Di Makatulog sa Gabi sa Kaiisip! Eya Laure vents frustration on NU loss

No one hates losing more than Eya Laure.

Which is why Laure lost her sleep when the UST Golden Tigresses failed to close out the game in five sets against the NU Bulldogs in the opening game.

“Last game kasi medyo hindi ako nakatulog ng maayos. Parang sayang,” the 20-year-old outside hitter confessed.

“Hindi ko na-explain after ng game kung ano ‘yung naramdaman ko na ayaw ko maramdaman ulit.”

As an athlete who is used to winning, Laure knew that she should move forward to the next game ahead of her.

“Ayoko na ulit maramdaman ‘yung pagod ka na pero ‘di ka pa rin makatulog. Siyempre, masakit naman pero ‘yung masakit na ‘yung feeling na ayaw mo na mangyari ulit ‘yung sa team mo,” she said.

Sunday’s game against the FEU Lady Tamaraws was the perfect time for the younger Laure to exact revenge together with the Golden Tigresses.

Indeed, UST just handed FEU a three-set beatdown thanks to Laure’s team-high 16-point and 14-dig effort.

For Laure, she was happy to see her teammates thriving towards their empathic victory.

“Ngayon sa laro na ‘to nakita ‘yung strength ng team namin, na once na mag-usap kami, lalabas at lalabas ‘yung magandang performance sa isa’t isa na makakatulong sa team namin,” Laure stated.

Of course, it wasn’t just Laure who took the blame for the team’s loss which is why she credited her teammates for being in the same page during the game.

“Alam ko sa sarili ko na ‘yung buong team naapektuhan din. Nakita naman sa training na sobrang nagdo-double time lahat, lalo na sa receive,” she shared.

The Season 81 runner-up has yet to scratch the surface this season, and the redemption season continues for the Golden Tigresses as long as they continue to improve every game.

“Kaya kahit papaano, gagawin talaga namin at pupunan namin ‘yung pagkukulang namin,” Laure assured.
