MANILA—The University of Santo Tomas barged into the win column of UAAP Season 85 women's volleyball after a 25-16, 28-26, 25-21 sweep of Far Eastern University on Wednesday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Rookie setter Cassie Carballo was hailed as the Player of the Game after tallying eight excellent sets to go with one point as the Golden Tigresses tied the Lady Tamaraws at 1-1.

Eya Laure led the Golden Tigresses with 17 points in 14 attacks, two blocks, and a service ace, while Jonna Perdido and Renren Peñafiel shone with 12 and 10 points, respectively.

After an easy first-set triumph, the Tigresses had to double time in the second with the Lady Tamaraws taking control for the majority of the frame before Peñafiel hammered a crosscourt kill and Carballo blocked Alyzza Devosora to give UST the 2-0 advantage.

Back-to-back points for the Lady Tamaraws brought them to within two in the third period, 21-23, but Perdido went off the block before FEU committed a net touch violation.

"We're happy kasi back on track kami. Napolish naman namin kung ano yung naging errors nung last game namin especially endgame," said UST head coach Kungfu Reyes.

Devosora had a team-high 14 points for the Lady Tamaraws, while Jovelyn Fernandez made 13 points.
