In their last two encounters [in the First Round, a week previous,
and at the Uni-games in Roxas City, last Oct., 2011] - -
the Lady Eagles beat the Lady Falcons - so Coach Pante [above]
needs an A +++ game from her wards -
[led by Team Captain Angelica Quinlog] to beat Gorayeb's girls.
The Lady Falcons manage to take the Third Set -
but the ever confident Ateneo crew [above, being given pointers by their Captain - Fille Cainglet] regroups and closes it out in the Fourth Set, 25-19.
