PAF, Adamson post shutout wins

Fancied Air Force and Adamson scored shutout victories over their respective rivals to serve notice of their bids in the Cebuana Lhuillier-ASAPHIL Summer Grand Slam National Open Fast Pitch softball tournament at the Bonifacio and St. Francis fields in Cabuyao City late Sunday.

The Air Force batters kicked off their title-retention drive with an 11-0 rout of the Cebu City side in the Open men’s division while the Falcons, the reigning UAAP champions, proved too much for the Manila City Team I squad, 10-0, in women’s play of the tournament presented by Cebuana Lhuillier and the Amateur Softball Association of the Philippines (ASAPHIL).

Ateneo matched AdU’s emphatic start with a 7-0 romp over Cabiao, Nueva Ecija while Dasmariñas, Cavite smothered Manila City Team 2, 19-0, in the 11th season of the tournament, also held as part of selection process for the future national team.

“As we continue to build the path towards the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, we at ASAPHIL are relentless in our goal to find and train local softball stars, and this tournament serves that purpose,” said ASAPHIL and Cebuana Lhuiller president Jean Henri Lhuillier.
