Lyceum of the Philippines University arrested a three-game slide at the expense of skidding Jose Rizal University, 25-23, 25-19, 25-23, on Saturday in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

After a string of sorry losses to start their campaign, the Lady Pirates finally claimed victory, but not after some anxious moments in the third frame.

Lyceum saw its eight-point lead, 17-9, in the third frame erased by the gritty Lady Bombers, who knotted the count at 17. The Lady Pirates opened a 21-17 cushion only to allow JRU to tie it again at 23.
