Marck Espejo on fire as Ateneo sets Spikers’ Turf title duel with NU

Marck Espejo was a one-man wrecking machine as Ateneo entered the finals of the Spikers’ Turf Collegiate Conference with a sweep of La Salle Monday at the Philsports Arena. 

The high-flying Espejo fired 24 points off 16 hits, 6 aces and 2 blocks for the Blue Spikers, who manhandled the Green Spikers, 26-24, 25-19, 25-17, to arrange a championship duel with NU.

Rex Intal, Josh Villanueva and Karl Baysa combined for 24 markers while Ish Polvorosa was stellar anew with 38 excellent sets.

In the second game, the Bulldogs tripped UST, 25-19, 25-18, 25-21, behind Madz Gampong’s 21 points.
