MANILA, Philippines — Far Eastern University blew out National University 7-0 Wednesday to end the year on a high note in the 75th UAAP men’s football competition at the Ateneo campus.
The Tamaraw booters got into scoring early as Jess Melliza opened the floodgates with a goal in only the first three minute of action.
Melliza added another goal in the second half before FEU capped the domination over NU with its final goal in the 78th minute.
Meanwhile, University of the Philippines and La Salle also blanked their respective foes with an identical 2-0 triumph earlier.
UP edged University of Santo Tomas behind goals from Daniel Gadia and Gabriel Mendoza while La Salle kept University of the East winless in the tournament.
A goal from Charles Uy deep into injury time put the outcome beyond doubt as the La Salle booters notched its third win.
