With the goal of redemption in their minds, last season’s finalist Far Eastern University commenced its new campaign with a bang.
The Lady Tamaraws defeated Ateneo in a 7-0 drubbing in the UAAP Season 82 Women’s Football Tournament, Saturday afternoon at Rizal Memorial Stadium.
Let Dimzon’s wards enjoyed a hot start to the contest as they were able to score three times in roughly 20 minutes.
The Lady Eagles’ defensive frailties were laid bare when Samantha Green found the back of the net at the 8th minute while Joyce Onrubia and Carmela Altiche followed suit with close-range finishes at the 15th and 21st minutes.
“Good result for the start of the season pero siyempre we know already na hindi na ito yung core ng Ateneo but still ang titignan pa rin natin ang mga strong teams like La Salle, UST and UP,” said Dimzon.
It was more of the same in the second half.
Jonela Albino continued the rout with a fine volley at the 52nd minute with Onrubia secured her brace three minutes later. Substitute striker Dionesa Tolentin then scored two goals of her own at the 57th and 90+1 minutes.
The result gives FEU three points and a goal difference of +7, which enables them to lead the standings after this weekend. On the other hand, coach Bob Manlulu’s squad is at the bottom of the league table.
“Although maganda ang nilaro namin, ang mahirap lang kasi sobrang init so hindi mo mabasa kung ano pa ang kayang ilabas ng players. Ayun ang nagiging concern namin,” added Dimzon.
