The UST Golden Tigresses faltered late against the FEU Lady Tamaraws, 25-19, 19-25, 25-21, 20-25, 10-15, for their second loss in the UAAP Season 86 women's volleyball tournament on Saturday, April 13, at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

With the loss, the Tigresses slid to the second seed with a 10-2 standing, while the Lady Tamaraws improved to 7-4 for the fourth spot.

The win helped FEU secure a Final Four spot.

Returning from a one-game absence due to dehydration, Angeline Poyos delivered 20 points off 14 attacks to provide the Tigresses a much-needed boost on the offensive end, albeit for naught.

On the other hand, FEU's Jean Asis tallied 16 points, including five in the final set to put away UST.

Errors proved costly for the Tigresses, who coughed up 36 in the game—nine more than the Lady Tamaraws.

Following deadlocks at 12-12 and 17-17, the Golden Tigresses took the first set via an 8-2 run highlighted by Poyos' back-to-back aces and Regina Jurado's two straight kills.

The Tigresses then got themselves on a 2-5 hole early in the second set as FEU leaned on their hitters against UST's second-string players to knot the set score.

Down 0-4 and 4-8 early, Xyza Gula and Poyos ignited the offense in the third set, eking out a finishing 11-5 burst to erase FEU's lead and snatch the third frame.

The Lady Tamaraws got the Tigresses back in the fourth set as FEU preserved their lead throughout the period and pulled away when it mattered most, forcing the decider.

Tied at 7-7, Asis took over for FEU, breaking the deadlock with three straight kills en route to extinguishing the Tigresses.

Faida Bakanke led the Lady Tamaraws with 21 points while Christine Ubaldo orchestrated their offense with 21 sets.

Meanwhile, Regina Jurado and Jonna Perdido paced the Tigresses with 15 and 12 markers, respectively.

UST will look to bounce back versus the UE Lady Warriors on Sunday, April 21, at the Araneta Coliseum.
