UE scores their first point of the season after keeing UST at bay with a scoreless draw
University of the East earned their first point of the young UAAP Season 78 Men's Football season, holding University of Santo Tomas to a scoreless draw, Sunday evening at the McKinley Hill Stadium.
UST came into Sunday's match with a ton of momentum following their season-opening win against Adamson last Tuesday, but couldn't carry it over against the Red Warriors.
Late in the first half, the Tigers' fortune seemed to take a turn for the worse, as senior leader Ronald Batisla-ong was called for a red card due to a bad foul.
Still, the Tigers managed to hold strong and not let the Red Warriors knock in any conversions.
The stalemate continued up until the final whistle, making nil-nil draw official.
UE saves themselves from joining Ateneo and Adamson in the bottom of the standings by picking up the point. They join University of the Philippines with one draw and one loss for a point each.
UST on the other hand, missed out on joining National University and De La Salle University at the top of the mountain. Instead, they join defending champions FEU in the middle of the pack with one win and one draw for four points.
