The Soaring Falcons registered their second straight victory in the 38th Kadayawan Festival Invitational Basketball League as they dump the College of Saint Benilde Blazers, 68-57, this August 4 at the University of Southeastern Philippines Gymnasium and Cultural Center. 

It was a back-and-forth affair, with Adamson pacing the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) runners-up and settling for a 31-all deadlock at the half.  

The San Marcelino team then launched a 14 – 2 run late in the third canto built on several three-point hits to sway the momentum to their favor. Adamson never let go of the gas pedal up to the final buzzer despite. 

Cedrick Manzano led the Falcons with 14 points and seven rebounds.  

Adamson will next face De La Salle University this August 5 at the same venue for a seat in the tournament’s finals.
