MANILA, Philippines -- Adamson University will shoot for a second-straight automatic appearance in the title round when it takes on De La Salle University in the 9 a.m. on Wednesday at the close of the elimination round of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 76 softball tournament at the Rizal Memorial Diamond.

The Lady Falcons (11-0) are three wins away from snatching their second “four-peat.” They previously achieved the rare feat from Season 60 (1997-98) to 63 (2000-01) and from Season 66 (2003-04) to 69 (2006-07).

In the other games, University of Santo Tomas (UST) takes on University of the Philippines (UP) at 11 a.m., while National University (NU) clashes with University of the East (UE) at 1 p.m.

A win by the Lady Bulldogs (8-3) or a loss by the Golden Tigresses (7-4) will give NU the second seed in the Final Four. UE (5-6), on the other hand, has secured the last seat in the semifinals.
