LEGAL MANAGEMENT (LM) and Journalism booked their finals seats in the Athena Cup volleyball tourney after defeating Behavioral Science (BES) and Political Science (PolSci), respectively, on Friday.
LM, led by Wayne Parulan, swept BES, 25-17, 25-9, and 25-14.
LM destroyed BES in the second set, with Parulan scoring eight while errors troubled the opposing team.
“Last year sobrang gusto naming manalo tapos ‘di kami nanalo, pero ngayon kumpleto ‘yung players saka alam namin ‘yung mga gagawin, pinaghandaan talaga namin, nag-training talaga kami,” Parulan told the Flame.
With its offense led by team captain Russel Wilfred Estrada, Journalism dismantled defending champion PolSci, 25-22, 25-14, 22-25, and 25-14.
The duo of Estrada and Rex Morales fueled Journalism to crush PolSci in the second set.
PolSci nabbed the third frame after changing their defensive game play. Journalism, however, bounced back stronger in the fourth set.
“[Teamwork] talaga ‘yung nagpanalo. Nagtulong-tulong lang kami para ma-achieve ‘yung goal namin na makarating sa finals,” Estrada said.
Journalism and LM will face each other on Feb. 14 at the Seminary Gym. F
