Adamson makes quick work of Ateneo in prep for UST showdown

ADMU (0-4)1XXX121
ADU (3-0)6123XXX12103

Day 4 of the UAAP Softball competition ended quickly.

Reigning UAAP Softball Champion Adamson University Lady Falcons did not allow the still-winless Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles to get heated as they swung for the fences, taking a 12-1 abb. fourth inning win to keep their perfect slate unblemished.

It was a dominant win for the Lady Falcons, a team that has won the tiara the past six seasons, connecting 12 times on offense while Princess Jurado (3-0) only allowed three hits.

“Hindi pa rin kami dapat makontento. Mahirap pag makontento kami kasi ito na yung mabibigat namin na kalaban. Kailangan mag-improve pa rin yung hitting namin,” Adamson head coach Ana Santiago said.

The Lady Falcons immediately blasted six runs in the opening inning against Nikki Borromeo (0-2). First batter Lorna Adorable started the surge with a base hit and was followed by doubles from Riezel Calumbres and Florable Pabiana. The rally was capped by a booming triple from Krisha Cantor and an RBI single by Leslie Benabaye.

However, even with the Lady Falcons’ holding an imposing lead, coach Santiago did not stop nitpicking the flaws in their game as the contest progressed.

“Kanina, kahit malaki na lamang namin, sinasabihan ko pa rin yung mga players namin para ma-realize nila na sa isang game na dikitan, hindi puwede ang ganong pagkakamali,” Santiago shared.

And this was in preparation for their highly-anticipated contest against the UST Softbelles (3-0) on Monday, February 13.

“It’s going to be a classic game definitely,” Santiago guaranteed. “Tingin ko naman it’s going to be anybody’s ball game. Sabi ko lang sa kanila, maglaro lang sila at maging disiplinado sila sa laro.”

Pabiana paced Adamson with two RBI’s and two runs, going 2-of-3. Ursabia and Cantor slammed a home run each as well with both driving in two runs each.
