Soltones soars as San Sebastian survives TIP


The Open Conference MVP was again unstoppable as San Sebastian Lady Stags survive a determined TIP Lady Engineers in a thrilling five set, 25-22, 13-25, 25-18, 16-25, 15-7 to book a ticket in the quarterfinals of the ongoing Collegiate Conference.

Soltones dominated with 28 points off 26 kills while Katherine Villegas and Denice Lim smashed 11 markers apiece to improve the Lady Stags’ slate to 3-1.

SSC-R will join Group B winners University of Santo Tomas, Far Eastern University and University of the Philippines.

The Lady Stags overcame a tight fifth set, 5-4, with back-to-back points and never looked back.

Guest player Mylene Paat finished with 17 points for TIP, which were assured for at least a playoff for quarterfinals with a 2-2 record.
