A very late goal from Jekar Sullano proved to be the difference as National University defeated De La Salle University, 1-0, in UAAP Season 80 Men's Football action, Saturday afternoon at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium. 

While it was DLSU who pushed the action, getting most of the attempts on goal, their inability to finish would come back to haunt them. 

Three minutes into extra time, Sullano provided the back-breaker, scoring with a minute left to play to put NU ahead, 1-0. 

With the win, NU improves to three wins, a draw, and three losses for ten points to end the first round of action. 

DLSU on the other hand, closes the first round on a downward spiral as they lose their third straight match and fall to three wins and four losses for nine points.
