The Philippine Blu Girls finally got their act together and barged into the win column with a 2-1 victory over Peru on Saturday in the USA Softball International Cup at the South Commons Softball Complex in Columbus, Georgia, USA.
“I never doubted that a win will be coming. That close victory over Peru showed that the Blu Girls have been learning from their previous losses and are applying what they have learned. The need now is for the girls to be more consistent as we prepare for the qualifying tournament for the 2020 Olympics,” said Jean Henri Lhuillier, ASAPHIL President and President/CEO of Cebuana Lhuillier, which for a long time has been supporting softball in the country.
The CebuanaLhuillier-backed Blu Girls drew first blood when AngelieUrsabia tripled on a 1-0 count in the first inning to score the game’s first run.
Peru, however, answered with a run in the bottom of the first inning to knot the count at 1-all.
