La Salle remains on top with comeback win over FEU

Just like in their first round match, it went the full distance. However, it was the Lady Spikers turn to do the comeback trail. The comeback was a success this time.

Behind 18 points each by Kim Dy and Majoy Baron, the Lady Spikers remain on top of the field with a hard-fought 5-set win over FEU 25-17, 21-25, 16-25, 25-20, 15-5 today. The victory also secures them a playoff for a place in the semis.

After dominating the Lady Tams in the opener, the defending champions went cold and eventually trailed two sets to one. It took a solid team effort, including timely contributions by several off-the-bench players to force a decider.

With momentum on their side entering Set 5, the Lady Spikers raced to an early 5-0 lead and pulled away for good. Championship experience along with the right breaks enabled them to complete this come from behind win.

The team has now won 4 games in a row and at 8-2 have avoided a probable 4-team tie for 1st place had they lost. They look to extend their run when they face last place UE next Saturday.
