Arellano U cruised in the first two sets before encountering tough resistance from the Lady Bombers, who were in their first semis stint since the return of their volleyball program in 2008. With the troika of Regine Arocha, Jovie Prado and rookie Necole Ebuen leading the way, the Lady Chiefs made their move midway in the third to walk away with a return ticket to the Finals.
