By Dugout Philippines

CLEARWATER—The RP Junior Blu Girls has split their opening day games at the start of the 2017 WBSC Junior Women’s Softball World Championship.

The Cebuana Lhuillier-backed Filipinas demolished Italy, 10-3, behind the heroics of Reese Guevarra, Mary Maguad, Czara Galapon, and Royevel Palma before bowing to Chinese Taipei, 0-13, in their second game.

"The RP Junior Blu Girls’ win against Italy is a great way to ease into the tournament. They have been consistently displaying exceptional skills and performance these past months so I know they will deliver a more impressive showing in their next matches," said Amateur Softball Association of the Philippines president Jean Henri Lhuillier.

The Junior Blu Girls will play against Guatemala on Wednesday (Philippine Time). The Filipinas will next face Turkey, South Africa, and USA to wrap up its games in Pool A where it hopes to finish among the top two spots to advance to the championship round-robin.

After splitting their opening games, the RP Junior Blu Girls hopes to collect more wins to land on top of their group standings.
