Blu Girls rebound in Asian softball meet

The Philippine Blu Girls rebounded from their opening day setback to world titlist Japan, trouncing the Hong Kong and South Korea sides to get back into the thick of things in the 11th Asian Women’s Softball Championship in Taichung City, Taiwan.

The Pinay batters shut down the HK girls, 18-0, then rallied past the South Koreans, 6-4, to stay in the semifinal hunt in the event serving as the 2018 Asian Games qualifier and the World Championships.

“The girls showed great determination and strong character in bouncing back from a tough loss against Japan. They’re really showing how prepared they are and how they really want to win in this tournament. This augurs well for our bid to qualify in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics,” said Amateur Softball Association of the Philippines (ASAPHIL) president Jean Henri Lhuillier.
