It was complete domination for the Lady Chiefs, who sent the Lady Navigators reeling and way off target to getting their first win

MANILA, Philippines – The Arellano University Lady Chiefs rolled to its fourth victory as they swept St. Louis University, 25-13, 25-9, 25-13, in the Shakey’s V-League Season 11 first conference, Tuesday, April 8, at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan City.

The Sampaloc-based side remains the only undefeated team in Group A after Christine Joy Rosario led the way for the Lady Chiefs, finishing with 15 points off 11 attacks and 4 blocks, to tighten their grip on the pool’s top spot.

Despite being the stronger team on paper, an all-business Arellano side met the Baguio City crew as they dominated the match from start to finish, not letting SLU find their groove all-game long.

The reed-thin Danna Henson – despite playing just two sets this afternoon – played her usual big game for Arellano as she poured in 10 points while also completing a game-high 6 excellent digs against the hapless Lady Navigators squad.

The Lady Chiefs were in cruise control against SLU as they only wasted 14 points on errors while also forcing their foes to 21 lapses.

No Lady Navigator scored in double digits as Arellano’s sturdy frontline defense limited Roxanne Almonte to a team-high 8 points and Krissian Tsuchiya to only 5 markers.

St. Louis dropped its third game in as many outings and remained in the cellar of Group A.

Arellano will take on the Adamson Lady Falcons next on April 10 while SLU faces College of St. Benilde on April 22.

Scores:

Arellano: Rosario 15, Henson 10, Tubiera 5, Sagun 4, Carino 4, Prado 4, Dela Cruz 3, Ticar 3, Salamagos 3, Legacion 2, Oserio 1.

St. Louis: Almonte 8, Tsuchiya 5, Rossi 3, Daniel 2, Torres 2, Joseph 1.

Set scores: 25-13, 25-9  25-13.
