Blue v Green: Alyssa Valdez, Amy Ahomiro shine bright in sunny Doha

Former Ateneo teammates Alyssa Valdez and Amy Ahomiro dazzled as Team Blue outlasted Team Green in a 4-set tussle in an exhibition game in Doha, Qatar over the weekend. 

In front of a wild crowd at the Qatar Sports Club, both Filipino squads duked it out in front of OFWs, but 44 combined points from Valdez and Ahomiro were enough to push Blue past Green, 33-31, 14-25, 25-16, 26-24.


Ahomiro, who will play for Bali Pure in the upcoming Shakey’s V-League Reinforced Conference, led all scorers with 24 and was named match MVP.

Green, which featured the core of Open Conference champion Pocari Sweat, banked on Elaine Kasilag and Michele Gumabao, who had 18 and 15 points, respectively.
