The Univer­sity of South­ern Philip­pines-Foun­da­tion (USP-F) women’s team dumped two foes on Satur­day, Dec. 8, to show their clear in­ten­tion of go­ing the dis­tance in this sea­son of the Cebu Schools Ath­letic Foun­da­tion Inc. (Ce­safi) beach vol­ley­ball tour­na­ment.

The vol­ley­belles from the Lahug-based school took the top spot in the women’s stand­ing with a clean 3-0 (win-loss) record after beat­ing the Univer­sity of San Car­los (USC) and Univer­sity of Cebu (UC) at the Fort San Pe­dro sand court.

USP-F threaded the nee­dle against USC with the game go­ing down to the de­cid­ing third set.

USP-F owned the first set with a 21-15 score, but the USC side did not go down with­out fight­ing, tak­ing a 21-18 set to force a de­cider. USP-F man­aged to get the bet­ter end of the matchup with a six­point edge, 15-9, in the fi­nal set.

There were two other games that were played be­fore USP-F re­turned to the sand court for their next game. USP-F showed no sign of fa­tigue with a dom­i­nat­ing straight sets win over UC, 21-9, 21-9.
