Unheralded Polytechnic University of the Philippines downed Central Luzon State University, 11-4, in regulation six-inning contest yesterday in a battle of two State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association campaigners and found itself in the unfamiliar top spot in Group B yesterday in the Cebuana Lhuillier National Intercollegiate Women’s Softball Championship at the Rosario Sports Complex in Pasig City.

A four-run, four-hit attack right at the bottom of the first inning was all the Sta. Mesa-based batters needed in scoring their third straight victory to remain the only unbeaten side in the six-team Group B field that includes UAAP campaigner University of the East, Santo Tomas, Ateneo and National University.

The PUP girls’ first two wins came at the expense of UAAP titlists Lady Warriors, whom they beat, 5-4, in eight innings, and the Lady Eagles, whom they blanked, 6-0, in their doubleheader Wednesday.

Coach Opreng dela Cruz’s girls need to win one of their last two outings to make it into the crossover semifinal round. They battle the Growling Tigresses in one of another heavy five-game schedule today then the Lady Bulldogs in the final day of eliminations saturday.
