JAJA, AGEO MEDICS SECURE SOLO FIFTH PLACE AFTER TROUNCING KUROBE AQUAFAIRIES
Jaja Santiago led Ageo Medics with 10 points in a 25-14, 26-24, 25-12 victory against Kurobe on Sunday in the Japan V. League at the Saiden Chemical Arena.
Ageo Medics secured the solo fifth place with a 10-6 win-loss record after defeating AquaFairies following a four-set stint on Saturday.
The Saitama club proved their domination as Mami Uchiseto delivered 17 points built on 13 attacks, three aces, and a block, combined with Yuka Sato’s 15 markers and Brazilian import Lorenne Teixeira’s eight points.
The Philippine import Jaja fired up and added 10 points to the team’s victory where she landed successful 6 out of 10 attacks and shut off the opposing team attacks with 4 blocks.
The helpless Kurobe was in 11th place with a 2-14 win-loss record.
Aquafairies tried to fight as Pimpichaya Kokram recorded the lone double-digit scorer with 11 points.
Still, it was not enough where Kurobe’s American Merete Lutz only delivered five out of 20 spike attempts.
Since a member from the NEC Red Rockets has been under the league’s health and safety protocols, the matches of Ageo were postponed.
The games of Santiago and Co. will return on Jan. 29 and 30 against Himeji Victorina (4-11).
