NCAA Season 94: Lady Chiefs complete three-peat

Three-peat. Arellano University extended its reign to three straight years after the Lady Chiefs completed a dramatic best-of-three series comeback with a 22-25, 25-15, 25-18, 25-18, win over University of Perpetual Help Tuesday in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball Finals decider at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Chiefs recovered from an 11-13 deficit in the fourth set with a blistering rally to claim their fourth title in five years and third in a row against the last team to mark a three-peat five seasons ago.          Arellano U squandered an 8-3 lead in the fourth set but regrouped just in time to score 11 straight points for a 22-13 lead over the shocked Lady Altas. Perpetual tried to fight back but an overcooked serve by Jenny Gaviola ended the Lady Altas’ failed mission to bring the title back to Las Pinas. "Kung titingnan natin yung Perpetual talagang mataas ang respeto ko sa kanila. Talagang sinukat nila kami, pinilit nilang ilabas ang dapat naming ilabas eh so nagpapasalamat kami doon. 'Yun talo namin sa kanila noong Game 1 malaking bagay talaga 'yun," said Arellano U head coach Obet Javier. "Dahil doon natuto kaming bumangon.Na-realize namin ang dapat naming gawin."     The Lady Chiefs also spoiled Perpetual's attempt of a triple crown after its men's and juniors teams ruled their respective divisions.  Back-to-back Finals Most Valuable Player Regine Arocha finished with game-high 16 points including five aces while adding 11 excellent receptions for Arellano U. Princess Bello got 10 markers while Season MVP Necole Ebuen and Carla Donato delivered 11 points each for the Lady Chiefs, who received 36 points off Perpetual's errors.     Perpetual drew first blood two weeks ago in a shocking 21-25, 25-17, 25-21, 25-20, win before Arellano U forced a decider with a 23-25, 25-9, 25-18, 22-25, 15-12, victory in Game 2.  The Lady Chiefs started out firing on all cylinders and built a 14-7 lead in the opening frame. Arellano U held a 20-17 lead heading into the closing stretch of the first set only to see the determined Lady Altas make six unanswered points to take the driver’s seat, 23-20. An error by Shyra Umandal stopped Perpetual’s rally before Cindy Imbo put the Lady Altas at set point. Arellano U saved a set point before Gaviola sealed the frame.  The Lady Chiefs dominated the second and third sets.  Graduating hitter Cindy Imbo posted 12 points - all from kills - and added 13 digs in her swan song while Umandal and Gaviola scored 10 markers eac.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

NCAA Season 94: Para kay coach Nes –- Javier

Arellano University head coach Obet Javier was teary-eyed as he mentioned the name of the late legendary volleyball mentor Nes Pamilar during the Lady Chiefs post-game interview moments after completing a grand slam in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball competition.   “Itong game na ito kung mapapansin natin one month ni Coach Nes ngayon eh,” said Javier, whose squad beat University of Perpetual Help, 22-25, 25-15, 25-18, 25-18, Tuesday in the decider of the best-of-three Finals series at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.  “Itong game na ito inaalay ko talaga sa kanya.” The multi-titled Pamilar died due to heart failure exactly a month ago. Javier worked as one of Pamilar’s most trusted deputies with his club teams Power Smashers and Tacloban in the Premier Volleyball League. Arellano U's title conquests have been a bittersweet experience for Javier. The Legarda-based squad reclaimed the crown it lost in 2016 in Season 92 just two weeks after he lost his wife, Amy Marie, to cancer while the Lady Chiefs dedicated their second straight title last year to another legandary coach Kid Santos, father of Javier's lieutenant  Mike, who died November 2017 from cardiac arrest.      The Lady Chiefs won their fourth crown in five years and became the third winningest team in the league behind San Sebastian College (23) and Letran (8). Arellano U surpassed Perpetual, which earned three titles from a three-peat feat it did from Seasons 87 to 89.        The Lady Chief have cemented their dynastic rule in the NCAA but head coach Javier is not resting on their laurels. “Sinasabi nyo nga na dynasty, pilit naming panghahawakan kasi minsan lang dumating sa isang team ‘yan eh,” he said. “Hangga’t maari di namin dapat pakawalan.” “Continue pa rin kami, hindi porke’t nag-three-peat kami hihinto kami,” Javier said. “Patuloy kaming mag-aaral, magi-improve dapat para sa school sa susunod na taon.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Chiefs begin three-peat bid

