MANILA, Philippines – The final tally had Adamson dominating, 25-20, 25-15, 25-19, but in a bizarre turn of events, it was Perpetual Help who had the last laugh.

Due to forfeiture following a violation of league rules regarding Adamson's guest players, the Lady Altas instead, came out on top, 25-0, 25-0, 25-0, Tuesday in the Shakey's V-League at the Arena in San Juan.
According to league rules, on the general rule, "each team is allowed two guest players."

The special provision for student guest players states that "teams may opt to have three, provided that all guest players are students who are enrolled in any school in the Philippines for the school year 2010-11."

"A combination of both [special and general rule] will not be allowed."

The Lady Falcons have two guest players in Nerissa Bautista and Michelle Laborte, which is still in accordance with the ruling.

The violation came though, when the third, Faye Guevarra was fielded in the second set.
League commissioner Tony Boy Liao notified Adamson coach Dulce Pante of the technicality at the start of the ensuing set.

Pante shook it off after the match but was visibly upset.

"It's okay, walang kaso sakin [it’s no problem with me]," said Pante. "But why didn't they [the league] screen the line-ups beforehand."

"I thought a team can have one student guest player along with two guest players," added Pante.
Perpetual Help upped its record to 2-0 while Adamson dropped to third place at 1-1.
