NU stays atop the UAAP Men's Football standings following draw with defending champions FEU

A second half Paolo Salenga conversion helped the NU Bulldogs draw the defending champions 2-2, Thursday afternoon at the Moro Lorenzo Field in Ateneo to keep their spot atop the UAAP Season 78 Men's Foootball tournament. 

Chima Uzoka scored early for the Bulldogs, but Eric Giganto and Rico Andes gave the defending champs a 2-1 lead heading into the break. 

Undermanned after Uzoka was thrown out for his second yellow card in the match, Salenga played the hero as he scored on a long ball to keep the Bulldogs away from the loss column. 

In the earlier match, De La Salle University also came back down from an early deficit to draw with the UST Tigers, 1-1. 

John De Castro found the back of the net early for the Tigers, but Jose Montelibano provided the equalizer just before halftime. 

The physical second half saw both squads unable to break the stalemate, and the draw stood until full time.
