FEU Tamaraws Seize Lead in UAAP Men’s Volleyball with Victory Over UE

PASAY CITY - Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws maintained their unbeaten streak in the UAAP Season 86 men's volleyball tournament by securing a convincing win over the University of the East (UE) Red Warriors on Sunday at the Mall of Asia Arena. The Tamaraws showcased their dominance on the court with set scores of 25-22, 25-17, 25-15, marking their third consecutive victory and propelling them to the top spot in the standings.

According to Philippines News Agency, Jose Javelona led FEU with a total of 11 points, while Martin Bugaoan contributed significantly with nine attacks and two blocks, ensuring a swift victory over the Red Warriors in just one hour and 31 minutes. Javelona expressed gratitude towards their coach for his flexibility and readiness to adjust, which has been pivotal in their successful run so far. Meanwhile, UE's captain John Paul Mangahis fought valiantly, scoring 10 points on attacks, but his efforts were not enough to secure a win for the winless Red Warriors after three matches.
