Ateneo stamped its class at the start of its Shakey’s V-League Finals series against Season 7 second conference champion Adamson, coming away with a 25-23, 18-25, 25-20, 25-20 on Sunday at The Arena in San Juan.

Fille St. Merced Cainglet, who was earlier awarded the Most Improved Player of the Conference, played her best game in the tournament, teamed up with conference MVP and Thai import Kesinee Lithawat in leading the Lady Eagles to the win.

The Lady Eagles are now a win away from clinching their first ever V-League crown.

Cainglet scored 20 hits, a block and an ace while Lithawat topscored for the team with 15 hits, seven blocks and an ace.

The Lady Falcons fought back from a 16-23 down in the first set after scoring nine straight points, five of which coming from Ateneo’s errors to win the set.

“Bago pa lang kasi ito sa kanila," said Ateneo coach Charo Soriano.“They’re feeling the pressure so we have to make them feel and believe na kaya nila."

Cainglet actually made her presence felt all over the court as she also made eight successful digs and two blocks.

“Nag-focus lang po talaga ako sa laro ko kasi talagang gusto po naming manalo. At saka ini-offer po namin ang game na ito para sa dati naming teammate na si Mona (Bagatsing), whose mother passed away this morning," said Cainglet.

Two other Lady Eagles -- guest player Alyssa Valdez and Angeline Gervacio -- scored in double figures, posting 19 and 11 points, respectively. - RCJ, GMA News
