But in a stunning turn of events that mirrored what happened in the first and third sets, UE came through with clutch hits to steal the match.It was the second straight win for the Lady Warriors, who also defeated the Adamson Lady Falcons to end the first round. UE won one game each the past two seasons.Now they are looking at turning things around after a poor start this year that led to coach Francis Vicente finally calling it quits.Interim coach Rod Roque drew 21 points from Mary Ann Mendres, while Shaya Adorador added 15.
