Lady Tams struggle past Falcons

MANILA, Philippines — Far Eastern U bucked an injury scare on prized rookie Lycha Ebon as it nipped Adamson U, 30-32, 25-20, 23-25, 25-20, 15-13 to start its second round campaign on a high note in the UAAP season 81 women’s volleyball at the Ynares Center in Antipolo yesterday.

Ebon exited the match after hurting her right knee early in the fifth set but the Lady Tamaraws remained unrelenting, racing to an 11-6 lead and dousing a late charge by the Lady Falcons to join the Santo Tomas Tigresses at third with their similar 5-3 marks.

FEU ended its first round campaign with a loss to last year’s finals tormentor La Salle but got back on track by repeating over AdU, which it defeated in their initial meeting last March 10.

“It’s good that we won but bad as well because of the injuries that the players sustained in the game,” said Lady Tamaraws coach George Pascua, as his squad also lost Jeanette Villareal in the first set after she hurt her ankle.

“I told my players that you need to play because you want to help your teammate who was hurt. It will be harder for them if we lose because they would have wanted to play had they not got injured,” he added.
