MANILA, Philippines – De La Salle-College of St. Benilde (CSB) extended its perfect run to three games after a 25-20, 25-18, 25-15 sweep of Colegio de San Juan de Letran in the NCAA Season 95 women's volleyball tournament, Monday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

All 11 players fielded in by coach Jerry Yee scored, with Chelsea Umali leading the way for the Lady Blazers with seven points.

Klarisa Abriam, Michelle Gamit and substitute Jade Gentapa each had six points for CSB, which dislodged defending champion Arellano University on top of the standings.

The Lady Blazers' young duo of Gayle Pascual and Mycah Go came off the bench and produced five points apiece.

The Lady Knights kept the match close in the opening frame before the Lady Blazers pulled away late, with Diane Ventura capping her four-point outing in the set with a kill.

Yee was able to shuffle his rotation in the second and third set, which worked wonders for CSB.

Letran dropped to 1-1 in a tie with University of Perpetual Help System Dalta and Jose Rizal University.

Chamberlaine Cuñada finished with 15 hits for the Lady Knights.

Meanwhile, Ruvince Abrot had two service aces to finish with 15 points as CSB downed Letran, 25-21, 25-16, 25-22, to raise its record to 2-1 in the men's division.

Arieh Barba scored 10 points as Letran earned its first juniors win with a 25-12, 25-11, 25-8 rout of La Salle Greenhills.
