    Women's Volleyball: The first almost-won game

    Ateneo vs Adamson
    25-22, 22-25, 15-25, 25-15, 8-15

    You know that saying about how some losses are actually moral victories? Sometimes it's a cop-out and sometimes it's not.

    But in the case of the Ateneo Lady Spikers' five-set loss to Adamson to start out their UAAP Season 71 campaign, Ateneo certainly made a statement that rather than fold when down two sets to one, they'll battle, claw, and rally their way through every match.

    To understand the severity of that statement, one must go back to Season 70 of the UAAP Women's Volleyball tournament.

    Heading into January 9, 2008, the Lady Spikers were tied with FEU for second at 3-1 behind defending champion UST. Their next assignment was a pre-tourney favorite, the Adamson Lady Falcons.

    The match was the second one scheduled that day and it sowed the seeds for this campaign. Ateneo went into the game in high spirits but they were soon dampened when their foes made short work of them in the first two sets, 25-14 and 25-13, in a superb display of blocking and hitting.

    Early in the fourth quarter, setter Karla Bello injured her ankle, which further stymied Ateneo's attack. A few minutes later, middle blocker Bea Pascual rose for a twisting spike but landed awkwardly and with a shriek that silenced the Blue Eagle Gym crowd of a few hundred. It took a few minutes before she was carried out with an ACL injury that would knock her out of the tournament.

    Although Pascual's injury galvanized the team in the third set, they still fell, 25-22, casting a pall of uncertainty on the season.

    Ateneo did finish with a 8-6 record,its best ever in the tournament and good enough for its first-ever Final Four berth. But they were 6-0 against the top three squads of the league and awaiting them in the semis were the Falcons.

    Just as it was in the elimination rounds, Adamson swept Ateneo in all their sets for a perfect 9-0. Every game was finished in an hour and 15 minutes.

    It was a crazy off-season as the team saw the exit of coach Ronald Dulay who moved down the road to UP. San Sebastian's legendary coach Roger Gorayeb was brought in and almost immediately, the team was overhauled.

    "We need a change in our mindset and in our attitude towards the game of volleyball," said Gorayeb who was fresh from his V-League conquest of UST. "And for now I only need these 10 players."

    The only holdovers were Pascual, Kara Acevedo, Steph Gabriel, Misha Quimpo, and Averil Paje. And there were five rookies -- Fille Cainglet, Angeline Gervacio, Gretchen Ho, Jamenea Ferrer, and Aillysse Nacachi.

    Pascual, only in her junior year, inherited the mantle of team captain.

    Cainglet and Gervacio are from St. Scholastica's College where they led the Junior Scions to back-to-back WNCAA volleyball crowns. Cainglet was MVP for three years running while Gervacio was adjudged the Best Attacker in last year's Juniors tournament.

    Gretchen Ho was Acevedo's teammate at Immaculate Concepcion Academy where they formed a fearsome attack line along with Chyna Ledesma.

    The Lady Spikers' new setter is Jamenea Ferrer who is from Hope Christian High School. She distinguished herself in the Shakey's Girls V-League. where she led her school to the title and was hailed as Best Setter and MVP for her superb efforts.

    The last rookie is Aillysse Carol Nacachi, a middle blocker from Canossa Academy.

    The Lady Falcons too unveiled their new look. Gone were their heavy hitters in setter Janet Serafica, wing spiker Jackie So and Michaelle Segodine. But they also featured a high-scoring rookie in Paulina Soriano.

    In the first set, featuring an energized attack and some good blocking with Pascual back in the middle, Ateneo took the first set 25-22.

    Falcons coach, Minerva Pante, returned the favor by having her players come out with an energized attack that found open floor in the Ateneo defense. Incredibly, a 10-minute brownout delayed the second set and cooled down the Lady Spikers when they found their bearings. The respite allowed Adamson to settle down and they upended Ateneo for their own 25-22 win in the second set.

    Unable to regain their momentum, Ateneo fell into a deep hole 10-3 early in the third set and were unable to mount a rally as the Lady Falcons were a set away from notching their first win of the season.

    But the lights went out once more and the resulting 10-minute delay allowed Ateneo to soothe their nerves and focus on their game plan. They went back to the court with renewed purpose and took the fourth set 25-15 and the stage was set for a pulsating finish.

    The fifth set had all the makings of a close game that would go down the wire as both exchanged points for an early 4-4 tie. Then a spate of errors and lapses in defense allowed Adamson to finally put away Ateneo 15-8.

