BULLDOGS HANDLE GECKOS IN 4 SETS

Okkodo holds off GW in evenly-skilled match

By Eriele Salas

It was a successful night for the Okkodo Bulldogs as they had a tough game against the George Washington Geckos which ended in four sets (25-23, 18-25, 25-23, 25-16) on Tuesday night at the Bulldogs home court. Both teams came into the contest with 2-0 records.

Players of the Game Dominic David and Nathan Balbin

Okkodo’s Nathan Balbin, senior, and Dominic David, junior, played outstandingly in the fight to take the win over the Geckos. Balbin had a total of five blocks and nine kills, while David secured four kills and one ace. 

Both teams played amazing offensively and defensively, which explains the Geckos win in the second set. GW’s Daniel Dela Rosa and Kaden Apiag played exceptionally well as they both had a combination of several blocks, aces and kills. 

Dela Rosa had a total of nine blocks, one ace and two kills while Apiag had nine kills and one block. 

Bulldog Deaven Hudtohan was also an important factor of the team’s win as he whipped up several kills to bring the Geckos down. Joel Silvestre also scored four kills for his team. 

After giving up their second set to the Geckos, Okkodo knew they had to make a comeback after losing by six points. “We had a pep talk, and we said, ‘let’s just get back into the game and take it home,’” said Balbin. From the third set onward, the Bulldogs came back stronger and didn’t back down. 

The big win puts the Bulldogs in title contention, but there are some things they need to work on, according to David. “I knew GW was a very strong team, especially when they made the championship last year.” 

In the JV game, Okkodo swept GW 25-20, 25-22
