Perpetual Help completes Set 5 comeback to unseat EAC as NCAA men's volley champ

By Ivan Saldajeno

SAN JUAN, MM--Perpetual Help returned to the top of the NCAA men's volleyball plateau after making a huge rally in the end and depose erstwhile champion EAC, 25-22, 23-25, 29-27, 22-25, 17-15, in the title decider at the FilOil Flying V Arena on Tuesday.

Down, 5-11, in the final set of the full-length Game 3, the Altas mounted a huge comeback but needed to endure two deuces before finally dethroning the Generals.

Rey Taneo and Bon Castel each tallied 18 points for Perpetual Help, which won the NCAA men's volleyball title for the 11th time. Taneo, because of his late heroics, was named Finals MVP.

Season MVP Howard Mojica finished with a game-high 28 points, but he fell short in leading EAC to its second straight title.
