San Sebastian seeks the first of the needed two victories to sweep its way straight to the finals as it clashes with Lyceum of the Phl U today in the women’s division of the 92nd NCAA volleyball tournament at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan City.
The Lady Stags, who turned back the Perpetual Help Lady Altas, 25-22, 25-13, 25-13, on Jan. 11 for their seventh win, shoot for win No. 8 in their 2 p.m. duel that will put the former a win away from sweeping the elimination round and swooping their way to the finals where they will enjoy a thrice-to-beat edge.
San Sebastian plays defending champion St. Benilde in the final elims playdate on Wednesday.
LPU, for its part, is coming off two straight defeats to Perpetual Help, 21-25, 27-29, 23-25, on Jan. 13 and Arellano U, 23-25, 23-25, 20-25, Thursday to fall to 5-3 (win-loss) and a setback away from being eliminated from the Final Four.
Or the Lady Pirates could spoil the Lady Stags’ sweep bid while keeping their Final Four hopes alive.
“We really have no choice but to go for a win,” said LPU mentor Emil Lontoc in Filipino.
And that is the reason San Sebastian coach Roger Gorayeb is a little wary.
“It’s always hard to play a team that is desperate so we really have to watch out and play hard,” said Gorayeb.
In juniors play, LPU guns for a sweep and an outright finals appearance as it tackles an already ousted San Sebastian at 3:30 p.m.
