It was a do or die match for both teams! Whoever wins this game will face Ateneo Lady Eagles in the Finals next week!
Game 1 was taken by the Adamson Lady Falcons while Game 2 was grabbed by the National U Lady Bulldogs!
Since it was the last and final game for both squads, they really prepared with their offense and defense schemes!
At first, the NU Lady Bulldogs started with a bang in the first set, Dindin Santiago and Mina Aganon enjoyed with their running and open hits respectively.
But the Adamson Lady Falcons have made their run to tie the Bulldogs. Shiela Pineda and Pau Soriano’s cross court and middle hits are enough to tie at 23 then 24 all until the Adamson ended it at 26-24.
The Lady Bulldogs were still consistent in the second set with their offense and defense. They easily ended the set, 20-25. Dindin Santiago and Aiko Urdas combined their full attacks above the net.
In the third set, the Lady Falcons were trying to outsmart the Bulldogs but the superb blocks by Dindin and Jaja Santiago (the Santiago sisters) helped them to take the 3rd set easiy, 15-25.
Fourth set, the last set for the Falcons to force a decider. Angela Benting exerted much effort to stay close with the Bulldogs. And much surprise by Pau Soriano’s middle attacks helped them to tie the set at 21. The Bulldogs were kinda bothered and thought it would go for a 5th set. But Myla Pablo played smartly, combining her cross court and down the line hits ended the match at 22-25.
With this win, (3-1) 24-26, 25-20, 25-15, 25-22, the LADY BULLDOGS advanced into the Finals to play against the defending champ Ateneo Lady Eagles.
Myla Pablo (#11) was chosen “Player of the Game” with 20 points, 5 blocks.
