San Beda, which went unbeaten in nine matches, doubled its lead in the 69th minute on a penalty kick off a costly foul by Arellano keeper Mark Baldo to cap its victory.

 

The Chiefs couldn’t do much with the Red Booters’ stifiling defense. San Beda also came out aggressive that kept Arellano on its heels.

 

With another crown in hand, San Beda tied former NCAA member La Salle for the most number of football titles in the seniors division with 21.

 

Meanwhile, Lyceum edged College of St. Benilde, 1-0, to finish in third place. The Pirates’ finish is their highest since joining the league in 2011.
