By |

MANILA, Philippines — Ateneo and Far Eastern University battled to a 1-1 draw on Thursday but the Blue Eagles kept the top spot in the UAAP season 75 men’s football tournament.

Midfielder Carlo Liay scored on a header to equalize in the 89th minute, which kept the Blue Eagles undefeated in the tournament with seven wins and three draws for 24 points.

Eric Giganto put FEU in the scoreboard early with a goal in the 12th minute, but yielded a last minute goal and failed to pounce on the chance to wrest the number one seeding.

The Tamaraw booters, though, kept their hold of the second spot with 22 points on seven wins, two setbacks and a draw.

Meanwhile, La Salle defeated National University, 2-0, to secure third place in the other game at the football fields inside the Ateneo campus.

Don Rabaya scored both goals for the Green Archers, who improved to 21 points on seven wins and three losses.

The Bulldogs, on their first shot at men’s football, absorbed their eight setback with two losses and a draw for seven points.
