University of Santo Tomas bounced back by beating Ateneo, 2-1, Saturday.
Reigning champions De La Salle University opened their title defense with a resounding 3-1 win over University of the Philippines, Saturday at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.
The returning Shannon Arthur proved to be the difference-maker for the Lady Archers, as she scored two second half goals to put distance between DLSU and UP.
The Lady Maroons were actually the first ones to get on the board, courtesy of Red Sajonia, but the defending champions responded and equalized before the end of the first half.
The Lady Archers begin the season with a win for the maximum three points, while UP drops to a win and a draw in two matches for three points.
The result wasn’t as favorable for the Ateneo Lady Eagles, as they absorbed a 1-2 loss at the hands of the University of Santo Tomas Lady Tigresses.
Tessa Bernardo gave the Lady Eagles the advantage early in the second half, but it wouldn’t last long as Shela Cadag found the equalizer for the Lady Tigresses.
Charisa Lemoran scored the go-ahead goal in the 65th minute to give UST the lead and ultimately the win.
UST improves to a win and a loss for three points in Season 80, same goes for Ateneo, who suffer their first loss after winning on opening day.
