FEU whips NCAA champs Arellano in V-League clash
MANILA, Philippines — The Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws outlasted NCAA champions Arellano University Lady Chiefs, 25-23, 21-25, 25-21, 25-16, to grab a share of the top spot in Group A of the Shakey's V-League 12 Collegiate Conference on Sunday, July 19 at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.
Bernadeth Pons unleashed 21 points, with 18 she earned off of attacks and 3 blocks, as FEU claimed a 2-0 slate tied for first in their group with National University.
Guest player Jovelyn Gonzaga had 12 kills on a total of 15 markers, while Mary Joy Palma added 10 points including 3 blocks.
The Lady Tamaraws had some difficulty stabilizing themselves and committed 39 errors but figured in a mean finishing kick in the fourth to avoid a decider.
Danna Henon was the only Lady Chief in double figures with 11 on 10 spikes.
Guest player and former Lady Bulldog Mina Aganon and Menchie Tubiera added 9 points apiece as Arellano slipped to 1-1.
