Blue Eaglets just too much for the Junior Archers
The Junior Archers could not sustain a good first half effort as they lost to the Ateneo Blue Eaglets this morning 57-71 in a rematch of last year’s finals at the Araneta Coliseum.
DLSZ was in control for almost the entire first half but a late charge by the defending champs trimmed the margin to two by halftime. It was all Ateneo in the second half as they erected a 15-point lead midway in the third period and held DLSZ scoreless for a long stretch. The Blue Eaglets were just too good on both ends of the floor as they thwarted any attempt by the Junior Archers to comeback.
The team fell to a 3-4 record to close out the first round. Ateneo remains undefeated at 7-0.
