FEU blanks La Salle anew, nabs UAAP women’s football title
MANILA, Philippines — Far Eastern University swept its finals series with La Salle to nab the UAAP season 75 women’s football title on Sunday.
The Lady Tamaraws blanked the Lady Archers anew, 2-0, in the clincher at the Moro Lorenzo Football Field in Ateneo Campus after a 5-0 blasting in game one last Thursday.
Barbie Sobredo, who was fittingly named the tournament MVP, found the back of the net on a penalty kick in the first half before Loreta Ladero doubled the lead in the 60th minute.
Sobredo also finished as the best striker, while Ladero, once again, the best midfielder of the season.
It was the second straight year that La Salle missed the mark in the title round, losing to University of Santo Tomas last season.
