The De La Salle University Lady Archers slid to a 2-9 win-loss record after a 60-67 loss to the Adamson Lady Falcons, Sunday, at the MOA Arena.

The Lady Archers looked lost in the second quarter when the San Marcelino-based squad was able to extend their lead to eight to finish the half, 34-26.
After halftime, the ladies from Taft dug deep to cut the Lady Falcons’ lead down to five, entering the final quarter, 51-46.
