Lady Altas shock Lady Chiefs to take series opener

University of Perpetual Help started out cold.

The Lady Altas needed a little time to heat up but when they got their game going, Perpetual completed a come-from-behind 21-25, 25-17, 25-21, 25-20, win over two-time defending champion Arellano University in Game 1 of the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball best-of-three Finals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Friday.

Perpetual, which won their fifth straight game, recovered from a slow start to move a step closer to claiming its first title since winning it all in Season 89.

Game 2 is on February 8.

The Las Pinas-based squad also won in the men’s and juniors division Finals opening games.
