first_img15 Taal towns now under total lockdown LATEST STORIES NU was at the mercy of La Salle’s onslaught, which now holds a 3-1 card.La Salle outscored NU, 34-25, in spikes, 14-5 in service aces, and interestingly enough the Lady Spikers also dominated the Lady Bulldogs 9-1 in blocks.Coming into this game, the Lady Spikers were the best blocking team in the league with an average of 2.8 per set while NU was second with 2.45 and that figure is a glaring representation of how much the Lady Bulldogs faltered. But more importantly for Gorayeb, it’s his team’s intangible that were in question.“We didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, La Salle didn’t do anything out of the ordinary,” said Gorayeb. “The players themselves surrendered, they threw in the white towel really early.”ADVERTISEMENT For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.
