Jumo twins bless Adamson with breakthrough UAAP win

The Jumo twins connected for a goal as Adamson got its first UAAP win since the school's football program was revived.
What looked like another scoreless draw between the league's bottom two teams turned out to be a thriller in the end.
Adamson University outlasted University of the East in the final minutes to take a 1-0 victory in the UAAP Season 78 men's football tournament at the Moro Lorenzo field in Ateneo Thursday.
The Falcons got their first win ever since reviving the school's football program and their first three points this season.
It was a brotherly connection that did the trick for the Soaring Falcons as Bless Brian II Jumo fed his brother Bless Brian I Jumo for the winning goal at the 88th minute.
Adamson kept the Warriors stuck at one point for the season in the process.
After a goalless first half, the game went quietly into the second half before the Jumo brothers provided the fireworks.
Adamson bounced back after a 0-4 drubbing at the hands of Ateneo last week.
The Falcons now have the chance to try and mobe up the standings just before the first round ends as they take on the Fighting Maroons, winners of their second straight earlier today, on Sunday.
