Reigning NCAA titlist Arellano U put on a late charge in the second set then took control early in the third to fashion out a 25-22, 25-21, 25-18 victory over San Beda and seize the Group B lead in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan yesterday.
Jovielyn Prado bet-tered her 14-hit effort in powering the Lady Chiefs to a straight-set romp over the St. Benilde Lady Blazers last Saturday with a 16-point production as the Bustillos-based squad gained some momentum in the short single round elims of the two-division tour-nament organized by Sports Vision.
Regine Arocha also unloaded 13 hits for the Lady Chiefs, who also held San Beda ace Cesca Racraquin to just nine points after the former Creamline hitter unleashed a 19-point game in their four-set win over Techno-logical Institute of the Philippines.
“We worked on our defense,” said Arellano coach Obet Javier, whose wards also avenged their Founders’ Cup setback to the same SBC team last July.
