No joking, La Salle is choking

by

Sabi ko choking, hindi Chowking!

Just like paper beats rock and rock beats scissors, it turns out that UST’s pink shoelaces beat DLSU’s  green streaks. Uniform braids over uniform short hair. Face tattoos over arm bands.

The UST Tigresses are slamming the crippling weight of an almost-perfect season on the DLSU Lady Spikers as they took UAAP women’s volleyball championship away in a four-set show of force on February 24 at The Arena in San Juan.

Naks, parang sports writer nga.

Pero in layman’s terms, what I’m trying to say is the Great Wall of Espana is denying the Taft-based hotties a back-to-back this year. Year of the Tiger nga ata, pati sa men’s side favored din ang USTe. Nagsimula lang naman yung momentum ng USTe nung second round e, tapos natalo pa nila ang erstwhile-unbeaten squad ng La Salle. Dun talaga nawala yung kumpyansa e. Nasindak ng Tigresses who pounced on the opportunity.

Never underestimate the power of pink shoelaces!

Kung titingnan, halos parehas lang naman sila ng system (?) e. Both have two significant rookies in Joanne Siy and Abigail Marano (DLSU) and Dindin Santiago and Maruja Banaticla (UST) who should rightly contest the ROY award. Tapos may isang elite open spiker na leader ng team in Paneng Mercado (DLSU) and Angge Tabaquero (UST). Maizo and Alaraca might cancel out each other in this series kaya it’s up to Cha Cruz or Judy Ann Caballejo’s consistent support plays to spell the difference.

Gotta rally her troop.

Winning Game 1, UST is in such a big advantage though I don’t expect La Salle to go down easily. They gotta work on their confidence now, which is coach Ramil’s job. Masyadong tight sila kasi disciplined ng coach sa execution. On the other hand, UST is more relaxed at may angas pa. Parang yung last championship ni Rachel Daquis, Wendy Anne Semana at Maica Morada na sobrang animated at intense nung laban.

Wala akong makitang ibang pic nya na mas maganda kuha e

Sino na panalo mo?

    siguro ang kulang lang kay cha ay consistency. kaya niya gawin lahat, pero parang minsan di mo siya maramdaman, mnsan ang intense niyang maglaro. still love her though. =)

      • em23me Says:

        sana marealize niya yun, and marealize nila coach ramil. =)

      • carL Says:

        pero para sa akin si coach ramil talaga ang salarin kung bakit natalo pa sila.. (nanisi?)

      • em23me Says:

        hahaha bkt naman? i think, he should’ve made cha as the setter as early as set 1, or kht set 2 na. kaye is injured na ata kasi even nung v-day’s game pa.

      • mabz16 Says:

        walang sisihan sir! si coach ramil kasi eh.. hahaha! dapat tlg set1 pa lang si cha na ginawang setter.. sayang! di pa rin nakakamoveon?! haha!

    • mabz16 Says:

      ‘yeah, absolutely, sir! may kakampi pala ko dito.. haha! i was there nung finals game1, medyo dko nga siya naramdaman, medyo off din spikes niya.. then nung game2, set 3 lang siya nagparamdam.. consistency nga tlaga kulang sa knya.. but, still a fan. haha!

  4. UST: Can they defend the title? « sportsCARL..yung red! Says:

    […] And yes, they’ve got coach Shaq delos Santos na naging maganda ang pagkundisyon sa Tigresses nya last season. Pinaniwala nya ang Lady Archers na nasa bag na nila ang trophy pero nung nag-peak na ang USTe e wala nang nagawa ang La Salle. […]
