Go Archers -

Jrs cruise past UPIS. Lady Archers lose to FEU in OT

The Junior Archers crushed UPIS 78-56 Saturday to remain tied with FEU for first place at 11-2. Gabby Reyes led DLSZ with 21 points and 7 rebounds. Though already assured of a final four berth, the team’s last elimination round game against Ateneo (8-5) is still a must-win. With the second round ending this Saturday, the NU Bullpups (10-3) can force a three-way tie for the top spot if they beat FEU and if the Junior Archers lose to the Eaglets. A win by DLSZ will assure them of the twice-to-beat incentive in the semis.

Meanwhile, the Lady Archers fell a tad short in their comeback as they lose to FEU 59-53 in overtime last Sunday. Trailing for most of the match, La Salle managed to tie the score in the closing seconds of regulation. Unfortunately, they were not able to sustain their run in the extra period as FEU escaped with the win to remain on top of the standings at 11-2. Despite the defeat, the Lady Archers (9-4) still can force a tie for the second final 4 seed if they win their last elimination round game against NU coupled by a UST (10-3) loss to FEU this Sunday.
