UAAP Season 81: UST jins continue dominance
University of Sto. Tomas kept its perfect record in the UAAP Season 81 men's and women's taekwondo.

University of Sto. Tomas' men's and women's teams stayed perfect as the UAAP Season 81 taekwondo tournament reached the halfway mark Thursday at the Blue Eagle Gym.       

The Growling Tigers were actually tied with University of the Philippines at 2-0 after Day 1 of action Wednesday, but the Fighting Maroons bowed to University of the East, 3-4, in the first bout of Day 2, leaving the España-based jins as the only undefeated team.       

The Tigresses extended their unbeaten run to three following a 4-3 conquest of De La Salle.       

National University joined UST on top at 3-0 as the reigning women's champions overpowered Far Eastern University, 7-0.       

UP moved up to 3-1 record for second place in the men's division with a 4-3 squeaker over Ateneo.

The back-to-back title-seeking Bulldogs scored a 6-1 victory of the Red Warriors, tying their victims in third place at 2-1.       

After opening the season with back-to-back losses, the Lady Eagles jumped to third place at 2-2 after beating the Lady Tamaraws (7-0) and the Lady Warriors (4-3).     

The Lady Maroons, last season's third placers, are running fourth at 1-1.

Final day of action starts at 9:00 a.m. Friday
