Dongallo erupts for 28 points as UE beats Adamson

By Ardyn Gonzales

The University of the East Lady Warriors successfully avenged their first round loss after taking down the Adamson University Lady Falcons in four sets, 26-24, 23-25, 25-18, 25-20, in the UAAP Season 86 women’s volleyball tournament, Saturday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

UE did not waste the 28-point outing of Casiey Dongallo, who bombarded Adamson with 25 attacks, two kill blocks, and a service ace. Riza Nogales was also impressive with 17 markers, including the team-high six kill blocks.

After gaining a 2-1 lead in the match, the Lady Warriors saw themselves down in the first technical timeout.

Slowly but surely, Dongallo led UE’s comeback midway as they tied it at 13-all. From there, momentum stayed on the side of the Recto-based squad.

Dongallo single-handedly carried UE’s offense down the stretch, which ended via an attack error from Adamson.

The Lady Warriors tallied their much-needed second victory before heading into the Holy Week break, while Adamson suffered their sixth loss in eight games this season.
