Ateneo grabs lead in men’s football

By

ATENEO grabbed the solo lead in men’s football and it hopes to do the same in women’s volleyball in UAAP action today.

Unbeaten in three games, the Lady Eagles try to stretch their perfect run against a National University side also off to a strong start in women’s volleyball.

Game time is at 3:30 p.m. after University of Santo Tomas and University of the Philippines try to end their two-game skid in the first game at 2 p.m. at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

In men’s football, Ateneo also claimed the top spot with 10 points built on three wins and a draw after the Blue Booters downed Far Eastern University, 1-0, recently at Erechun field in Ateneo.

Michael Mabanag struck in the 37th minute as the Blue Booters held down FEU’s star striker Jesus Melliza, who had scored four goals in three games.

FEU slipped to second with a 2-1-0 win-loss-draw record for six points, while La Salle also forged a tie at 2-2-0 for six points with its latest victim UST.

The Green Booters drubbed the Tigers, 3-1, with David Diamante (60th and 79th minute) and Federico Rabaya (70th minute) delivering the goals.

Defending champion UP (1-1-1, four points) and newcomer National University (0-2-1, one point) settled for a 2-2 draw.

In women’s volleyball, the Lady Eagles hope to follow up on their dominant straight-set triumph over the Tigresses, 25-13, 25-16, 25-17, last Sunday.

Skipper Dzi Gervacio and Alyssa Valdez try to lead the Lady Eagles against the Lady Bulldogs, who are bannered by 6-foot-1 Dindin Santiago and Myla Pablo.

The Lady Bulldogs, who finished near-bottom last season, surprisingly got off to a strong start with a 2-1 record for a share of second with defending champion La Salle and Adamson.

Ara Galang, Wensh Tiu and Mika Reyes teamed up for 33 hits as the Lady Archers downed the Lady Tamaraws, 25-19, 25-16, 25-16, recently.

The Lady Falcons, under new coach Sherwin Meneses, also drubbed the Lady Maroons, 25-12, 25-19, 25-13, behind the trio of Sheila Pineda, Mayette Zapanta and Pau Soriano.
