Manila, Philippine-National University faced a first-set knock but was soon able to beat Atenio 18-25, 25-20, 25-19, 25-18, back Saturday and remain undefeated in the UAAP Season 84 Women’s Volleyball Tournament. At the Mall of Asia Arena.

Waking up on the wrong side of the bed, Lady Bulldogs see themselves being the victims of a powerful attack on the starting frame of the Lady Eagle.

Yet instead of folding, Lady Bulldogs Camilla Lamina demonstrates a tough character to get back through expert ball distribution.

Lamina finished with 22 great sets contributing four points. He fed top scorers Princess Robels, Michela Belen and Alyssa Solomon on a field day for NU’s 9th consecutive win.

Robels and Belen had 16 points each, while Solomon had 14 points.

The Lady Bulldogs’ first scoring option, the Robels, was scoreless in the first set but later unloaded 16 as NU continued its dominance in the league, handing Atenio their fifth defeat in nine games.
