Adamson stretches UAAP softball streak to 50 after downing UP

By Dugout Philippines

Defending four-time champion Adamson stretched its impressive softball winning streak to 50 games, even as baseball titlist Ateneo stayed perfect in three games in UAAP Season 77 action over the weekend at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium.

With Queenie Sabobo setting the tone by drilling a homerun in the early goings, the Lady Falcons needed only four innings to dispose the UP Lady Maroons, 8-1, for their second straight victory on Saturday.

Adamson trails behind UE, which pulled off a stunning 3-2 upset over NU to grab first place with a 3-0 card.

The Lady Warriors leaned on Josephine Francisco, Charlene Quintos and reigning homerun queen Roxzell Niloban in the first three innings to frustrate the Lady Bulldogs.

In the other softball match, La Salle took solo third with a 2-1 mark following its 3-1 conquest of Ateneo.
