UP drew with DLSU, 1-1, while Ateneo blasted UE, 4-1, as UAAP 77 men's football kicked off on Saturday
Last season's runner-up University of the Philippines settled for a draw against De La Salle University even as Ateneo de Manila University got off to a flying start as the UAAP 77 men's football tournament kicked off at the Moro Lorenzo Football Field inside the Ateneo campus on Saturday.
UP's star striker Jinggoy Valmayor scored the opening goal in the 35th minute for the Maroon Booters, but the DLSU managed to equalize on Geo Diamante's goal nine minutes into the second half as the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
In the first match, Ateneo demolished UE, 4-1.
Jeremiah Rocha and Carlo Liay converted the opening goals for Ateneo in first half while Julian Roads and Jin Montemayor added two more for the Blue Booters before Khyndale Malonzo drew a goal back for UE in the closing minutes.
