Adamson blanks Ateneo for 68th straight win in UAAP Softball
The Adamson Lady Falcons swept the first round of the UAAP Season 78 Softball tournament.
Defending champion Adamson University needed only four innings to rout Ateneo, 13-0, to complete a six-game sweep of the UAAP Season 78 softball first round at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium on Monday.

The Lady Falcons allowed the Lady Eagles to score only one hit to extend their remarkable winning streak to 68 in the make up match that was postponed last Feb. 6 due to rain.

National University, which lost to Adamson University, 2-5, last Saturday, finished second with a 5-1 card.

In other matches, University of the East stunned last season’s runner-up University of the Philippines, 2-1, while University of Santo Tomas nipped De La Salle, 3-2.

The Lady Warriors and the Tigresses forged a three-way tie in third place along with the Lady Maroons at 3-3.  The Lady Archers fell to 1-5 while the Lady Eagles remained winless in six contests.

The start of second round will start Wednesday at the Malate venue.
