Go Archers -

On to the WNCAA Finals for the Junior Lady Archers

Contributed by Louie Razon

With another overwhelming defensive display, the DLSZ Junior Lady Archers cruised past sister school, La Salle College Antipolo. The final score was surprisingly lopsided: 75-31. Topscoring again was junior point guard Kat Nunez. Benches were emptied in the fourth quarter.

It was a sweep for Group B teams as St. Jude upset defending champion and Group A leader Miriam College in the other semifinal. The first game of the best-of-three finals is set either October 1 or October 2. DLSZ had previously beaten St. Jude in their very first game of the season by a very slim 2-point margin. In that game, rust and first-game jitters showed on both sides and the Alabang girls were playing without 5’-11” center Jamie Roxas, who was coming off rehab for a knee injury. It should be a very interesting series as both teams have gelled and improved considerably as the season has progressed.
