Make it five straight wins for the defending champions.
Nicolas Ferrer scored a brace in the first half, while Mark Arranguez put the finishing touch as defending champions Far Eastern University downed Adamson, 3-0, Thursday afternoon at the Moro Lorenzo Football Field in Ateneo.
The Tams dominated the action in the first half, basically stifling the Falcons and did not allow them to get a shot off, while also pushing the pace on offense.
The opening goal came fifteen minutes in, when Ferrer blasted the ball straight into the back of the net.
In the 29th minute, Ferrer would strike again, giving the defending champions a comfortable 2-0 lead at the half.
The Falcons were a little more competitive in the second half, as they managed to control possession and got a couple of shots off as well.
Still, it was the Diliman-based squad that pushed the pace, and rookie Arranguez put the final touch to the Tamaraws win, scoring a minute into injury time.
While the Tams won via a comfortable margin, skipper Eric Giganto felt that they could have won by more.
“Yung finishing touches namin sa goal, hindi pumapasok. Siguro unlucky, yun lang. Pero at least we scored three goals.”
The Tamaraws overtake UST for first place with 20 points on six wins, two draws, and two losses, while Adamson remains at sixth place with three points on one win and nine losses.
