The Arellano University Lady Chiefs extended their winning streak to 17, dating back to last season, after clobbering the Lyceum of the Philippines Lady Pirates, 25-16, 25-17, 25-11, at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The defending champions were unrelenting, with four Lady Chiefs scoring in double-digits. Rookie Necole Ebuen powered in 11 points. Third-year open hitter Regine Arocha and Arellano’s middle blockers Mary Anne Esguerra and Andrea Marzan each provided 10 markers.

Conversely, no Lady Pirate managed to score in double-figures.

“Maganda naman talaga ang nilalaro ng mga bata. Lahat kasi kami determinado na makakuha ulet ng championship. Alam nila (Lady Chiefs) na kailangan pataas nang pataas ang ginagalaw namin,” said Arellano head coach Obet Javier.

The Lady Chiefs also limited their errors to a season-best 16, while the Lady Pirates surrendered 24 miscues.

Christine Miralles and Monica Sevilla each supplied the struggling Lyceum with eight point apiece.

The Lady Chiefs will look for their sixth win of the season when they face the red-hot University of Perpetual Help System DALTA (4-1) on Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre. The Lady Pirates (1-4) take on the undefeated San Beda College (4-0) on Wednesday also at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Scores

AU (3) – Ebuen 11, Arocha 10, Esguerra 10, Marzan 10, Prado 3, Ramirez 3, Liu 2, Balanoba 1, Donato 1, Verutiao 0, Buemia (L), Flores (L)

The Arellano University Chiefs stayed on top of the NCAA Season 93 Men’s Volleyball standings, surging to their fifth straight win after slashing the Lyceum of the Philippines University Pirates, 25-18, 25-21, 21-25, 25-17 at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Chiefs had another straight-set victory in sight until a error-filled third set swung to the Pirates’ favor. According to Chiefs head coach Sherwin Meneses, his team suffered from a spell of complacency which he hoped they grow out of.

“Sabihin na nating minsan, medyo nagre-relax talaga o nagiging over-confident ang players. Nangyayare talaga ‘yun pero, siyempre, ayaw mong magtuloy-tuloy ‘yun sa mga susunod na laban,” said Meneses who admitted his team still has ways to go, especially with their defensive skills.

Demy Lapuz led the Chiefs with 17 points while Kevin Liberato and Joseph Cabillan each tallied 14 markers.

The Chiefs get a chance to claim the solo lead when they face the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas (5-0) on Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Joeward Presnede topped the Pirates with 15 points while Jhonel Badua added 14.

The Pirates (1-4) take on Final Four contenders San Beda Collega (3-1) on Wednesday also at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Scores

AU (3) – Lapuz 17, Cabillan 14, Liberato 14, Dela Paz 11, Segovia 4, Domingo 2, Soriano 2, Meneses 1, Arellano K. 0, Arellano T. 0, Liberato J. 0, Blanco (L), Esguerra (L)

LPU (1) – Presnede 15, Badua 14, Saporna 7, Lajara 6, Samonte 2, Ilano 1, Uy 1, Estranero 0, Rubio (L)
