Hailie Ripley was equally impressive for the Lady Troopers by contributing 13 points with four blocks and two aces, while former University of Perpetual Help standout Royse Tubino posted 11 attacks for 12 points.

American reinforcement Kierra Holst, an open hitter who campaigned for the US Juniors national team in the 2013 FIVB Women’s Juniors World Championship, also stepped up with nine points.

Meanwhile, the league takes a break to give way for the country’s hosting of the 2016 FIVB Women’s Club World Championships set on Oct. 18 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
