UAAP VOLLEYBALL: DLSU out to vent ire on UE

De La Salle University wants to bounce back mightily after absorbing its first defeat of the season in its previous outing.
Grand slam-seeking De La Salle University is a dangerous and fearsome team.
What more if the Lady Spikers are coming off a sorry loss?
University of the East will try to avoid getting whipped by a DLSU side looking for a team to vent its ire with after absorbing defeat just three days ago.
Winless in four games, the Lady Warriors will march into FilOil Flying V Centre court against the Lady Spikers already itching to get back on the winning track Wednesday in the 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament.
UE star hitter Shaya Adorador is unfazed of DLSU’s thirst for vengeance after having its erstwhile unblemished record was tainted by National University, 24-26, 25-19, 25-22, 17-25, 14-16, last Sunday.
“Walang susuko. Lalaban at lalaban kami,” said the graduating Lady Warrior.
Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA on SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD on SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.
The loss dragged the Lady Spikers down to second spot with a 3-1 win-loss record behind NU (4-0).
DLSU players after the match immediately left the venue.
The Lady Warriors dropped all of its four games in the season and are on an 11-match losing skid since last year.
UE took a set against Ateneo de Manila University last Saturday before eventually yielding, 25-21, 18-25, 21-25, 14-25.
