Last game kasi medyo hindi ako nakatulog ng maayos parang sayang. Hindi ko na-explain after ng game na ‘yun ano ‘yung naramdaman ko na ayaw ko maramdaman ulit -- Eya Laure
Eya Laure came into the game with just one thing in mind: University of Sto. Tomas will bounce back from its opening day loss in the UAAP Season 82 women’s volleyball.
The sophomore took it to herself to make sure that the stinging collapse of the Tigresses in a five-set defeat at the hands of National University won’t happen again.
“Ayoko na ulit maramdaman yung pagod ka na pero di ka pa rin makatulog,” said Laure, who admitted to losing sleep following their setback last Wednesday.
On Sunday, the Season 81 Rookie of the Year was laser-focused as she put up an all-around performance to spearhead UST’s dominating 25-20, 25-16, 25-18, win over Far Eastern University.
“Siyempre, masakit naman pero yung masakit na yung feeling na ayaw mo na mangyari ulit yun sa team mo,” said Laure.
Laure scattered 16 points including 12 coming off attacks and added 14 digs and eight excellent receptions for the Tigresses.
Learning from their mistakes the last time out, the Season 81 runner-up stepped on the gas pedal right from the opening serve and sustained its hot run to erase the memories of their bitter campaign start.
“As a team, ‘di lang naman ako yung naglalaro eh. Alam ko sa sarili ko na ‘yung buong team naapektuhan din,” said Laure.
UST rained down 45 attack points and were active at the net with six kill blocks.
“Ngayon sa laro na ‘to nakita ‘yung strength ng team namin na once na mag-usap kami lalabas at lalabas yung magandang performance sa isa’t isa na makakatulong sa team namin,” said Laure.
“Last game kasi medyo hindi ako nakatulog ng maayos parang sayang. Hindi ko na-explain after ng game na ‘yun ano ‘yung naramdaman ko na ayaw ko maramdaman ulit,” she added. “Kaya kahit papaano gagawin talaga namin at pupunan namin yung pagkukulang namin na ginawa namin this game.”
