Limping Lady Eagles survive tough Lady Pirates

Injury-riddled Ateneo de Manila University survived a gritty stand of the Lyceum of the Philippines University, 25-23, 25-20, 25-20, Saturday to get back on the winning track in Group A of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Maddie Madayag and skipper Bea De Leon saw action after skipping the Lady Eagles’ four-set defeat against Far Eastern University last week and delivered nine and eight points, respectively.

Jules Samonte and Ponggay Gaston finished with eight markers each for Ateneo, which improved to 2-1 win-loss record.

“Definitely, we’re happy about the win. It’s always good to win,” said De Leon, who was unavailable last game to attend an immersion in Capas, Tarlac.

Madayag was back in action after skipping the Lady Eagles’ last match due to an ankle sprain.
