coach Odjie Mamon. “Although nagi-error kami, deserving naman na i-risk kumbaga hindi outright point per madali sa amin na makapuntos.” Mamon put his trust on his wards, battle-tested in five-set matches, in the tight deciding frame. “Sinabi ko na ilaro na lang nila kasi nasa kamay na nila (ang kapalaran nila),” he said. “Wala na kaming magagawa roon eh. Nag-respond naman sila saka pinag-aralan talaga namin ang La Salle like more than three weeks.” Manuel Medina scored 15 for the Tigers while Jerico Jose had 14. Jayvee Sumagaysay finished with 13 while skipper Arnold Bautista got 12 for the Espana-based squad, which will face Adamson on April 2 before closing the elims against FEU on April 8. With a 4-8 record, the Green Spikers need to sweep its remaining games against Ateneo and University of the East. But DLSU will have to pray that there will be a tie at 8-6 slate at fourth to fifth spot to force a playoff. Geraint Bacon and Dumago scored 17 each while Arjay Onia got 16 for the Taft-based squad.     ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Although there was a tarpaulin listing the prohibited things inside the city jail at the entrance, Rwea Barong, 32, of Sitio San Antonio, Barangay Cambaro, took the risk of bringing such items by sticking these on a cardboard using an adhesive tape and placing it inside her bag. Senior Jail Officer 2 Jonathan Medina, officer of the duty, apprehended Barong, a single mother. She was supposed to visit inmate Albert Sialana who was detained for carnapping and robbery. In an interview, Jail Officer 2 Blanche Aliño, community relations service officer of the Mandaue City Jail, said Barong used a cardboard, which was black on one side and white on the other, to cover the contraband. She said the visitor knew that what she was bringing were not allowed inside because after Barong taped the smart phone, charger, cord, bluetooth earphones and another set of earphones to the cardboard, she put it in the bag in such a way that the black surface would look like a stabilizer. “ i>Nagbutang mi og black tarpaulin sa gawas /i> (We put a black tarpaulin outside the jail) to remind everyone what are the contrabands, and number one of these are communication devices. i>Naa pud ang mga na-apprehend gi-post /i> (We also posted photos of those who had been apprehended for sneaking in contrabands),” Aliño said. In a separate interview, City Jail Warden Sup. Renante Rubio said Barong was turned over to Mandaue Police Station 5 where she was detained. She will be charged with violations of the City Ordinance 13-2014-907, which prohibits the sneaking, using and carrying of mobile phones and other electronic communication devices inside the jail. /div> /div> /div>.....»»

"I'm very ready to fight this Friday. With just three more days before the fight, I have enough time to adjust here," said Canoy. The 26-year-old Canoy had a long trip to South Africa a 10 and a half hour trip from Cebu to Dubai and then another nine and a half hours from Dubai to Cape Town. Canoy along with trainer Jingjing Tepora arrived in Cape Town last Monday. Canoy has had a very good training camp that included sparring sessions with fighter from the ALA Gym - the likes of interim International Boxing Federation (IBF) light flyweight champion Milan Melindo, hard-hitter Jeo Santisima, Virgel Vitor and Jess Rhey Waminal. After a unanimous decision loss to Hinata Maruta in Japan in 2015, Canoy has won two in a row against Jestoni Autida and Jetly Purisima. Canoy will have his hands full against hometown hero Magwaca, who hasn't tasted defeat in 19 bouts. Magwaca, however, is coming off a long layoff. He last fought in November of 2015, wherein he stopped Argentinean journeyman Raul Medina in two rounds. /div> /div> /div>.....»»

Tigers survive five sets thriller against Maroons

University of Sto. Tomas kept its Final Four hopes alive after surviving a five-set match against its first round tormentor University of the Philippines, 25-21, 25-21, 20-25, 18-25, 15-11, Saturday in the 79th UAAP men’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Tigers tied their victim at fourth to fifth spots with 5-6 win-loss record. It was a revenge victory for the Espana-based squad after the Maroons defeated them in five sets in the first round. “Panglimang fifth set na namin ito. Sabi nga nila character-building para sa amin ang five-setters,” said UST coach Odjie Mamon, whose team won four of its five five-set matches this season. Jerico Jose scored 19 attack points in his 22-point performance while Manuel Medina and Arnold Bautista finished with 15 and 13 markers, respectively, for the Tigers. UST weathered an error-filled match after giving away 42 points and staved off UP’s last ditched attempt to make a comeback. The Maroons saved three match points to close the gap 14-11 before Alfred Valbuena put too much power on his crosscourt attack that went long that capped the two-hour, 11-minute match. The Tigers will face De La Salle before taking on Adamson and Far Eastern University to close their elims campaign. “We have three remaining games, revenge yung isa dun at yung isa para ma-attain ‘yung goal,” said Mamon. “Within expectations pa rin naman and we're hoping to get the last three games.”     John Mark Millete scored 19 points while Valbuena and Gian San Pascual finished with 17 and 10 markers, respectively, for the Maroons. UP’s remaining matches are against semis-bound National University, FEU and Adamson.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Akong naka-chika ang direktor niini  nga si Direk Arlyn dela Cruz u gang tulo ka producers niini ug nasuta nga ng eksena sud sa usa ka trailer van diin cameraman lang ang naa sa sud uban nila ni Ping ug Baron. Way monitor si Direk Arlyn tungod kay bawal butasan ang van huningdan nga mao lang kini ang eksena diin way monitor ang director. Gi-rehearsed sad nila ang eksena sa pipila ka higayon so kampante na si Direk nga kon unsa ang ilang gi-rehearsed mao ang buhaton sa duha bisan og wa siya sa sud , apan ambot kon unsay nasud sa utok ni Baron nga kalit lang siyang mipasirit og ihi sa mismong nawong ni Ping.  Gumikan sa maong eskandalo gitsugi ni Direk Arlyn si Baron and then later on si Ping pero bayad kuno ang duha.  Gi-shooting ang “Bubog” nga halos ka-uupo pa lang ni President Duterte  sa puwesto basta aware ang production sa war on drugs ni Pangulong Duterte that time.  “Ipapakita rito kung ba­kit  mayroon tokhangan, bakit may tinotokhang pero hindi tokhang or extra judicial killing ang ginamit namin ditong term  kundi ‘summary execution’,” matod pa ni Direk Arlyn.  Yes, sa Davao ipi-premiere ang pelikulang Bubog sa SM Lanang ug  inaasahan ang mosuporta sa pamilyang Duterte although giklaro  ni Direk Arlyn ug  ang  tulo ka mga batang producer niini nga sila si   Andrea Cuya, Aya Sycon ug Atty.

