ATENEO SWEEPS FEU TO GO 4-4
Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU) crushed Far Eastern University (FEU) with a 25-22, 25-13, 25-23 sweep in the UAAP Season 84 women's volleyball tournament, Thursday at Mall of Asia Arena.
With such a feat, the Blue Eagles were able to retaliate and moved to a 4-4 standing with Faith Nisperos leading the team with her 19 points from 15 attacks, three aces, and one block to go with nine excellent receptions.
But coach Oliver Almadro said that despite the three-set sweep, it does not mean that his team got an easy win.
Ateneo easily grabbed the first and second set with three points and 12 points gap, respectively.
But it was in the third set that the Katipunan squad was challenged the most as Shiela Kiseo topped FEU with nine points.
“FEU played well also especially nung third set and we know naman na FEU will really not give in easily. They will challenge, nakita naman natin yung mga previous games nila, habang tumatagal yung game nacha-challenge nila yung kalaban,” coach Almadro said.
Lady Tamaraws was able to go near from 19-22 to 22-23 but FEU’s Chen Tagaod miscued an attack which set Ateneo for a match point, 24-22.
With Tagaod’s attack error, this sets the pace with Ateneo but FEU was able to get another score and Joan Narit’s service hit the net to give Ateneo the first receive to its setter but Ateneo’s Erika Raagas was able to read block FEU’s Shiela Kiseo and win the game, 25-23.
