Ate­neo sweeps Navy, notches 3rd win in PVL

The Philippine Star - - SPORTS - By KRISTINA VIL­LANUEVA

Ate­neo-Mo­to­lite suf­fered from shaky re­cep­tion in the sec­ond set but held on to sweep Iriga-Navy, 25-19, 29-27, 25-14, and re­turn to the win col­umn in the Premier Vol­ley­ball League Open Con­fer­ence yes­ter­day.

The Lady Ea­gles wob­bled in floor de­fense to drop to 5-17 in the sec­ond set but dropped a 19-3 bomb to seize the up­per­hand at 2420. They hung tough to pre­vail, then went trou­ble-free in the third to com­plete the straight-set vic­tory.

Ate­neo-Mo­to­lite thus avenged a 25-27, 19-25, 11-25 loss to un­beaten solo leader BanKo-Per­las to join Cream­line and Po­cari Sweat-Air Force at sec­ond with their iden­ti­cal 3-1 marks while keep­ing Iriga-Navy win­less in six out­ings.

“I told them, ‘You got to have pride. Be re­spon­si­ble in ev­ery­thing you do.’ That’s the num­ber one thing that they need to learn. Most of them they know how to play but some­times they for­get how to win,” said Ate­neo-Mo­to­lite coach Oliver Al­madro. “‘Yung re­spon­si­bil­ity, in­ako ta­laga nila at nag-make way para maka-re­cover kami,” he added.
