UAAP 81 Football: UE takes down DLSU for share of top spot
Make it back-to-back wins for University of the East after taking down DLSU in the UAAP Season 81 Men's Football Tournament.

University of the East recorded another big win in their pursuit to crack into the Final Four, taking down De La Salle University, 1-0, in the UAAP Season 81 Men's Football Tournament, Thursday afternoon at the FEU Diliman Football Field in Quezon City. 

Both sides had momentum coming into the match following respective wins, with UE stunning Ateneo and DLSU shooting down Adamson. 

After a tightly-contested first half that saw neither side manage a goal, it was UE that went ahead, with Mark Lerion completing a fantastic finish off a DLSU deflection in the 51st minute. 

The lone goal proved to be the difference, as DLSU could not muster an equalizer and UE held on for the crucial victory. 

With the win, UE improved to two wins and one loss for six points, tied with UST at the top of the standings. 

DLSU meanwhile drops to one win and two losses for three points.
