Ateneo De Manila University versus De La Salle University held their game for Game 2 on Wednesday March 06, at the Sm Mall of Asia Arena.
An almost close to call for Ateneo happened from the set 1 of the game, but the power of the De La Salle cannot be overwhelmed. Ateneo starts for De Jesus, Ferrer, Cainglet, Ho, Gervacio, Valdez, and Lazaro while La Salle presents Esperanza, Tiu. Marano, Reyes, Gumabao, and Galang.
The game for the first set is favored for the Lady Spikers. Ateneno tried to beat them, but Galang and Maranon supresses them. Valdez tried to give attacks so that he can chase their score against La Salle, but the set is concluded for the Spikers. The scores ends 23/25
Set 2 was first favored to the Blue Eagles and Valdez was the one giving the lead for them. The defenses of both teams were extremely heightened. De La Salle was suppressed in the scores as the Eagles gives great shots. Later, the tables were turned and La Salle gives consecutive attacks crippling back the Blue Eagles.
Cainglet tried to head straight to the scores together with Gervacio, but when the ace server Reyes held the ball, it was then concluded that set 2 is for the Lady Spikers again. The scores for the second set, 25/20
The records after two sets is 2 for DLSU and none for ADMU.
Set 3 starts, and a question rose if DLSU will win the game in just three sets. This question has been answered by Galang, the youngest player of La Salle.
The three girls of Ateneo, Cainglet, Gervacio, and Valdez tried hard to reverse the situation of the game, but La Salle’s Galang really stood out as she brought the scores for the Spikers to the lead while making an impassable trail for the Eagles.
Then again, after the stand out of Galang, set 3 ends in favor again for the Lady Spikers and that gives the end for the Game 2 finals. The scores for the third set 25/16
Ateneo ranked 1st runner up while La Salle has been declared champion again, grand slam for the third time in UAAP Season 75 Women’s Volleyball.
All the players of the game were very thrilled, awed, and became emotional after the game. Michelle Gumabao became the Most Valuable Player for the Finals.
