Defending champions DLSU finish the first round of the UAAP Season 80 women's football tournament on top of the standings

De La Salle nosed out fierce rival Ateneo, 1-0, to finish the first round on top of the table in the UAAP Season 80 women's football tournament Saturday at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

Alexi Arrieta nailed the spot kick in the 38th minute which turned out to be the Lady Archers' winning moment. 

De La Salle is now level with University of Santo Tomas at nine points, but the defending champions grabbed the top spot by virtue of better goal difference.

Earlier, Aloha Bejic netted a brace Far Eastern University prevailed over University of the Philippines, 2-1 to claim its second win.

The Lady Tamaraws, who moved up at seven points, lost coach Let Dimzon who was sent off in the 73rd minute but was still able to held on with the victory.

Cristina Delos Reyes converted the 12th minute penalty to open the scoring for the Lady Maroons.

Bejic then struck in first-half stoppage time before giving FEU the lead with a 54th minute goal.

With four points, the Lady Eagles dropped to fourth spot, while the Lady Maroons remained without a point in last place.
