If someone wants to be part of your life, they will make an effort to be in it. (natamaan ako sa quote. haha =])

They are now back on top, where they really belong. After a very bumpy elimination round and tough ladder semi-finals round, DLSU Green Archers finally grabbed the championship crown after beating the crowd favorite, UE Red Warriors in two games consecutively. It was really a good game, a classic series indeed.

After being suspended for one year, they are back with a vengeance. When the UAAP season started, everyone was expecting that the Warriors will win the crown because of their oh-so complete and tough roster, since no one graduated. The comeback of the Archers brought the loudest noise to the league because the rivalry between the Blue and Green will arise again. And they didn’t disappoint us.

They were beaten twice in the elimination by the Blue Eagles yet they showed the real heart of an archer by beating the Eagles in a must-win game of the season wherein they were able to get the twice-to-beat advantage and even beat the ADMU for the finals berth.

UE was the favorite team, the one being seen that will emerge as champs for this season. They had beaten the Archers twice in the eliminations and they were set to meet in the Finals. Game 1 was a must-see game. Green and Red dominated the Big Dome, as if it was Christmas already. No one expected the victory of the Archers yet they had shown what a champion team really means.

Congrats to the DLSU Green Archers for winning this season’s crown. They indeed deserved it. They had their sweetest comeback. This is their year and everyone should not be bitter about that.
