All-Adamson women’s softball title clash looms

/ 01:18 AM May 17, 2014

MANILA, Philippines — Two Adamson teams remained in a collision course for a championship duel in the women’s open division of the Cebuana Lhuillier Summer Grandslam 8 Softball Invitational in Marikina Friday.

Still unbeaten in four matches, Adamson 2 was poised to clinch the top seeding with Adamson 1, which has a 4-1 slate, likely to gain the No. 2 seed.

Adamson 2 is made up mostly of alumni players, while Adamson 1 has the core of the Lady Falcons squad that won the UAAP crown early this year.

Brunei’s Chikara, with a 3-1 slate, has an outside chance of spoiling the all-Adamson final.

The Airmen, with a 4-0 card, is expected to be joined in the next round by Philippine Navy (3-1). PAF-2 was at 2-2.

Asaphil president Jean Henri Lhuillier expressed satisfaction over the number of teams that are seeing action this year.
