UP cut a 19-13 lead to just one, 19-18, with five straight points.

Adamson then scored three straight points to grab a 22-18 lead capped by a heads-up play by Ronn Domingo, who found the open spot.

The lead was cut anew to two, 23-21, with a kill by Daniel Nicolas.

However, Nicolas made a crucial service error to push the Falcons to match point, 24-21.

Jude Aguilar led Adamson with 14 points, with 10 coming from attacks, three from blocks and a service ace.

Mark Coguimbal added 11 markers.

Louis Gamban was the lone Fighting Maroon in double digits with 10 points off nine attacks and an ace.
