Ladies, Juniors set sights on Final Four

The De La Salle Zobel Junior Archers end their elimination round campaign with a loss to the Ateneo Blue Eaglets 67-56 last Saturday at the Blue Eagle Gym.

The defending champion Eaglets led throughout the match as they played relentless defense on the DLSZ’s top guns. Axel Torres was the only player who scored in double figures with 12 points while Gabby Reyes was limited to just 4 points. As a team, the Junior Archers were a woeful 22 for 79 from the field as compared to the 55% shooting clip of Ateneo.

DLSZ, with an 11-3 record finishes 2nd in the standings and will still get the twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four. They will face the NU Bullpups (10-4) this Friday, 3PM at the Blue Eagle Gym.

The Blue Eaglets (9-5), just like their senior counterparts are also aiming for a 4-peat this season. They will face FEU (12-2) in the other semis matchup.

Meanwhile, the De La Salle Lady Archers pulled out a come-from-behind 47-39 win over NU at the end of the eliminations last Sunday at the Blue Eagle Gym. Aracelie Abaca led the team with 12 points and 18 rebounds.

Despite finishing with the same 10-4 record as UST and AdU, La Salle was relegated to the 4th seed in the Final Four by virtue of an inferior quotient. They play top seed FEU (12-2) this Friday, 11AM at the Blue Eagle Gym.
