But the story has changed in the tough 3rd set  when the score was tied at 22 all. But the persistent La Salle went ahead to close the set, 22-25. Same story happened in the 4th set, the Greens were able to go ahead the Blue Eagles, 22-25. So, deciding set came and it was very evident that the Lady Spikers were still in control of the game. Massive blocks and powerful attacks  made the Lady Eagles quit flying up high. The match ended, 15-6. Michelle Gumabao (#7) was the Player of the Game.
