Ateneo de Manila University moved into a share of the lead with University of Perpetual Help by bucking a slow start and repulsing San Beda, 25-18, 25-17, 25-21, in the V-League Collegiate Challenge men’s play at the Paco Arena in Manila.

Outside hitter Amil Pacinio poured in the bulk of his 15-point output in the tight last set before Jet Gopio took over in the clutch to complete the straight-set romp following a four-set victory over the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals last Sunday.

“We still have to work on our reception. That’s the thing you do when coming off a loss,” said Ateneo head coach Timothy Sto. Tomas.

“I’m blessed with talented setters and hitters, so we need to capitalize on that,” he added.

Jian Salarzon blasted in 10 attack points and finished with 11 points while Kennedy Batas put in a 10-hit game, including a crucial block in the third as Ateneo matched Perpetual Help’s 2-0 slate.

Kevin Montemayor fired 10 points on eight kills and two aces while Andrei Bakil scored seven points for San Beda, which also lost to Perpetual Help last Friday.

Far Eastern University tightened its defense to make up for its offensive miscues yesterday to bring down Perpetual Help, 28-26, 17-25, 25-17, 25-13, for its second straight win in women’s action.

The Lady Tamaraws came through with 19 blocks with Chenie Tagaod, Mitzi Panangin and Jazlyn Ellarina combining for 10. Tagaod also flourished in attacks with 12 kills for a 16-point output while Panangin produced eight kills for a 12-point showing.
