Ateneo eyes first round sweep
(Moro Lorenzo Field)
2:00 p.m. – UST vs NU (Men)
4:00 p.m. – ADMU vs FEU (Men)
Ateneo shoots for a first round sweep of the UAAP Season 79 men’s football tournament against Far Eastern University, Thursday at the Moro Lorenzo Field.
However, the Blue Eagles will go up against the Tamaraws at 4:00 p.m. without the league’s leading goal scorer Jarvey Gayoso, who is suspended for accumutating two yellow cards this season.
In an equally exciting encounter at 2:00 p.m., University of Santo Tomas faces National University. Both teams are tied in fourth place.
Ateneo has a maximum of 18 points, five clear off joint second placers University of the Philippines and FEU, thanks to the impressive performances the young turks led by Gayoso, who has 5 goals, rookies Sam Lim and Enzo Ceniza.
Lim and Ceniza each have three goals this season.
The Tamaraws, meanwhile, hope to bring back their old defensive form against the Eagles.
The FEU goalies collected five straight wins, but yielded a goal for the first time this season and dragged to a 1-1 draw with University of the East last Sunday. (Axel Roman)
