MANILA—De La Salle University made a quick work of Far Eastern University, 25-16, 25-18, 25-21, to stay undefeated in the UAAP Season 85 women's volleyball on Saturday at the Philsports Arena in Pasig.

Marionne Alba was named as the Player of the Game as she distributed the ball well with her 19 excellent sets as the Lady Spikers remained unbeaten after five games.

Thea Gagate top-scored with 13 points on nine attacks, two blocks, and two aces, Angel Canino had 13 points, while Leila Cruz and Jolina Dela Cruz ended with 10 points apiece for DLSU.

"Hindi ko inaasahan na magiging ganon kabilis pero marami pa rin kami kailangang itama sa team kasi nga medyo nagkakaroon pa ng lapses lalo na kapag malayo na kami, biglang nagrerelax," said interim head coach Noel Orcullo.

Sophomore Alleiah Malaluan also made her season debut for La Salle after being sidelined their first four games due to a minor knee injury. 

She entered in the second set with the Lady Spikers ahead, 12-7, and played the rest of the frame, getting one point—an off-the-block kill that ended the set.

FEU was just within a point in the third, 21-22, when it shot itself on the foot by committing two errors paired with a Gagate ace to seal the game for the Lady Spikers.

Chenie Tagaod had 10 points in the losing cause while Alyzza Devosora chipped in nine points of her own as the Lady Tamaraws dropped to 2-3.
