“Gusto naming makapanalo pa rin, kahit isa pang panalo.”
These are the expectations of Lady Falcons head coach Onyok Getigan heading into the tail end of a lackluster season for the team.
Through 11 games in the tournament, the Lady Falcons have managed just a single win which was a 3-set sweep over NU in the first round.
Unfortunately they could not replicate their first round performance and surrendered the game in the second round, allowing NU to even the score.
With three games to go, UE, UP and Ateneo are the remaining opponents for the Lady Falcons before they can completely set their focus on Season 82.
Among their last matchups, the team stands the best chance to find an elusive win over UE. With both teams currently sitting at the bottom of the rankings with only one win separating them, all signs point to their Saturday matchup being the best chance for the Lady Falcons to get back into the win column.
But it will not be an easy task for the Lady Falcons as UE showed it has enough fire power to put away the Lady Falcons if they stay complacent. After taking the first set, the Lady Falcons struggled to contain UE’s Judith Abil, leading to UE winning the game in 4-sets.
Fortunately for the Lady Falcons their rookies and young players have begun to find their confidence after getting much exposure in their game against DLSU. This was a welcome development for coach Onyok who puts a high premium on developing a deep roster.
Following Trisha Genesis and Chien Ave’s dependable performance, coach Onyok will have more options to complement and help out the veterans Joy Dacoron and EliSoyud.
The Lady Falcons have also upped their training with coach Onyok homing in on the aspects of their game that need improvement.
Only when the lights come on and the drums start playing will the Lady Falcons know if their hard work will pay off.
