Lady Maroons gun for third straight win sans Bersola

By Ivan Saldajeno

UP will start its UAAP women's volleyball second round campaign minus ace blocker Kathy Bersola as it takes on UE at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

As action resumes following a week-long break as Pope Francis came to the Philippines, the Lady Maroons, looking for their third straight win to barge to the .500 mark, clash with the still winless Lady Warriors at 2 P.M.

Chester Ong will take over the place of Bersola, who injured her ACL in UP's previous win against Adamson.

In the nightcap, La Salle and FEU clash at 4 P.M. for a chance to redeem themselves from stinging defeats.

The Lady Spikers lost for the first time this season with a heartbreaking five-set defeat to the Ateneo Lady Eagles.

The Lady Tamaraws, on the other hand, found themselves on the wrong end of an upset by the UST Tigresses that snapped a five-game losing streak.
