La Sallians are probably longing for a game when all of our players would play consistently. The veterans, namely Peejay Barua gave a good account of himself this game but sadly, those who carried the cudgels for the team just a week ago were not in their usual selves.
The team is currently on a three-game slide for the first time in more than a decade. The loss against Adamson probably has to hurt the most. With a 4-5 record, the team is currently out of the Final 4 picture if it started today.
All is not lost though as there are still 5 more games to be played. 8 wins would probably secure us of at least a playoff for a semifinal berth. A tall order indeed considering that the Archers have yet to face FEU, UE and UST this round.
A twice-to beat edge may already be out of the question for our team. Securing a place in the final 4 should now be the team’s main focus and if this could be achieved, anything can happen.
This is has got to be a disappointing week for all of us. Counting the Junior Archers’ loss yesterday to the Eaglets, La Salle has lost 4 games against the Blue Bird Schools (the other being Adamson) in 8 days. We failed to hit our target in this bird hunting week.
As to how our team will bounce back after these series of setbacks remains to be seen. At this point, there’s no way to go but UP!
