MANILA, Philippines—Arellano University remained the only unscathed squad in the NCAA season 88 men’s football round of four after clipping San beda, 1-0, Friday in the ASCOM field in Taguig.

Alvin Obero netted a goal in the 29th minute and it was just enough cushion for the Chiefs to defeat the reigning title holder for their second victory.

Arellano has also kept a clean sheet thus far, defeating Lyceum, 2-0, last Tuesday to get to the inside track in the race to the finals.

The Pirates, meanwhile, defeated still winless Emilio Aguinaldo College, 1-0, in the other semifinals match up.

Lyceum’s Nino Azanes stunned the Generals with a goal in the 16th minute, also keeping their bid to a finals spot alive.

Both Arellano and San Beda have one victory and one setback so far in the final four.
