Head coach George Pascua saw continued improvement from FEU in their third straight win to open the conference
Far Eastern University is only getting better and better as it scored its third win in a row in as many games in the Premiere Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference Women’s Division.
Drawing contributions from both their first and second units, the Lady Tamaraws gored San Sebastian College-Recoletos in three quick sets, 25-15, 25-22, and 25-18, on Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
Heather Guino-o fronted the scoring parade with nine points, all but one coming from kills, while Ced Domingo and Jeannette Villareal contributed eight markers apiece.
With the match out of reach in the third set, reserves Carly Hernandez, Czarina Carandang, Clavel Dejito, and France Ronquillo also saw action and added one point each to the scoring column.
Even without any player in double-digits, head coach George Pascua said this was their most promising game to date. “Kung nung first game, 50 percent tapos nung second game, 60 percent, ngayon, 70 percent na,” he told reporters post-game, referring to the level of their team play.
He then continued, “I trust the process. Hopefully, paunti-unti, by the end of the tournament, ma-achieve na namin yung chemistry.”
Indeed, FEU looked like the more jelled squad as their 20 errors paled in comparison to the Lady Stags’ 32.
They also dominate every facet of the match, with a 6-3 advantage in blocks, an 8-4 advantage in aces, and a 14-3 advantage in excellent sets.
Still, Pascua said the best is yet to come for the Lady Tams. As he put it, “Nakikita ko naman yung progression ng team. Paangat naman nang paangat yung performance namin so sana, ma-maintain.”
Sofia Sarmiento had seven points to top the scoring column for Baste which suffered a second straight setback to start the conference.
