Lady Falcons claw Lady Chiefs to take Group B lead

Adamson University hurdled erstwhile unbeaten Arellano University in straight sets, 25-20, 25-22, 25-16, Saturday to take solo lead in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Lady Falcons gave head coach Air Padda her first consecutive victories since she assumed the post last year. Adamson improved to 2-0.

“It’s an accomplishment sometimes . . . it could be really small for other teams but this was huge for us,” said Padda.

Skipper Jema Galanza led the Lady Falcons' assault with 18 points, 16 coming off attacks while Eli Soyud, who had a career-high 27 points in Adamson’s five-set win over University of the Philippines, finished with nine markers.

The Lady Falcons poured 46 attack points and were active on defense with five kill blocks, 65 digs including 21 coming from Galanza and 28 excellent receptions, 20 courtesy of libero Tonnie Ponce, to frustrate the reigning NCAA champions.

“I wasn’t expecting this (sweep). I was expecting a better fight,” Padda said of their easy win. “I have never seen them (Arellano) play in person, only on TV so I wasn’t sure how strong their middles were.”