Nakakatuwa ang mga batang producer  ilabi na si Atty. Jimena Sy tungod kay kaniadto pa gusto niyang mag-artista pero gipugngan siya sa iyang tatay mao nga nag-fucos siya sa  pag-eskuwela hangtod sa naging abogada. ug panahon na kuno  para  atubangan ni Atty. Jimena ang iyang childhood dream. Introducing si Raffy  Reyes dinhi isip  media man ug Atty. Jimena Sy  nga adunay nindot nga role.

Blue Eagles secure Final Four twice-to-beat

Fueled by a trio of yellow cards in the second set, three-peat seeking Ateneo de Manila vented its ire on University of Sto. Tomas, 22-25, 25-23, 25-13, 25-21, Saturday as the unbeaten Blue Eagles secured a semifinals twice-to-beat advantage in the 79th UAAP men’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Fying V Centre in San Juan. Three-time Most Valuable Player Marck Espejo unleashed his best game of the season with 27 points anchored on 23 attacks to tame the Tigers and deliver the Katipunan-based squad’s 10th straight win in as many outings and 24th in a row since last season. Ateneo started out flat but got its game going with a little push from first referee Oliver Mora. With the game tied at 7 in the second set, Mora flagged head coach Oliver Almadro, skipper Karl Baysa and setter Ish Polvorosa with yellow cards for continuous complaining to an attack error called on the Blue Eagles. Ateneo contested the error called on Baysa, saying that it was a checked ball. Almadro was fuming mad on the sidelines to eard a yellow card and his wards surprised with the call. The incident switched the Blue Eagles in killer mode as Ateneo escaped a tight second set and dominated the next two frames to send the Tigers to their sixth loss in 10 games. Manuel Medina led UST with 13 points while Jerico Jose had 11.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

Tigers send Red Warriors packing, end losing skid

University of Sto. Tomas snapped a three-game skid with a 25-21, 22-25 25-21, 25-18 win over the University of the East Red Warriors in the 79th UAAP men’s volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan. Manuel Medina led three other players in double figures that powered the Espana-based squad to a 4-5 win-loss record tied with University of the Philippines. Medina smashed 11 attacks for 13 points while Arnold Bautista, Tyrone Carodan and Jerico Jose scored 10 points each for the Tigers. The Red Warriors dropped its eighth game in nine outings to formally bid its Final Four hopes goodbye. Edward Camposano was the only UE player in double-digit scoring with 18 points anchored on 14 spikes while Alven Aljas finished with eight in two sets for the Red Warriors, who failed to make a follow up in their five-set win over Adamson that arrested their 35-game losing slump.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles    .....»»

Bulldogs grab sixth win in a row

National University needed a little time to heat up before zooming to its sixth straight win. The Bulldogs shrugged off a slow start Saturday to defeat the University of Sto. Tigers, 21-25, 25-16, 25-17, 25-18, and keep its tight hold of the second spot in the 79th UAAP men’ volleyball tournament at the Big Dome. NU improved to 7-1 win-loss record behind the unbeaten back-to-back champions Ateneo de Manila but head coach Dante Alinsunurin rued the slow start of his wards.   “Matagal na naming ginagamot yan. Every time na lang na may game kami para kaming diesel na kailangan munang mag-init bago maglaro ng mga players ko,” said Alinsunurin, whose team beat UST in the first round in straight sets last March 1. “Naga-adjust naman kami para sa next game namin maging mas maganda ang simula namin.” Bryan Bagunas showed the way for the Bulldogs with 23 points – all but one coming off attacks – while adding nine excellent receptions. Fauzi Ismail scored 15 points while Kim Malabunga and Francis Saura finished with nine markers each for NU, which unleashed 56 attacks anchored on Kim Dayandante’s 44 excellent sets. The Espana-based squad absorbed its third straight loss to fall back to 3-5 mark. Jerico Jose and Manuel Medina had 12 points each while Arnold Bautista got 10 for UST.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles             .....»»
