The Ateneo Lady Blue Eagles earned another day in court as they forced the De La Salle Lady Spikers to a game 3 for the UAAP Women’s Volleyball finals this coming Saturday.
The ADMU lady eagles rallied from a 0-2 deficit, with Alyssa Valdez’ 34 points. The three-time MVP awardee was on fire as her teammates, Amy Ahomiro, Jhoana Marguinot, Madeleine Madayag, and Jhoana Maraguinot helped immensely in setting the plays.
The Lady spikers on the other hand were a force to be reckoned with. Especially with Mika Reyes, Ara Galang and Kim Dy all made it difficult for the Lady Blue Eagles to score.
However, the team from Katipunan, with their “heartstrong” theme never gave up. Coming in from behind, knowing that it is a do-or-die match for them, they carried on to win the last three remaining sets; 18-25, 26-28,17-25, 25-16, 15-11.
