MANILA, Philippines – The Asia Arena extended her winning streak to four after returning to the University of the Philippines on Saturday 25-20, 18-25, 26-24, 25-23 in the UAAP Season 84 Women’s Volleyball Tournament at the University of Santo Thomas Mall.
Eya Laure made three straight attack errors in the match-point but nailed it just in time to ensure the Tigers’ seventh win in nine outings.
The top UST hitter finished with 25 points so the Tigers could face the Lady Maroons for their fifth loss in nine games.
UST held five match points before blowing one after the other, threatening to turn the set around as before.
In the third frame, the Lady Maroons were leading 24-21, before the Louvre made a sharp-angle attack and then the UST frontliners swatted two straight blocks to extend the set.
One UP breach and another lore hit won for the Tigers who have been riding at that pace ever since.
