FEU-D, NUNS breeze past foes

Far Eastern University-Diliman and National University Nazareth School romped past their respective foes to keep their grips on the second spot of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines Season 86 high school boys’ volleyball tournament last Sunday at Adamson Gym.

The Baby Tamaraws, defending champions of the division, made quick work of De La Salle-Zobel, 25-7, 25-16, 25-10, while the Bullpups routed University of the Philippines Integrated School, 25-3, 25-12, 25-10, to rise to 4-1 in the standings behind University of the East, which remains unbeaten after four games.

Guided by a dominant performance from Vince Rebusquillo, the Baby Tamaraws established early dominance with a 13-8 advantage and maintained control throughout the entire set.

The deficit proved insurmountable for the Junior Spikers, as FEU-D initiated a nine-point run late in the set, securing a 25-10 set victory with a kill from Eli Naguit and picking up their fourth straight win.

Meanwhile, the Bullpups displayed a strong performance in the third set as it took an 11-2 lead.

NUNS spurred a 5-0 rally before UPIS responded with a three-point run of their own, aided by two errors from Irilis Kasim and a service ace from JM Navarro.

A crosscourt hit from Matthew Abut set them up at match point before a Japhet Casabar attack saved them a point.

Abut delivered the final kill, concluding the game at 25-10 and posting their second straight victory.

DLSZ and UPIS fell to 1-4.

In the girls’ division, NUNS secured their third win after crushing Ateneo de Manila University in straight sets, 25-7, 25-5, 25-12.

The Lady Bullpups dominated the third set, taking an early lead at 11-4.

At 21-12, NUNS scored the last four points through attacks from Yesh Noceja and Nat Tizon, along with two aces from Noceja, securing the win with a final score of 25-12.

NUNS advanced to a 3-2 record while Ateneo dropped to 1-4.
