Cabuyao, RTU rap rivals in softball opener

Cabuyao City and Rizal Technological University dominated their respective rivals at the start of the National 19-and-under men’s Softball Championship at the Sto. Niño Softball Field in Marikina City yesterday.

RTU outclassed Binangonan, 18-3, while Cabuyao City trounced La Salle Antipolo, 13-5, to serve notice of their respective title drive in the tournament presented by Cebuana Lhuillier and sanctioned by the Amateur Softball Association of the Philippines (ASAPHIL).

Others vying in the six-day softball championship are Pasig, San Rafael-Bulacan, and Agoncillo-Batangas.

“This is an avenue where the Filipino youth can showcase their excellence in sports. The huge leaps we’ve made in softball have propelled us to becoming a force to reckon with in the international scene,” said ASAPHIL president and Cebuana Lhuillier president and CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier.

RTU, meanwhile, gears up for a busy second day as it plays back-to-back games against La Salle Antipolo and Agoncillo-Batangas, while San Rafael-Bulacan squares off with Binangonan, and Pasig clashing with Agoncillo-Batangas and Binangonan in successive matches.
