The De La Salle Green Archers put on an offensive clinic last Saturday night at the Moro Lorenzo Football Field in Ateneo de Manila as they beat the UE Red Warriors 5-1.

Gelo Diamante also got into the scoring spree, converting on a follow up goal just a minute later. The younger Diamante brother then scored his second consecutive goal, putting in a header from a Montelibano cross to make it 4-1 lead for De La Salle going into the half.

The green and white squad sealed the deal in the 80th minute with a free kick from Nathan Alquiros, scoring the final goal of the game for a 5-1 tally.

De La Salle scores their second win of the season along with two draws, good for eight points. UE drops to one win and three losses, good for three points.

Sharmine Siatong opened things up for Far Eastern U, scoring in the 36th minute, but UST got an equalizer courtesy of Daryll Ann Mendoza. Alina Rose Araneta connected on a 62nd minute goal, to put the Lady Tams up 2-1.
