MANILA, Philippines — What was expected as a close fight turned out to be blowout win for the Adamson Lady Falcons.

The Lady Falcons needed only three sets to turn back the University of the Philippines Lady Maroons, 25-9, 27-25, 25-20, in the 80th UAAP women's volleyball tournament at the FilOil Flying-V Arena in San Juan on Wednesday.

Now at 2-1, the Lady Falcons already eclipsed their performance last season in which they posted only one victory.

Adamson pounded on UP's poor first ball and registered 17 service aces.
 
It was also a well balanced scoring effort for Adamson as five players scored in double digits.
 
Myelene Paat led the Lady Falcons with 15 points, Jema Galanza added 14 while Joy Dacoron and Chiara Permentilla added 11 and 10 respectively.

Setter Fen Emnas, however, said they are not letting their guards down as they will have tough assignments ahead.

"Yung eagerness in every ball lalo na sa service receive," she said when asked what they still need to improve on.

"Kailangan buo 'yung loob namin doon kasi doon magsisimula lahat," Emnas added.
