The sun came down for Unit III, as their finals’ rival, Unit I, claimed the championship berth for Sepak Takraw this year, 2-0.
Although the court was slippery due to heavy rains prior to the game, there was no stopping the Red spikers from dominating the first set, 21-9.
Team Captain Dave Taroy led Unit I in pouring down sunbacks and head spikes that highlighted the weak defense of the Yellows.
Unit III wasn’t able to pull off a momentum shift as Unit I continued the rampage on the second set, burying the Yellows in 21-17 score.
“Sa tamang diskarte lang an, di man samo masyado nakaapekto yung ulan,” Taroy said.
Last year, Unit I was also declared champion in Sepak Takraw.
