Go Ateneo!

Now it is down with the two best teams in this season—The Ateneo Blue Eagles and the de la Salle Green Archers. September 21, 2008, 4:00PM, the first game for the best of three games of the UAAP Season 71 Finals commenced. The blue people left the big dome victorious with the score of 61-69 in favor of the Blue Eagles. Ateneo scored in the game first and made an early 2-4 point lead (at that range). At the end of the first half, Ateneo, made an 11-point lead. However, while in the second quarter, de la Salle got the chance to take the lead of three but the soaring eagles did not wait to take back its lead until the end of the quarter. Hence, the 11-point lead. The Blue Eagles maintained its strong defense and lead until the final quarter making them win the first game. One more for Ateneo and it wins the finals.

I would also want to commend the performance of Hussaaini who scored 31 points. The great shots of Efren Buenafe and Eric Salamat have really made the team win. Its superstar Chris Tiu was not very visible in the duration of the game. He was part of the first five and the last five but was not really there in the middle quarters. But still he gained the crowds cheer with his wonderful shot during the last quarter.

Ateneo is a very strong team. I am proud of it. Although I am not there and not really an Ateneo de Manila student, my cheers and prayers are for the team.

I am an Atenean, a blue knight who cheers for the blue eagles. Animo Ateneo! Get that BALL and WIN!
