FEU Booters complete first round sweep

By Anton Roxas Posted Dec 20th 2013

FEU notched its sixth straight victory of the season to complete a sweep of the first round.

Far Eastern University continued its dominance in the UAAP Season 76 men’s football tournament after defeating De La Salle University, 3-1, at the FEU-Diliman campus on Friday.

Jhan-jhan Melliza immediately broke the ice by scoring a goal in the 6th minute of the match off an assist from Chy Villasenor. It was the fifth goal of the season for Melliza.

Villasenor followed up on his brilliant pass to Melliza by scoring consecutive goals of his own in the 36th and 38th minute of the match.

But, Gelo Diamante struck in the 40th minute of the match to put the Green Booters on the board before halftime.

That would be the final goal of the match as FEU completed a first round sweep of their six assignments with a maximum 18 points while DLSU saw its three-game win streak extinguished and remained in a tie for third place with the University of the Philippines with three wins and three losses for 9 points, behind second place University of the east, which finshed with three wins, a draw and two losses for 10 points.
