MANILA, May 12 (PNA) — The defending champion Lady Falcons of Adamson University (AdU) grabbed their fourth victory in six games against winless University of the Philippines (UP) in straight set 25-15, 25-13, 25-16 for a sure slot in the quarterfinals of the sixth Shakey’s V-League at The Arena in San Juan Tuesday afternoon.

Adamson is now tied with Ateneo-OraCare in fourth with one playdate left in the single round elims of the league sponsored by Shakey's Pizza.

Nerissa Bautista atoned for her mediocre showing in Adamson’s three-set loss to Far Eastern U (FEU) last Sunday as she fired 15 hits while Rissa Jane Laguilles and Paulina Soriano added 14 and 13 points, respectively, for the Lady Falcons.

Setter Joanna Botor-Carpio, who replaced Janet Serafica last Sunday, settled down with her game and produced 37 excellent sets to anchor the team’s offense.

The Lady Falcons face the Stags, winner of last year’s second conference, in the last day of elims Wednesday where the winner will advance to the next round of the tournament organized by Sports Vision.

“We have to limit Thai import Jaroensri Bualee with our blocking. This is the key for us to advance,” said Adamson coach Dulce Pante.

Cathy Barcelon paced UP with nine hits while Rubie de Leon had six points for the Lady Maroons, who closed out their first campaign in the league backed by Accel, Mikasa and OraCare, without a win in seven games. (PNA)<br>vcs/LOR
