Bedart-Ghani, Mau combines for 44 points in come-from-behind win over Sta. Lucia

United Volleyball Club’s Kalei Mau and reinforcement Yaasmeen Bedart-Ghani headlined their team’s come-from-behind victory over Sta. Lucia, 12-25, 15-25, 25-17, 25-22, 15-9, in the 2019 Philippine Superliga Grand Prix 2019 held today at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The duo each produced 22 points for the beleaguered UVC squad, who needed to overcome a two-sets disadvantage before defeating the Lady Realtors.

Refusing to give up, open hitter Mau did the heroics for the UVC squad as she propelled the team to a deciding set and zoomed to seven-straight points in the decider, including the game-winning smash.

Bedart-Ghani, who chipped in 21 points from attacks and a point off ace, carried the team earlier in the game before Mau went to work.

Meanwhile, amid getting a balance output from four players, the Lady Realtors succumbed and squandered a two-set advantage in favor of UVC.

Imports Casey Schoenlein and Molly Lohman along with locals Pam Lastimosa and Amanda Villanueva all finished in double-digits at 19, 17, 14, 11 points, respectively in a losing fashion.

UVC looks to bring its winning ways as it faces F2 Logistics next Tuesday while Sta. Lucia rares for a bounce-back against the Cargo Movers Thursday next week.
