MANILA, Philippines — Alyssa Valdez had 22 points on 15 spikes, 6 service aces and a block as Ateneo de Manila University put away De La Salle University Dasmariñas, 25-13, 25-19, 25-22, in the Shakey’s V-League 12 Collegiate Conference on Sunday, July 26 at the FilFOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.
Back from a short rest period due to her hectic schedule all year, Valdez played like she never skipped a beat as the Lady Eagles remained undefeated in 3 games and now lead Group B standings.
Rookie Jhoanna Maraguinot, who stepped up for coach Tai Bundit in the absence of Valdez, tallied 12 points built on 9 attacks and 3 aces.
Bea de Leon was a force at the net with 5 blocks as part of her 10-point contribution.
The Lady Patriots were slow to start the contest and were unable to get their bearings as they failed yet again to notch their first win of the conference in 3 outings.
Iumi Yongco paced DLSU-Dasma with 10 points while Mariebeth Lara added 7.
