A taste of things to come: Falcons hold off Bulldogs, register first win

Date Posted: Jul 23, 2010 at 02:29:10 AM


The Adamson University Soaring Falcons proved that its end-game implosions are a thing of the past when it survived a furious late game rally to beat the much-improved National University Bulldogs 60-54 in their opening game at the Araneta Coliseum last July 11.

 

Second-year sensation Eric Camson provided clutch points down the stretch to match his career high of 13 points and nabbed ten rebounds to help the Falcons post its first opening game win in five years. The last time the Falcons won an opening game was in 2005 against, ironically, the Bulldogs.

 

Adamson Coach Leo Austria was jubilant to snap a five-year opening day losing streak and looks to use the momentum his team gained to end its winless record against the Ateneo Blue Eagles, which has hounded the San Marcelino-based ballers since 1997. “The way we ended our losing skid will serve as a big motivation for our next game against Ateneo,” said Coach Austria in a press interview.

 

The Bulldogs, for its part, leaned on the hot shooting of Kokoy Hermosisima and Mel Baloran who chipped in 19 and 18 points, respectively.

 

“Both teams were having first-game jitters, but we were able to get our confidence going at the start of the second half,” added Coach Austria.

 

Veteran big man Jan Colina contributed 11 points for the Falcons, but left late in the game because of an injured foot. Janus Lozada was also carried out of the game in a stretcher after suddenly cramping during the second half.

 

Meanwhile, over at the FilOil Arena in San Juan, the Lady Falcons overpowered the hapless De La Salle Lady Archers to win in convincing fashion, 84-53, in their own opening game. Analyn Almasan spearheaded the attack with 22 points in 27 minutes. She also grabbed 12 caroms and dished off two assists to lead the Lady Falcons to their first win in the tournament.
