MANILA, Philippines — Eya Laure took charge in Chery Tiggo’s giant-slaying road trip, propelling the Crossovers to a pivotal victory over Cignal in the 2024 Premier Volleyball League (PVL) All-Filipino Conference.

The open spiker showcased her all-around game to lift Chery Tiggo past Cignal, 26-24, 25-20, 26-24, on Thursday at Philsports Arena in Pasig City. 

Laure unloaded 16 points built on 11 attacks, two kill blocks, and three aces on top of 13 excellent receptions as the Crossovers improved to a 6-2 slate tied with Petro Gazz.

Displaying consistency on offense and defense, the University of Santo Tomas product earned her first PVL Press Corps Player of the Week nod for the period of April 9 to 13 in the flourishing professional league organized by Sports Vision. 

Trust was paramount for the 25-year-old Laure and the Crossovers, who trailed Cignal for much of each set before rallying to victory. 

“Malaking bagay talaga na nagtutulungan. Merong bibitaw, pero may hihila pabalik. Isang malaking bagay po ‘yun lalo na pag padulo na ‘yung game, yung set, na may nagre-remind samin sa labas kung ano yung mga dapat pa naming gawin, dapat pa naming resolbahin para ‘di na nangyayari,” said Laure.

“May mga malalaking factor kasi na kung titingnan minsan maliit lang. Hindi bababa yung morale mo na okay magkamali ako, pero meron pa rin naman akong kakampi na nagtitiwala sakin and of course yung mga coaches din so isang malaking bagay din ‘yun.”

“Syempre po back to training, lahat pagtatrabahuhan,” said Laure. “So itong mga nakikita niyo, result na ‘to. Pero sa training din kami nagpupukpukan, dun namin tinatama ‘yung mga mali namin, ‘yung mga pagkukulang namin, para pagdating sa laro madali na lang, sabi nga ni coach Kungfu.
