In the local volleyball league, Shakey’s V-League is one of the tournaments that I follow. Season 10 Open Conference has reached the semifinal round and four teams stayed alive.Cagayan Valley, Smart Maynilad, Philippine Army and the Philippine Air Force will battle in three (3) matches. Cagayan Valley versus Philippine Air Force, Smart Maynilad versus Philippine Army. Earlier this afternoon, Cagayan Valley won against the Philippine Air Force in 4 sets, (3-1), 17-25, 30-28, 25-19, 25-9.
In the opening set, the Airwomen started with a very impressive performance above the net. They upset the Cagayan spikers with their massive blocks and powerful attacks. They easily finished the first set, 17-25.
During the second set, both teams were aggressive in their offense and defense. With good long rallies and see saw of scores, elicited the crowd to be frenzy inside the San Juan arena. But the Cagayan spikers, found the momentum and sealed the set, 30-28.
The 3rd set favored the Cagayan ladies with a higher percentage in terms of attacks and receptions. They easily subdued the Airforce, 25-19.
I was hoping that the 4th set would be the chance of the Airwomen to bounce back but they didn’t perform well. They were trounced by the Cagayan ladies due to reception errors. The match ended with a cross-court hit by Aiza Maizo, 25-9.
