FEU ready to break Ateneo-La Salle finals trend

first_imgFor the past six years only two teams have featured in the finals of the UAAP women’s volleyball finals, and those were Ateneo and De La Salle.ADVERTISEMENT “We were given this chance and I don’t want to lose it,” added Pascua.FEU’s skipper Bernadeth Pons, who has been to the Final Four in four of her five years as a Lady Tamaraw, said the pressure to succeed has always been there for FEU and she knows that it’s up to them to deliver.“The pressure is always there, we’re always reminded that we should always breath in that pressure because if we don’t we will be thrown off track on what we should be doing,” said Pons, who had 17 points against NU, in Filipino.“So we challenge ourselves on what we should do and what our roles are in the team,” added Pons.Even Pons’ younger teammates Toni Rose Basas and Heather Guino-o are aware of the pressure that comes with donning the green-and-gold jersey.ADVERTISEMENT Alab Pilipinas sweep Hong Kong, make ABL Finals “We’ll just use that pressure in a positive way so we won’t have a hard time playing,” said Basas, who finished with nine points, in Filipino. “We’ll just take in what coach tells us.”Guino-o, who had six points against the Lady Bulldogs, echoed Basas’ words while also mirroring her captain’s statements.“We can’t waste this opportunity because we’ve already started on this journey, we should work doubly hard if we want to get into another level,” said Guino-o in Filipino. “We just have to think that the pressure will help us, we’ll handle it the right way so it can help us reach our goal.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Scientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ LATEST STORIES P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident And in those six matchups, the Lady Spikers hold a 4-2 advantage over the Lady Eagles in terms of championships.This duopoly, however, is in danger as No. 2 Far Eastern University tries to spoil the party.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownFEU head coach George Pascua said the pressure is on them to stop another Ateneo-La Salle finals series.“The pressure’s on the players because this can be our 30th title, and we’re the hosts, so the chance is really here for us to be successful,” said Pascua in Filipino after beating National University, 25-21, 25-22, 16-25, 25-20, Sunday in their final elimination round game Sunday at Mall of Asia Arena.