    "Sayang," said Gorayeb as he smacked his hands together after the match. "May chance manalo. Pero maganda rin pinakita ng mnga bata. Hindi sumuko at lumaban. Pag nag-click na mga yan lalong gaganda yung laro nila."

    Gervacio and Cainglet led the team in scoring with 16 points apiece while Acevedo and Ho both chipped in 11. Pascual, who showed no tentativeness in doing battle at the net, added 5 while Ferrer finished with 4.

    Gorayeb sat down and allowed himself to relax. He was pretty worked out in the last two hours. He hoped for a first win in his first-ever UAAP stint. It wasn't so much for himself as for his team and his girls. He stood and patted Acevedo on the cheek and joined his team for a post-game huddle.

    welcome to the thread!

    Bakit parang undermanned ang eagles? 10 lang sila? Hindi ba nagkaroon ng tryouts?

  6. #6
    ^Yun ang system ni Coach Roger, 10 lang palagi.

    11 sila at first, pero ayun, nung V-League, di na kasama si Khrysette Onishi (the one on Gervacio's left), kaya 10 na ulit.

    That Thrilling Won Game That Almost Got Away
    Ateneo vs. UE
    25-17, 25-19, 20-25, 16-25, 24-22
    by rick olivares



    During Ateneo’s first game of the season last Sunday, Roger Gorayeb, resplendent in blue, stood throughout the whole game perhaps an indication of how big it was going up against the Adamson Lady Falcons.

    In this second match of the year versus the UE Amazons, he stood up only once during the first two sets and it was only for a few seconds. When his Lady Spikers committed an error or misplayed the ball, he planted his left hand into the side of his face in dismay.

    By the time the game had reached a fifth set after UE had come back from two sets down, he was in a state of controlled fury. He threw down his bottle of mineral water in disgust during the disastrous fourth set when the Recto volleybelles wrested the momentum from his faltering squad.

    The hallmark of last year’s offense was that the attack came from the wings and from the middle.

    This year, a lack of heavy scoring from the middle has forced the open spikers to shoulder much of the attack load and that has made the offense somewhat predictable. Gorayeb concedes that the team is a year or two away from becoming a major contender but that doesn’t mean that his Lady Spikers will not give it the old college try in Season 71.

    The UE squad may not make anyone quake in their sneakers more so after they played so poorly in the first two sets, but the Amazons of Coach Virginia De Jesus are certainly not wanting in spunk.

    With Ateneo ahead 9-8 in the third set, the team lapsed into a series of errors and poor execution. UE forged ahead with 6 straight points to go up 9-14.

    Another 8-0 blitz by UE that gave them a 13-21 lead guaranteed that there would be a fourth set. “Binigyan nila ng buhay,” explained one of media reporters covering the game as the crowd got into the now exciting match. “Medyo nag-relax.”

    Against Adamson last weekend, the two brownouts changed the momentum for both teams. In this game that had all the makings of a laugher, the shift was more of the human kind.

    It was a disturbing trend that Gorayeb noted also in the first match – a propensity to commit errors in bunches that tend to demoralize the team that sinks their play. And they had once more fallen prey to that against UE (the Lady Spikers average 38 errors a game).
    .
    If Charo Soriano scored the bulk of last year’s points, the good thing about this year is the attack is spread a little more. And in this match, the veterans – particularly Misha Quimpo and Bea Pascual as they chipped in 13 and 10 points to the team’s collective 79 points (their opponents surrendered 31 points off errors).

    The team is young without a doubt but they showed remarkable resiliency in their last two matches that have both gone down the wire. Inexperience and all, this is a team that does not give up. And that builds character.

    The fifth set featured eight lead changes and several errors that had a prolonged the suspense and the match.

    With two points to go in the fifth set at 13-11, a service error by Quimpo gave some life back to UE. And when they had a chance to put Ateneo away at 20-21, Mary Grace Masankay returned the service error to notch the game at 21-all.

    Then Pascual scored the last of her points off a spike. Angeline Gervacio added one of her own before Quimpo capped her best performance thus far as she finished off their equally resilient foes with a power drive UE got not receive.

    After the match, the team had smiles on their faces as they got that hard-earned first win and Gorayeb’s first in the UAAP. The coach was understandably upset that it could have been a short afternoon for them. But look on the bright side, how good can this team be after they’ve played a few more games and collected a few more wins? Think of what we might see when Ateneo Lady Spikers are finally on?

    I think we have to make a thread for Dzi Gervacio. She deserves it. After all, she's leading the MVP Race. Haha.
