Lady Chiefs outlast Lady Maroons to clinch a semis berth

Arellano University welcomed head coach Obet Javier's return with a ticket to the best-of-3 semifinals in Group B of the inaugural Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Lady Chiefs had more fuel left in their tank heading into the deciding set after an extended fourth frame to outlast University of the Philippines, 22-25, 25-10, 25-19, 32-34, 15-3, on Saturday and closed the elimination round with a 4-1 win-loss record.

Arellano University joined elimination-round tormentor Adamson University in the Final Four and will await which team in Group A it will take on in the semis.

“After ng game namin sa Adamson malaki nang in-adjust namin kasi ang laki talaga ng kakulangan namin. Napakaganda na mahaba ang preparation namin before sa UP,” said Javier, who skipped the Lady Chiefs’ easy win against Technological Institute of the Philippines last September 18 to undergo an operation to remove his gallstones.

Jovielyn Prado scored 26 points, 23 coming off kills, and added 17 excellent receptions for an all-around performance for Arellano.
