College of Saint Benilde came back from an opening set loss as it downed San Beda University 17-25, 25-18, 25-22, 25-22 to stay perfect in the NCAA Season 95 volleyball Thursday at The Arena in San Juan.

Gayle Pascual led the Lady Blazers with 20 points, while Diane Ventura contributed 14 points, including two service aces, while Chelsea Umali had 11.

“Masaya na wala pa kaming talo,” said CSB team captain Jewel Lei. “Na-test ang maturity namin, nagre-relax kami kampante hanggang sa mahabol kami. Paisa-isa di namin napapasinin ang score.”

“Pero push lang ang pace hanggat di pa tapos ang game kaya ‘wag titigil,” she added.

CSB, which collected 13 blocks, improved its record to 6-0, the only unbeaten team in the elimination round.

University of Perpetual Help System DALTA handed defending three-time champion Arellano University its first defeat after a 5-0 start last Wednesday. The Lady Altas and the Lady Chiefs are tied for second and third places with similar 5-1 cards.

The Lady Red Spikers dropped their second straight game following a 3-0 record but still stay at the No. 4 spot in the standings.

Nieza Viray and Cesca Racraquin each scored 13 points while Trisha Paras and Ella Viray contributed 10 points apiece for San Beda.

In the men’s division, St. Benilde edged San Beda 23-25, 25-17, 27-25, 19-25, 15-9 to join Arellano in third place at 4-2.

San Beda also posted its third win in five juniors matches following a 25-7, 25-16, 25-8 romp of CSB-LSGH.