Well-rested reigning champion Arellano University marches into battle Friday to begin its three-peat bid against a very hungry University of Perpetual Help side in Game 1 of the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball Finals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Explosive action of the best-of-three series opener will roll at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. The Lady Chiefs advanced to their third straight championship appearance after making quick work of last year’s runner-up San Beda University last January 22 in the Final Four. Arellano U will try to overcome the challenge of the Lady Altas, who are making their first Finals stint since winning it all back in Season 89, to cement their dynasty and join San Sebastian College, Perpetual and Letran in the elite grand slam club.  “Kailangan talaga naming magtrabaho. Kailangan talagang mag-focus ng team ko at ibigay na nila ang 100 percent nila,” said Arellano U head coach Obet Javier, who is looking to steer his squad to its fourth title in five years.   Javier will pin his hopes on his top hitters in Necole Ebuen and veteran Regine Arocha with Carla Donato, Alyana San Gregorio, Princess Bello and seasoned setter Rhea Ramirez providing support. However, the Lady Chiefs, who defeated Perpetual in the elims, are sure to face stiff resistance from the Lady Altas. Perpetual is coming into the series brimming with confidence after a remarkable Final Four series where the no. 4 seed Lady Altas overcame College of St. Benilde’s twice-to-beat advantage. Behind the personal and season-best 32 points of Cindy Imbo, the Lady Altas completed their upset of top seed Lady Blazers in a thrilling five-set encounter. “Hindi pa tapos, umabot na kami ng Finals. Mas lalo naming kakapitan, mas lalo naming titibayan kasi Finals na 'yun eh,” Perpetual coach Macky Carino, who steered CSB to its breakthrough title in Season 91 before transferring last year. “Ang hirap ng pinagdaanan namin. Kami praktisado kami, 'yung kalaban namin nagpahinga ng matagal so advantage on our side.” Aside from Imbo, the Lady Altas will also lean on Jhona Rosal, Jenny Gaviola, Jowie Albert Versoza, setter Necelle Gual, Bianca Tripoli and Shyra Umandal. Game 2 of the series is on Februray 8 while Game 3, if needed, is on February 12.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Spain not immune to problems in VAR s debut season

By Tales Azzoni, Associated Press MADRID (AP) — Real Madrid complained about it. Barcelona defended it. Fans are struggling to understand it. Video review is not escaping controversy in its first season in Spain. As in other countries, the implementation of VAR hasn't been smooth in the Spanish league, with confusion and criticism coming along with the process. The system's debut had not prompted major discussions early on, but two controversial decisions involving powerhouses Real Madrid and Barcelona were enough to make it a hot topic. First it was a non-call of a penalty on Real Madrid forward Vinicius Junior in the team's 2-0 home loss to Real Sociedad in the beginning of the month. Then came the confirmation of a goal by striker Luis Suarez in Barcelona's 3-1 win over Leganes on Sunday. Madrid felt the images clearly showed a foul on Vinicius Junior, while Leganes was sure the review would mean a foul by Suarez on its goalkeeper before the goal. But both decisions stood, prompting complaints by the clubs and confusion among fans and analysts. "It's a tool we welcomed with excitement," Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari said Wednesday. "We want it to be used correctly. The less people talk about it, the better it is. This is the first year, it will be improved. What is important is that we all get used to it." The Spanish federation analyzed the use of the VAR in the first half of the season and concluded it was a positive debut although more than 120 mistakes were not corrected by the system, including seven penalty calls. It said the VAR intervened in 30 goal situations, confirming half of them. The number of overall mistakes was significantly reduced, officials said. The biggest complaint by fans and clubs has been the lack of criteria by the officiating crews when using — or not using — the video review. Audio from the conversation between the officials during the Madrid game was made public, with the VAR official telling the referee that "everything was OK" on the play involving Vinicius Junior, when it looked like he had his leg touched by the goalkeeper inside the area. Fans didn't seem satisfied with what they heard, and they have been booing loudly every time the announcer at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium mentions information about the VAR before games. "When a top team is affected, the impact is greater," Spanish league president Javier Tebas told Spanish media. "We are happy with how things are going so far." There had been plenty of controversy with video review before the decisions involving Real Madrid and Barcelona. Valladolid owner Ronaldo, the former Brazil great, took to Twitter to talk about VAR after his team's Copa del Rey elimination against Getafe, when a late offside call hurt his team. "The VAR is here to correct mistakes, but it won't eliminate all of them," he posted. Levante had already issued a statement asking for an explanation about the VAR criteria after a penalty was awarded against the team in a loss against Atletico Madrid. Last year, Atletico also released a statement criticizing how the video review was being used. Atletico felt a hand ball by a Real Madrid player was not called in its match against the city rival, despite images clearly showing it. Spain was one of the late adopters of VAR, although the Premier League will only start using it next season. Italy was one of the countries which struggled the most with video review after it started using it last season, although things have improved significantly since then. "Referees make mistakes and the VAR is not perfect," said Carlos Velasco Carballo, head of the referee's technical committee in Spain. "But the numbers so far have shown that we are improving. We have to be proud of it.".....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Chiefs now a win away from an outright Finals berth

