Far Eastern University did University of Santo Tomas a great favor when the Lady Tamaraws defeated three-time champion De La Salle University last Sunday.
Though the game on Sunday may have been a no-bearing match with FEU already locked at the No. 4 spot in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament, the Lady Tams gave the Tigresses a chance to vie for the No. 2 spot and twice-to-beat advantage in a playoff with the Lady Spikers.
As a gesture of goodwill and appreciation, the España-based squad gifted its hard-working Morayta neighbor with a bilao of pancit for merienda.
The gesture was similar to something done by Rain Or Shine to NorthPort in the PBA last month.
Tigresses assistant coach Yani Fernandez confirmed that they gave FEU a bilao of pancit while other fans and supporters of the team also gave the Lady Tams free food.
"Yes yung pancit lang," said Fernandez in a message to ABS-CBN Sports. "Wala lang, pang-congrats and thank you lang."
UST and DLSU will tangle in a playoff for the semifinals privilege on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan in a virtual best-of-three series between the two squads that lest met in the Final Four in Season 79.
The Final Four will start this weekend.
The Lady Tams face no. 1 seed twice-to-beat Ateneo de Manila University in the other semifinals pairing.
