Bernadeth Pons earned her third straight triple-double for the season, but Far Eastern University fell in four sets to University of Santo Tomas in a battle of streaking teams on Saturday in the UAAP Season 79 women’s volleyball.
The reliable Pons registered 14 points, 18 excellent digs and 14 excellent receptions, but lamented on the team’s inconsistency that ended the Lady Tamaraws’ 3-game winning streak.
“Ako, hindi ako satisfied sa laro ko kasi alam ko na hindi ako ganun maglaro. Kulang pa talaga,” Pons told FOX Sports after the game.
The Lady Tamaraws marked their game with 33 unforced errors, which contributed to the team’s game-long struggles against an on-target Golden Tigresses.
“Hindi pa talaga namin nakukuha ‘yung consistency namin every game.the veteran FEU gunner.” “For the past two games ang ganda ng nilalaro namin tapos ngayon ganito. Kailangan pa talaga namin maging consistent every game.”
The loss dropped FEU into a share of fifth spot with their tormentors are 4-3 at the close of the opening round of the eliminations.
