November 30 was a jam-packed day of Palarong Atenista 2015 games. In the first game, the Accountancy Lady Griffins were supposedly matched against the Education Sharks, but the latter didn’t make an appearance, leading the Lady Griffins to win the game by default.
On the other hand, the second-game matchup between the Engineering & Architecture Tigresses and Business & Management Lady Vipers drew growing attention from the crowd.
The Tigresses managed to win the first set with a set score of 25-17. The Lady Vipers, however, took charge in the second set and flipped off the scoreboard to 25-18, in favor of the Lady Vipers. It was the attacks came from Carmina Coleen Labrador of Lady Vipers that coiled the game into a tighter and a more intense match.
Making it even more challenging, the windy atmosphere influenced the playing system of both teams, leaving the players to resort to quick adaptive attacks and defenses instead of set ones.
As the game went on, the two teams struggled with getting the lead. But even though the Tigresses fought the game valiantly, it was their miscommunication on the final do-or-die moment that put the Lady Vipers in the winning column with a set score of 25-22. The final set score was 2-1.
For the third and the last game of the morning, the Humanities & Letters Lady Wolves went up against the Nursing Lady Panthers. The matchup had the Lady Panthers scrambling on defense because of the pace that the Lady Wolves played at. The Lady wolves took the first set, 25-13.
Over the course of the game, the Lady Panthers visibly struggled in defending the Lady Wolves’ offensive attacks. The Lady Wolves maintained the score gap over the course of the two sets. Apparently, the matchup ended up having the Lady Wolves as the winning team with a score of 2-0.
