Legends’ Corner: Stephanie Pheasant and The First Dynasty

Once is luck, twice is coincidence, three times is a pattern. Not everyone might buy into this saying but perhaps in the collegiate football scene, it holds a lot of weight. The UAAP Women's Football Championship has been defended successfully five times throughout its history but only two teams managed to prolong their dominance to more than a couple of...

There’s really no secret to what the Lady Spikers do

While our players don't figure prominently in the individual stats areas, our team is actually solid in all areas. No one player dominates in any category. All players on the floor contribute in different areas, and each player is skilled enough to deliver in other aspects. While our first string setter Cobb is the primary distributor, all players can pass the...

La Salle makes a statement to the rest of the league

It was that kind of win that nobody saw coming. Congrats coach Ramil! What you hoped for happened. The Lady Spikers did surprise the Lady Eagles, their supporters...and surprisingly, even the Lasallian community as well. But seriously, the team delivered a performance we know they are capable of. Their depth was in full display with Des Cheng and Tin Tiamzon giving...

Lady Spikers demolish Ateneo to formally clinch Final Four berth

The last few moments may have been tense and anxious ones for everyone in the Green and White gallery but the DLSU Lady Spikers dug deep and even won the breaks of the game to register a season sweep of Ateneo, 25-17, 25-13, 25-23, Saturday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. After breezing through the first two sets of the highly...

8 things I like and don’t like heading into La Salle-Ateneo Round 2

The first (and last) time that I wrote this type of column was to recap the first seven games of DLSU’s UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament. With three games remaining in the eliminations, this is hardly end of the elims for the Lady Spikers; however, Saturday’s game against Ateneo, officially match No. 48, likewise hardly qualifies as “just...

DLSU take revenge on UE to keep pace for Final Four

At this point of the season, you need to do whatever it takes to survive. The De La Salle Men’s Football Team earned a hard-fought 2-0 victory over UE earlier today at the FEU-Diliman field. The win avenged the Taft-based XI’s first round setback to the Warriors and kept them in the hunt for a return trip to the...

Fandom: Derecho o Baluktot?

Before anyone accusses me of campaigning, this is not a political endorsement. Anyone who says otherwise really embodies the latter point. Baluktot kayo.So what's this about anyway? I am writing about FANDOM. Sports fandom to be general about it, volleyball fandom to pinpoint it, and a certain MR.DERECHO to epitomize and defend it.Well the very word fan comes from...

Lady Spikers solidify 2nd place after sweeping Adamson

In what could be La Salle’s shortest game in terms of total match time in UAAP Season 81, the Lady Spikers only needed 70 minutes to hand the Adamson Lady Falcons a 25-15, 25-18, 25-16 beating, Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Coming off a huge four-sets win over the UST Golden Tigresses last week, the three-time defending champions were...

Vergara’s brace leads La Salle to comeback win over Adamson

A win is always the best remedy to a poor run of games. After three matches without a win, the De La Salle University Men's Football Team took out all of their frustrations on Adamson University as they won 4-2, Sunday morning, at FEU-Diliman. La Salle overcame an early error from rookie goalkeeper Franz Brosoto to earn the win. Brosoto failed...

La Salle on track for that semis twice-to-beat

The Lady Spikers are very much in control of their destiny at this point. The team has 4 games left in the elimination round. Two of those opponents are at the bottom of the standings (Adamson and UE) while the other two, though formidable, are teams that they have beaten convincingly in the first round (Ateneo and FEU). La Salle is...
