NU spoils Junior Archers’ finals hopes. Lady Archers eliminated by FEU

The De La Salle Junior Archers’ title bid in UAAP Season 74 came to a stunning end today after losing to the NU Bullpups 49-46 in the deciding game of their Final Four series at the Blue Eagle Gym.

NU thus overcame DLSZ’s twice-to-beat advantage to advance to the finals against FEU-FERN, who dethroned Ateneo 63-56 in the other semis match-up.

It is a sad finish to what had for the most part been a superb season for the Junior Archers. After winning their first 7 games, the team struggled in the second round and was relegated to the second-seed in the Final Four. With most of their players graduating, the Junior Archers will rebuild next season.

The Lady Archers are likewise out of contention as they bow down to the FEU Lady Tamaraws 66-44 in their own semis knock-out affair earlier in the day. FEU will face defending champion Adamson in a finals rematch. The Lady Archers, who lost a couple of key players to injury before the start of the season ends up in fourth place.
