After suffering a slight setback in the second game, the Lady Blazers quickly got back on track and used a wide array of offensive strategies to easily dispatch the Lady Knights and extend their current winning streak to three games. Despite this, Letran was able to grab a set from the unbeaten Taft squad. 

Team captain Mycah Go delivered an impressive 17-point output, 17 digs, and 14 excellent receptions, while Lady Blazer Jade Gentapa added 15 markers. 

Together with Go and Gentapa’s sharp spikes, Gayle Pascual, who excelled for Lady Blazers with 13 points, and Michelle Gamit, who assisted by scoring 11 points, created a massive problem for the Lady Knights' floor defense.

As a result of the Lady Knights' poor defense, the Lady Blazers were able to rack up five aces in their victory over the Lady Knights. 

The Lady Blazers will be facing the Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) Lady Generals on Friday, June 24, at 2:30 p.m., with a live telecast on GTV, GMA Sports, and NCAA Philippines.
