Adamson outlasted the University of Santo Tomas in five thrilling sets, 25-27, 25-20, 16-25, 25-22, 15-11, to win the bronze medal in the preseason collegiate conference Shakey’s Super League on Saturday, November 11. 19, at Rizal Memorial Stadium.

Trisha Tubu led the way for the Lady Falcons with 18 points on 15 kills, two aces and a block to end their SSL campaign with a podium finish.

After a close first set, Adamson got the job done in the latter stages of the final frame where it mattered most.

Tied at 7 after Xyza Gula’s attacking error, Louie Romero flew in for a kill down the line to give the Falcons a lead.

However, the UST team would not have gone down without a fight after Pierre Abellana’s back-to-back hits saw the final set in its fourth stalemate at 11 all.

In the ensuing game, Cassandra Carballo made a costly mistake for the Tigresses after crossing the halfway line, which gave the Falcons momentum –– allowing them to score the final four points needed to seal victory.
