Giganto bags hat trick as FEU Booters escape UST in 11-goal shootout

Powered by a hat trick from Eric Giganto, last yearís champions the Far Eastern University Tamaraws opened their title defense in fearsome fashion, trouncing the University of Santo Tomas Golden Booters, 7-4, Sunday afternoon at the FEU-FERN football field.

The Tamarawsí first goal came around the 11th minute, after Giganto managed to send one flying past the UST keeper, after rebounding a missed penalty kick from teammate Arnel Amita to put the defending champs up by one. Another goal came for the Tamaraws at around the 15th minute, after Michael Menzi managed to connect with a header to push the score to 2-0. A goal from Amita at around the 29th minute put the Tamaraws up by 3-0 with only less than half an hour of play.

Jean Mari Clarino had the chance to finally get things going for the booters in EspaŮa at around the 23rd minute, after Marvin Bricenio found him for the header, but the ball sailed past the net. Clarino eventually managed to get it started for UST, finally hitting the net during a penalty kick. But the Tamaraws proved hungry for another goal, after Amita sent one into the net after receiving the assist from Giganto, putting the Tamaraws up by three, 4-1, just as the 45th minute expired.

Another goal from Giganto came in the 50th minute, as he found himself unchecked at the corner beyond the penalty box to hit his second goal. Up 5-1, the Tamaraws continued going all out on the attack, with the UST keeper struggling to hold the fort.

Things suddenly looked bright for the Golden Booters at the 70 minute mark, after Clarino managed to score on the penalty kick to push the score to 5-2. Five minutes later, Steven Anotado managed to hit one from beyond the penalty box to trim the score to 5-3, giving UST a lease on life.

But FEUís Jesus Joaquin Melliza, last seasonís best midfielder immediately stifled the UST surge, sinking one at the other end after finding himself one-on-one with the UST keeper, John Rey Catalino to push FEU up 6-3.

USTís Anotado however was not sullied, getting past the FEU defense to bag his second goal at around the 79th minute, pushing the score to 6-4.

Both squads had several attempts in the remaining minutes, but none yielded goals. The score still stood at 6-4 entering injury time.

Amita was the one who put the icing on the cake for the Tamaraws, nailing one last goal shortly before the end of injury time.

Giganto boosts goal tally to lift FEU over pesky UE

The reigning champions produced abundant goalscoring opportunities but only an Eric Giganto touch just outside the six-yard box prevented FEU from dropping two points against the UE Red Warriors following a hard-fought 1-0 win at the FEU Diliman Football Field earlier this afternoon.

Lendon Clores led the UE defense against an aggressive FEU frontline who sought to sustain the free-flowing attack that resulted in a massive 7-4 win against UST last Sunday. Usual suspects Giganto and Jesus Melliza blew a string of good chances that would have brought them ahead much earlier. Clores exhibited alert goalkeeping by routinely catching long distance shots from the home side.

Twenty-nine minutes after kickoff, FEU’s Val Jurao launched a powerful shot from around 30 yards out only for the ball to bounce off against the crossbar. Within the next 10 minutes, the Tamaraws had a couple of identical plays that tested Clores. In the 37th minute, Arnel Amita tried his luck from long range but Clores stopped it before finally collecting the ball to prevent Audie Menzi from an easy rebound. A couple of minutes after, it was Paolo Bugas and Melliza’s turn to unsuccessfully connect past the UE goalkeeper. Both teams entered halftime the way they began.

After being virtually tamed in the first half, the Warriors created the first chance through Ariel Mallen who just struck wide to the right in the 52nd minute. It was the lone UE shot inside the first 15 minutes of the second half. Amita and Menzi fired wide a few moments after the Reds filed their first shot of the match, but it wasn’t to be a barren day for FEU.

Nicolas Ferrer swung a cross from the left flank which fell into the path of the rampaging Giganto. Clores did his best to keep the tournament’s current top scorer from adding to his tally, but the prolific striker nabbed his fourth of UAAP Season 77 by outpacing the UE goalkeeper to slot the ball into the back of the net in the 56th minute.

FEU attempted to lengthen their advantage but the UE defense clung on to prevent a thrashing from happening. The Tamaraws’ best chance in doubling the lead came in the 76th minute. Reymart Cubon smashed a shot but was rejected by the unwavering Clores.

UE may not have conceded further but they had a couple of worrying events down the wire. Clores was cluttered by Patrick Rallos who in exchange went into the referee’s books. Rhoyet Sola also had his name written twice by referee Christian PacaŮa which merited a red card that saw the Red Warriors down to 10 men.

The last chance of the game fell to Mallen whose free kick was comfortably gathered by Ray Joyel. Seconds after, the full time whistle sounded to conclude another positive result for FEU. The Tamaraws go on top with six points out of the possible six while the Red Warriors remain at the bottom of the table with two losses to open their UAAP season.

