Defending champion De La Salle University racked up its fourth win in a row in come-from-behind fashion, as the Lady Spikers hacked out a difficult five-set win over Far Eastern University (FEU) on Sunday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Behind the combined Joe Mixon Authentic Jersey efforts of Majoy Baron and Kianna Dy, La Salle worked its way back from a one-set deficit to claim a 25-17, 21-25, 16-25, 25-20, 15-5 triumph over the Lady Tamaraws.

This was La Salle's fourth straight win in the UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball tournament, hiking their record to 8-2. The Lady Spikers remain at the top of the league standings, and are assured of at least a playoff Womens Tyler Ennis Jersey for a spot in the Final 4.

"'Yung fifth set, kung sino ang kapitan ng momentum, 'yung confidence makukuha mo," said La Salle coach Ramil de Jesus after the game. "Good thing, sa side namin napunta."Baron and Dy each fired 18 points, and Desiree Cheng added 10 markers. Baron in particular was dominant, as she tallied 10 attacks, five aces, and three kill blocks. Dy scored 15 of her points on kills.

The Lady Spikers appeared headed for a quick win after surging to an early 17-4 lead in the opening frame. But FEU showed that they were not to be taken lightly, as they came back to threaten late before La Salle pulled away for a 25-17 win in the opening set.

With momentum on their side, the Lady Tamaraws pounced on La Salle in the second and third frames. FEU unloaded heavy serves on the Lady Spikers and frustrated the defending champions with their net defense, allowing them to claim the next two sets and seize a 2-1 lead.

But La Salle showed its championship poise in the fourth frame, when they held on in crunch time to force a decider. Dy and Baron were instrumental in the triumph, as the former fired an offspeed shot and the latter served up consecutive aces to push La Salle ahead, 21-17.

FEU came to within two points, 19-21, before the Lady Tamaraws succumbed to their own unforced errors in the end game.

The Lady Spikers, now armed with confidence, built a quick 5-0 lead in the final frame. FEU came to within three points, 4-7, off a kill by Cel Domingo, but that proved to be their last meaningful point of the match. La Salle reeled off six unanswered Larry Murphy Youth jersey points, with Dy firing a pair of sharp crosscourt hits, and Baron adding another ace, to completely seize control of the game.

"Noong second and third set, sila rin 'yung nawala," de Jesus said of the veteran pair. "Kaya sabi ko, walang magbubuhat ng team kung lahat tayo mahihirapan sa adjustment ng FEU. So nung dumating 'yung fourth and fifth, sabi ko dapat naka-adjust na tayo."

FEU skipper Bernadeth Pons had 16 points and 12 excellent receptions Pavel Datsyuk Jersey for the Lady Tamaraws, and Toni Rose Basas added 12 markers. But the Lady Tams gave away 35 free points off their own miscues – five of which came in the deciding fifth set.

FEU lost for the second time in three games to drop to 6-4, which is still good for fourth place in the league standings. wholesale jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys china cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys
