WATCH DLSU Lady Spikers Down FEU Lady Tamaraws to Take Game 1

Two-time defending champion De La Salle Lady Spikers need only one more win for a three-peat in UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball. This after the Lady Spikers edged the FEU Lady Tamaraws in straight sets at the Araneta Coliseum on Saturday.

Though it was straight sets victory for the ladies from Taft Avenue, the score reveals just how evenly matched the two teams are 29-27 25-21 25-22. In the end, it may have been La Salle’s championship experience which determined the outcome.

It was a hard-earned victory for the Lady Spikers, who were pushed to the limit by the ladies from Morayta. And it has been this way all season long. During the elimination round, La Salle was victorious in both games but these were five-set squeakers.

DLSU now needs just one more victory to clinch their third straight UAAP women’s volleyball championship, and their 11th overall. But FEU will do everything to prevent that on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum.
