    ADAMSON University exerted just enough effort in scoring its second victory in as many outings, an 11-3, rout of La Salle on Monday in the UAAP Women’s Softball Championship at the 84-year-old Rizal Memorial Stadium.

    The Lady Falcons, seeking an eighth straight title, needed only five innings to easily dispose of a fighting but outclassed Lady Archers starting off the annihilation with a four-run attack in the opening frame highlighted by two-run home run.

    Coach Ana Santiago’s girls completed the win with a solo round-tripper.

    The Lady Falcons, who only two days had to bleed to turn back National University, 2-1, actually decided the outcome right after second base girl and lead-off batter Riezl Calumbres took first base on a single, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by leftfielder Leslie Benabaye and rushed home on two-base hit by third base girl Mary Nicole Padasas.

    Delyrose Covarrubias then singled home Padasas before crossing the plate herself on rightfielder Jenette Rusia’s double.

    Adamson put two more runs on the scoreboard on a double and a single, for what proved an insurmountable 6-0 spread, and 9-1 with another mighty three-marker surge in the fourth.

    A base-cleaning blast by centerfielder Krisha Cantor in the fifth halted the contest on the seven-run margin rule gifting Santiago her 16th triumph since University of Santo Tomas ended her 73 winning runs last year.

    Last year’s runner-up Growling Tigresses banked on a three-run binge in the bottom fifth to beat the University of the Philippines, 4-3, for their second consecutive win.

    The Tigresses led 4-1 but had that advantage nearly wiped out, before a crucial blunder the Lady Maroons’ defense in the seventh allowed UST to save the win.

    Adamson and UST are tied at the top of the seven-team standing with identical 2-0 cards. UP dropped to third with 2-1 win-loss slate.
