Lady Warriors get back on track at expense of Adamson

RIGHT BACK AT YOU. Myla Pablo and Pocari Sweat are right back in a two-way tie for second.
With Philippine Air Force getting a leg in front of them earlier on Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, Pocari Sweat didn’t waste time in keeping in step.
Breezing through Adamson University in three sets, 25-23, 25-14, and 25-19, the Lady Warriors moved themselves back into a tie for the second spot in the 2017 Premier Volleyball League Open Conference.
Imposing their will in every facet of the match, Pocari Sweat had no problems whatsoever in improving to 4-1 – back into a tie with the Lady Jet Spikers who also won earlier.
Myla Pablo drilled down 17 points to show the way for her team in its return to the win column following its first setback in the tournament a week ago.
Providing backup was Kai Nepomuceno who had 14 markers of her own.
In all, the Lady Warriors owned the numbers in terms of spikes, 38-20, as well as blocks, 9-1.
Still, head coach Rico de Guzman saw room for improvement. “Maganda ang nilaro namin, pero hindi pa rin ako satisfied. Marami kaming (kailangang ayusin) sa first ball namin kanina,” he said.
Their floor defense wasn’t so bad either as Jema Galanza was the only player they allowed to score more than six points.
Without any support for its ace hitter, Adamson fell to a 1-4 standing.
