UST ends Adamson's historic 73-game win streak in UAAP softball
MANILA, Philippines – The UAAP's longest win streak is no more.
The UST Tiger Softbelles put a stop to the Adamson Lady Falcons' historic 73-game winning run with a 6-2 victory in the UAAP Season 78 softball tournament on Wednesday, March 2, at the Rizal Memorial Baseball Stadium.
Adamson, the 5-time defending champion, missed the chance to sweep the elimination round anew and clinch the outright finals berth.
The Softbelles raced to a 6-0 lead. It was only in the 6th inning that the Lady Falcons made the scoreboard on a solid homer from shortstop Queeny Sabobo, 1-6.
With the win, UST forced not just a Final Four round this season, but also a playoff for the second seed and the last twice-to-beat advantage against National University on Saturday, March 5.
UST, which last won the softball crown in 2010, has a similar 8-4 record with NU. Adamson, on the other hand, ended the eliminations with an 11-1 slate, and will face last year's finals antagonist University of the Philippines in the Final Four.
It was a day of upsets for UST sports teams as the Tigresses also took down title contenders DLSU Lady Spikers in straight sets in UAAP women's volleyball. – Rappler.com
