Meanwhile, Far Eastern University’s men’s team and Ateneo’s women’s squad beat their respective foes at the start of football competitions at Ateneo’s Erenchun Field.

The Tamaraws ripped the La Salle Green booters, 3-0, with Jesus Meliza scoring twice before Noli Chaves added another.

In the women’s match, the Lady Eagles blanked the UP Lady Maroons, 2-0, behind two late goals by Anne Theresa Martin.

In the first men’s match, Ateneo and UE played to a scoreless draw.