Defending two-time champion Arellano University started out flat and went through some scary moments in the fourth set against a very determined University of Perpetual Help before emerging still unscathed with an 18-25, 25-16, 25-19, 26-24, escape Thursday in the NCAA  Season 94 women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Chiefs claimed their eighth straight win in as many outings to move within a victory away from advancing to the Finals outright. “’Yun talaga yung plano namin this season, talagang kumbaga mas maganda na ‘yung nakatuntong ka na sa Finals at mag-aabang ka na lang kung sino ang makakalaban mo,” said Arellano U coach Obet Javier, whose squad can automatically advance in the best-of-three championship with a win against San Beda University on Tuesday in their rematch of last year’s Finals. The Lady Chiefs' win also gave idle College of St. Benilde (6-1) a free ride into the semifinals. Last season’s rookie of the year Necole Ebuen shined the brightest for Arellano U with 16 points coming off 12 attacks and four kill blocks while Regine Arocha played an all-around game with 11 points, 16 digs and nine excellent receptions. Sarah Verutiao tallied 20 excellent sets to help the Lady Chiefs blast 40 attacks. Arellano U recovered from a set down to take the next two frames but faced a tough challenge from the Lady Altas in the fourth set. The Lady Chiefs squandered a 22-18 lead in the four set as they allowed Perpetual to crawl its way back into the game with a 5-1 rally to tie the frame at 23. Princess Bello, who had nine points, scored on an off the block hit but Jhona Rosal saved a match point for the Lady Altas with a kill block. Rosal committed an error on the next play and Cindy Imbo sent her attack straight to the net in Perpetual’s last of 40 miscues. The Lady Altas dropped to 4-3 mark tied with San Sebastian College. Imbo was the only Perpetual player in double figures with 13. Jenny Gaviola had nine while Jowie Albert Versoza finished with seven for the Lady Altas, who are now in a must-win situation in their last two assignments against SSC-R and Jose Rizal University to keep their semifinals hopes alive. Meanwhile, the Altas came back from a set down to beat the Chiefs, 19-25, 25-14, 25-20, 27-25, and clinch the first Final Four berth in  a rematch of last year's Finals.  Perpetual won its seventh straight win in as many outings to move within two victories away from an outright championship berth. Ronniel Rosales scored 19 points while Season 93 Rookie/Most Valuable Player Joebert Almodiel got 16 markers and 28 excellent receptions to pace the Altas, who sent Arellano U down to 6-2 slate.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Gusto naming makasiguro na sa Finals -- Lady Chiefs coach Javier

