STI SVC: STI College Global City makes it to the finals

Lyka Caniya was unstoppable

The hard starting STI College Global City team did it again one more time as they came back from one set down to bring down to earth the last unbeaten team STI College Ortigas-Cainta 17 - 25, 28 - 26, 25 - 22, 25 - 13. The win assured the Global City squad the second slot in the finals of the STI Women's Volleyball Challenge.

STI College Ortigas- Cainta went on a rampage in the first set as they capitalized on miscues by the Global City defense and banked on the duo of Spiker Sabrina Umali and setter Kate del Rosario that gave headaches to the Global City defense. The Ortigas-Cainta team eventually came out on top 25 - 17 with plenty to spare.

The second set once again was like night and day for the Global City Lady Spikers. Like a diesel engine that is already ready to romp but still not yet reached its peak, the Global City squad fought back. This time both teams went toe to toe with the Taguig based volleybelles coming out with a hard fought 28 - 26 second set win. This gave the Global City girls the needed confidence once again to stomp on their opponents.

The third and fourth set was another familiar domain for the Global City team as they finally pushed on the overdrive button and left their rivals miles away. Team Captain Lyka Caniya once again led the GLobal City onslaught with Senior High Sensation Daisy Salimbacod once again providing the needed intimidation and net defense to stifle the Ortigas-Cainta squad for two sets 25 - 22, 25 - 13.

STI College Global City is a position to duplicate the feat of their brothers that won the initial staging of the STI National Basketball tournament as they battle STI College Sta. Maria for the crown.  The Global City team is coached by their Career Adviser/ Volleyball Guru Lee Nufable.
