NCAA WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL FINALS CONTINUES ON S+A

The NCAA Season 92 Volleyball Tournament is nearing its end with the historic championship win of the College of Saint Benilde Blazers last Tuesday (February 7) in the Men’s division, while the epic Finals showdown between the Arellano University Lady Chiefs and the San Sebastian Lady Stags continues on Friday (February 10) with their Game 2 airing LIVE on ABS-CBN’s S+A and S+A HD channels, with livestreaming on sports.abs-cbn.com starting 3:30pm.
The Blazers avenged the exit of defending champion Lady Blazers in the Women’s division with a sweep of University of Perpetual Help Altas in their best-of-three title showdown, behind Season MVP Johnvic De Guzman, who finished with 28 points in an epic five-set thriller.

Meanwhile, title-hungry Grethcel Soltones’ quest to bring her school the crown hit a snag after the Lady Stags fell to the Lady Chiefs in Game 1, 18-25, 20-25, 16-25 last Tuesday (February 7). The loss set up a virtual best-of-three showdown between the two schools, with the Lady Stags having a thrice-to-beat advantage after cruising through the regular season with a perfect record.

Led by Regine Arocha, who came out of nowhere to score 14 points to give the Lady Stags their first loss this season, the Lady Chiefs are raring to stage another upset after dethroning the Lady Blazers in the semifinals.

Soltones, meanwhile, will try to prevent another heartbreak after losing in the Finals last season to the Lady Blazers. The outside hitter has been in MVP form year after year for the Red and Gold, and will need all the help she can get as she takes one last shot at glory before graduating from NCAA play.

Before leading the Lady Stags in another championship match, Soltones will be vying for her third straight Most Valuable Player trophy as the NCAA awards the season’s top performers at 3:30pm before the tip-off at the San Juan Arena.

Don’t miss the resumption of heart-pounding volleyball action of the NCAA’s Women’s Division Finals on Friday (February 10), LIVE simultaneously on S+A and S+A HD, and on sports.abs-cbn.com’s livestream starting at 3:30pm.

CSB Blazers, nakamit ang unang kampeonato

NCAA WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL FINALS MAPAPANOOD SA S+A

Hindi pa tapos ang mainit na bakbakan sa volleyball court sa ika-92 na season ng NCAA sa pagpapatuloy ng championship showdown sa pagitan ng Arellano University Lady Chiefs at San Sebastian Lady Stags sa Biyernes (Pebrero 10) para sa Game 2 ng kanilang serye na eere ng LIVE sa S+A at S+A HD simula 3:30pm at may livestreaming sa sports.abs-cbn.com.

Una nang nasungkit ng College of Saint Benilde Blazers ang kauna-unahang titulo nito sa Men’s division noong nakaraang Martes (Pebrero 7), sa likod ng 28 puntos ni MVP Johnvic De Guzman sa loob ng limang set laban sa University of Perpetual Help Altas.

Samantala, nagkaroon ng sagabal sa mithiing titulo si Grethcel Soltones ng Lady Stags nang padapain sila ng Lady Chiefs sa Game 1 nila, 18-25, 20-25, 16-25 noong parehong araw. Dahil ditto, naging best-of-three na ang labanan sa Women’s division finals pagkatapos mabawasan ang thrice-to-beat advantage ng Lady Stags na nakuha nila sa pagkakaroon ng malinis na record sa eliminations.

Pinangunahan ni Regine Arocha, na bumulaga sa Lady Stags sa pag-ambag niya ng 14 na puntos sa laban, para mamarkahan na din ng talo ang record ng Lady Stags. Pagkatapos nila pabagsakin ang defending champions na Lady Blazers sa semifinals, isang upset na naman ang kanilang hangarin kaharap ang Lady Stags.

Susubukan itong pigilan ni Soltones, na ayaw na muling matikman ang pait ng pagkatalo sa Finals nang patumbahin sila ng Lady Blazers noong Season 91. Hindi nagkulang ang outside hitter para sa koponan dahil pang-MVP ang laro nito kada taon at gusto niyang tuldukan ang collegiate career sa pamamagitan ng isang kampeonato.

Bago pangunahan ang Lady Stags sa Game 2,  magkakaroon ng isang awarding ceremony kung saan susubukang makamit ni Soltones and kanyang ikatlong sunod na MVP award sa pagbibigay-pugay ng NCAA sa mga top performer ng Season 92 sa ganap na 3:30pm bago magsimula ang bakbakan sa San Juan Arena.

Huwag palampasin ang mainit na aksyon sa volleyball tournament ng NCAA sap ag-ere ng Game 2 ng Women’s Division Finals sa S+A, S+A HD, at livestreaming sa sports.abs-cbn.com simula ng 3:30pm.
