MANILA, Philippines - La Salle Green Hills shoots for a double championship against National U and Ateneo-A today in the Energen Mini-Youth Ball Metro Invitationals at the LSGH gym.

Also unbeaten in the Mini division (9-11 age group), the Junior Archers go all-out to topple defending champion Ateneo-A in the first finals match at 8:30 a.m.

The Junior Archers enjoy twice-to-beat edges in both finals after completing a pair of 7-0 sweeps.

But the Blue Eaglets and the Bullpups, both ranked third, hope to foil the Junior Archers after prevailing in the thrilling stepladder semifinals where they both stunned the No. 2 seeds.
