Who would have thought it was a 5-setter game between the Lady Falcons of Adamson University and Lady Tigresses of the University of Sto. Tomas?
Yes, it was! A very exciting match between these two strong teams of the UAAP Season 75.
The Tigresses who are known with their powerful attacks and blocks and the Lady Falcons who are known with their strong defense and smart play attacks clashed in a 5-setter game last Wednesday.
It was very evident that two of the best middle attackers from both teams really played well. I am referring to Maika Ortiz of UST and Pau Soriano of ADU. Pau scored 25 points for her team while Maika loaded 15 kills. Maika is popularly known for her running spikes and Pau is known for her quick hits.
Mayette Zapanta really stepped from the Lady Falcons with her superb cross-court hits and down the line attacks. Go girl!
But the captain of the Lady Tigresses, Judy Caballejo,as well as Pam Lastimosa, did not let the Falcons soar high. With her strong down the line attacks and massive blocks, she brought the team in a winning moment together with Carmela Tunay as she finally sealed the 5th set. Here are the scores: 25-18, 22-25, 25-21, 18-25, 15-13.
Wow… nice game … girls! Season 75 is really a tough season for all teams. It was the second 5-setter game loss for the Falcons after with the Lady Eagles last Sunday.
