DLSU Green Booters succumb to Ateneo, suffer first lost of the season
The De La Salle University Green Booters bow to Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles, 2-1, in the UAAP Season 80 Men’s Football Tournament at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium, earlier today.
La Salle suffered their first defeat after opening the season with a 2-0 record.
The first half was uneventful for the two parties. Both the La Salle and Ateneo clad men showed a slow pace with minimal attempts that resulted to a 0-0 tie.
Things turned around as Jarvey Gayoso blasted a goal against four DLSU defenders early in the second half in the 49th minute mark to gain a 1-0 lead.
Then, Gayoso doubled the edge of Ateneo in the 66th minute mark.
When almost all hope was lost for the Green Booters, Mauro Acot kept the Green side alive with a goal for in the 83rd minute mark.
However, it was all too late for a DLSU comeback as time expired.
