LA SALLE Green Hills shoots for a two-division sweep of the Energen Mini-Youth Ball Metro Invitationals elimination round this weekend at Blue Eagle Gym.

The Junior Archers, who won all their games by double-digit margins, aim for a 7-0 slate in the Mini division (9-11 years old) versus Don Bosco at 9:30 a.m. today and Ateneo-B at 11 a.m. tomorrow.

In the Contender division (12-14), the defending champions vie for the same record against Ateneo-B at 9:30 a.m tomorrow.

National U, which climbed to third place last week, also tries to stay on a roll versus Ateneo-B at 10:30 a.m. today and Notre Dame of Greater Manila at 1 p.m. tomorrow in the other Contender matches.

Eight teams clash in a single round-robin elimination of the tournament supported by TaosPuso Foundation, TriDharma Marketing Corp. and MYBall Inc.

The top four advance to the semifinals where the first- and second-seeded schools hold twice-to-beat advantages.

Trailing the Junior Archers in the Mini division are Xavier (6-1), defending champion Ateneo-A (4-2) and Ateneo-B (3-2).

Lourdes School Mandaluyong (3-1), NU (3-2) and Ateneo-A (3-3) also want to stay within striking distance from the Junior Archers in the Contender games.
