MANILA – The Perpetual Help Lady Altas continued their winning ways as they swept the University of the East (UE) Lady Warriors in the Shakey’s Super League Saturday. 

The Lady Altas scored a convincing 25-22, 27-25, 25-16 against the Lady Warriors to clinch their second straight win in Group A at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum. 

UE had the chance to tie the game at 1-set apiece after holding a 24-20 lead in the second set. 

However, the Lady Warriors setter committed an error to spark a 5-0 run, capped by an ace of Janine Padua to regain the lead, 25-24. 

Ja Lana powered her way off the blockers’ hands to equalize the score but a service error followed by another ace of Perpetual ended the set, 27-25. 

A block to KC Cepada’s top spin hit gave the Lady Altas an 11-6 advantage in the third set. Razel Aldea scored another ace to extend their lead to 13-7. 

Shaila Omipon made it an 18-9 separation after an off-the-block hit, pushing her team near the sweep. An attack error punctuated the match.

Omipon led the Lady Altas and scored nine markers, all from spikes.
