GUEST player Nerissa Benting exploded for 21 hits while skipper Angela Benting punched in 13 points to derail San Sebastian’s attempt for a quarterfinals slot Thursday night in the 7th Shakey’s V-League second conference at the Arena in San Juan.
Adamson University controlled the deciding fifth set to enlist a 16-25, 26-24, 25-23, 16-25, and 15-10 victory over San Sebastian, which took almost two hours to settle.
The Lady Falcons improved with 3-2 (win-loss) card joining Lyceum of the Philippines University and Far Eastern University.
The Lady Stags, however, still remained on top with a 4-1 record.
Thai import Jeng Bualee delivered a monster performance for coach Roger Gorayeb with 26 points while guest player Suzanne Reyes chipped in 21 hits for the losing cause.
In the other contests, Far Eastern University and Lyceum score a pair of straight set victories over the league’s two newcomers to move up to joint third.
The Lady Tams clipped the National U Lady Bulldogs to an easy 25-11, 25-19, 25-14 romp while the Lady Pirates survived a stubborn Perpetual Help side to hack out a 26-24, 25-16, 25-21 win in the first game.
The Tams unloaded 39 kills against the Lady Bulldogs’ measly 16-attack output with Rachelle Anne Daquis and Monique Tiangco leading the charge with 11 and 10 hits, respectively.
The Altas, on the other hand, stunned their fancied rivals with 11 blocks, more than doubling Lyceum’s five-block output, with guest player Nica Guliman and Sandra delos Santos coming up with five and four, respectively. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
