MANILA, Philippines — Far Eastern University had no trouble at all on their way to sweeping Polytechnic University of the Philippines, 25-16, 25-14, 25-14, to maintain its clean slate in the Shakey’s V-League 12 Collegiate Conference on Saturday, July 25 at the FilOil Flying V Arena. 

Bernadeth Pons led the rout with 13 points she culled from 11 attacks and a couple of service aces. Guest player Jovelyn Gonzaga added 10 points as the Lady Tamaraws notched their third straight victory in as many games to top Group A standings.

“Okay yung performance ng mga bata kaso sumasabay pa sila sa kalaban,” head coach Shaq Delos Santos pointed out key weaknesses his team must address heading into match-ups against fellow UAAP squads University of the Philippines and National University.  

“Yung service namin ang dami namin errors. Itong last set yung kaunti lang. Kailangan mas mabuo pa yung team namin kasi medyo nawawala pa sa set plays namin.” 

(The kids played okay but they still matched the pace of our opponents. We had plenty of errors with our services. This last set we managed to minimize that. We need to be more complete as a team because we still get lost in set plays.)
