MANILA—University of Santo Tomas vented its ire on University of the East with a 25-17, 25-16, 25-17 straight-set win in the UAAP Season 85 women's volleyball on Wednesday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Eya Laure did the heavy lifting for the Golden Tigresses with 17 points on 15 attacks, a block, and an ace as they bounced back from a four-set defeat to the Adamson Lady Falcons last Saturday.

Nine of the 11 UST non-libero players used by Reyes were able to score at least two points with middle blockers Imee Hernandez and Pia Abbu contributing eight and seven points, respectively.

The Lady Warriors were up by a point at the second technical timeout of the third set before the Golden Tigresses unleashed a lethal finishing kick to complete the sweep, 25-17.

"Malaking bagay para sa amin kasi first round we started with a loss, ngayon second round ganon din ang maganda naman bumabalik kami agad after ng pagkatalo," said UST head coach Kungfu Reyes.

KC Cepada and Van Bangayan were at the forefront of UE's attack again with 12 and 11 points, respectively, while Ja Lana added 10 points but that was it.

The Golden Tigresses moved up to 6-3 with the victory while the Lady Warriors slid to 0-9 and is now closer to elimination.
