Polytechnic University of the Philippines outclassed Central Luzon State University, 11-4, to stay on top in Group B elims of the Cebuana Lhuillier National Intercollegiate Softball Championship at the Rosario Sports Complex in Pasig City. Because of the seven-run mercy rule, the game was halted after six innings thus paving the way for PUP’s third straight win in the six-team Group B elims. PUP settled the issue right in the first inning – thanks to a four-run, four-hit attack. The win was a big follow-up to PUP’s earlier wins over UAAP’s University of the East, 5-4, and Ateneo, 6-0. Rizal Technological University, another SCUAA team participating in the 12-team tournament, blanked Bulacan State University, 10-0, to improve its Group A record to 3-1.