Only two teams stand in the way of defending two-time champion Arellano University's drive to claim an outright Finals berth in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball competition. On Thursday, the unbeaten Lady Chiefs will take on the first of their last two elimination round assignments in University of Perpetual Help at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Game time is at 2:00 p.m. and will air via livestream. Arellano U sports a 7-0 win-loss record and are two wins away from securing the first best-of-three championship berth.  "Pipilitin namin. Siyempre, gusto naming makasiguro na, yun sa Finals nga. Pipilitin naming manalo sa dalawang games na natitira,” said head coach Obet Javier, whose squad will close the elims against San Beda University in a rematch of last year’s Finals on Tuesday. “Kailangan sa game namin sa Perpetual, manalo kami, at lalong-lalo na 'yung sa San Beda. Pipilitin namin 'yung (elims) sweep na makamit," added Javier. The Lady Chiefs crushed Emilio Aguinaldo College, 25-19, 25-11, 25-8, the last time out to continue their winning romp. But it won’t be an easy match this time as Arellano U will contend against a team which is making its final push to clinch one of the last two semifinals berths. The Lady Altas are riding on the crest of their three-game winning streak and are carrying a 4-2 slate. Arellano U and San Beda University (7-1) occupied the first two Final Four seats. In case the Lady Chiefs, who will face San Beda on Tuesday, complete an elimination round sweep, Arellano will automatically advance in the Finals while the next three teams will battle in a knockout stepladder semis. Meanwhile, eliminated teams Letran (1-6) and Mapua (1-6) battle at 12:00 noon.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Asian Cup: Spirited Azkals fall short to South Korea in opener

The Philippine Azkals put up a spirited effort but ultimately fell to South Korea, 1-0, in their 2019 AFC Asian Cup Opener at the Al-Maktoum Stadium in Dubai, Monday evening, Manila time.  South Korea controlled the pace of the match in the first half, dominating ball possession by a large margin, but the Filipino side displayed tremendous defense, keeping the scorelines at 0-0 stalemate by the end of the first 45 minutes.  The Azkals did have their chances late in the first half, highlighted by a Daisuke Sato cross that found its way to Javier Patiño for the Filipinos' best attempt of the first frame.  The Filipinos continued to try and push the pace as the second half began, with Patiño once again coming within inches of converting for the Azkals.  The South Koreans finally breached the Azkals defense in the 67th minute however, with Hwang Uijo firing a shot from just in side the box and sending it into the top left corner for the conversion.  The tournament favorites, who finished as runners-up in the 2015 edition of the Asian Cup, dominated possession once again as they kept the Azkals at bay for their first three points of the tournament.  The Azkals meanwhile, take a close loss in their first-ever Asian Cup fixture, but can take solace in the fact that they were able to push the fourth-ranked nation in Asia to the limit and held them to just a single goal.  The Pinoy side will hope to keep the same confidence and momentum as they meet China PR next on Friday, January 11th at the Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. .....»»

NCAA Season 94 volleyball: Lady Chiefs clinch first semis seat

Defending champion Arellano University punched the first Final Four ticket after a quick work of winless Emilio Aguinaldo College, 25-19, 25-11, 25-8, Monday in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. It took the Lady Chiefs only 63 minutes to notch their seventh win in as many outings to keep their tight hold of the lead and more importantly secure a spot in the semifinals. Despite coming off a long holiday break, Arellano U showed no signs of rust. Head coach Obet Javier had a chance to experiment with his rotation, giving all of his wards playing time.  "Ni-remind ko lang yung mga bata kung ano yung target namin para sa game na ito. Siyempre, gusto naming itaas yung morale namin lalo," said Javier, whose squad advanced in their seventh straight semifinals apperance. Regine Arocha showed the kind of form expected from her in the Lady Chiefs final push in the elimination round as the hitter unleashed 14 points built on nine spikes, four aces and a kill block. Arocha, who struggled early in the season, added 11 digs. Last year’s rookie of the year Necole Ebuen got nine markers while Princess Bello finished with seven for Arellano U, who can march outright in the best-of-three Finals with wins over its last two games against University of Perpetual Help on Thursday and San Beda University on Tuesday. The Lady Chiefs handed the Lady Generals their eighth consecutive defeat. Jaylene Lumbo scored nine points for EAC, which will close the season on Friday against Lyceum of the Philippines University. Meanwhile, Arellano U secured at least a playoff for a Final Four spot in the men’s division after defeating EAC in five sets, 25-13, 25-18, 27-29, 16-25, 16-14, for a 6-1 slate at solo second spot. Christian Dela Paz led the Chiefs with 16 points while Kim Vincent Tan and Jesrael Liberato got 14 and 13 markers, respectively. Joshua Mina and Joshua Ramilo blasted 23 and 22 points, respectively, in a lost cause for the Generals, who fell to 5-3 card. In the juniors division, the Brigadiers upset the Braves, 25-14, 25-20, 25-19, to improve to 3-5 card. Arellano U slid to 4-3 slate.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