FEU kisses winning streak goodbye with draw versus La Salle

The FEU Tamaraws did not win for the first time in the UAAP Season 77 men’s football tournament today at the Moro Lorenzo Football Field in Quezon City after they were held to a 1-1 draw against perennial favorites DLSU.

Plenty of the best chances came early in the game. In the 3rd minute, Val Jurao skied his attempt narrowly over the bar. Christian Zubiri had the game’s first shot on target which was easily collected by Rey Joyel. Jose Montelibano had a couple of openings but elected to test his luck from long range while his second opportunity, in which he looked to pick out a teammate with a decisive pass, was halted by the alert Joyel.

FEU had its fair share of chances in the game’s first 25 minutes. Jesus Melliza’s free kick soared above the goal and Paeng de Guzman had to beat Eric Giganto for the ball to be cleared. Michael Menzi’s header was just inches wide of ending up in the back of the net. La Salle’s Zubiri also saw his shot saved by Joyel before the score underwent its first change.

Nicolas Ferrer put his team in front with a clinical strike that pierced through the DLSU defense in the 26th minute. The Tamaraws held the only lead of the game, which unfortunately for them, lasted for just five minutes. Four minutes after FEU took the lead, Nathan Alquiros delivered a nifty through ball to the rushing Zubiri who broke free from his defender. The rookie forward was in a good position to score against Joyel who gave away a penalty with a foul on Zubiri inside the box. Designated penalty taker Alquiros converted by sending Joyel the wrong way to restore parity in the game.

La Salle had more of the ball in the second half but FEU was equally dangerous whenever they obtained possession. The best opportunities to score for both teams came after the hour mark. Sixteen minutes after the restart, FEU’s triumvirate of Paolo Bugas, Melliza and Giganto almost connected for a breakthrough goal had it not been for a decisive intervention by the La Salle back line. As for La Salle, newcomer Zubiri almost capped his first start in the league with a winning goal. The young forward broke free of Joshua Mulero but blasted his shot from close distance way above the target 21 minutes before end of the 90.

With the result, La Salle moves up to second place with five points, just two behind the Tamaraws who remain in pole position.

First half goal powers UP to victory over defending champs FEU

Powered by a first half goal from Marie Huff and the lightning-quick reflexes of goalkeeper AJ Javier, the University of the Philippines Women’s football team escaped a flurry of late strikes from their opponents to take the 1-0 victory over rivals defending champions Far Eastern University, Sunday afternoon at the FEU-FERN football field in Quezon City.

FEU’s Jean Bridgette Kadil had the chance to draw first blood at the 13th minute, getting hold of the inside pass to fire one on the keeper point-blank, but the ball was swatted away by UP goalie Javier, the first of many spectacular blocks throughout the fixture. Another chance at getting their first goal came in the 27th minute, after Jinky Sales managed to get into position to strike one from just inside the penalty box, but the ball would sail past the net.

UP’s first great attempt would come at 34th minute, after Kali Huff managed to convert a free kick from just beyond the penalty box into a powerful strike that almost went past FEU goalie Sheramae Ramos, but the ball was blocked off by a header from FEU defender Hannah Faith Pacheco.

It was Marie Huff who drew first blood at the 42nd minute, catching the volley from her sister Kali and heading the ball into the net to bag one for the Lady Maroons.

FEU’s Barbie Ann Sobredo had the chance to equalize just as the 45th minute came along, escaping the UP defense to get one-on-one with the UP goalie, but had the ball swept from her feet before she could pull-up for the kick. The first half would end with UP still on top by 1-0.

The early second half saw the Lady Tamaraws shift their focus on their counterattack, and at 54th minute FEU’s Alesa Dolina got into position for a potentially lethal strike from just inside the penalty area, but the shot was swatted away by the UP defense.

Commotion broke out around the 65th minute after tempers flared between UP’s Kali Huff collided FEU’s Alina Rose Araneta just along the wing. Players from both teams had to swarm the scene of the scuffle to keep the belligerents apart from each other, and cooler heads would soon prevail before any more shoves be thrown.

The remainder of the half saw FEU continue to mount attack after attack. Dolino, FEU’s go-to girl for free kicks found herself keeping the UP faithful on their edges of their seats, converting every and each one of her free kicks into a clear on strike on the goal, but found herself stopped by the swift reflexes of UP goalie Javier.

UP had one last golden opportunity to nail the coffin for FEU, after Marie Huff found herself one-on-one with the FEU keeper after squeezing past the Tamaraw defenders, but the point-blank shot was blocked off by goalie Ramos.

The last ten minutes of the second half and the four minutes given as injury time saw FEU successfully control possession to build set piece after set piece and keep the UP defense on their toes. The Lady Tamaraws suffered another setback when Barbie Ann Sobredo was sent off the field after receiving her second yellow card of the game, at just around the 90th minute. FEU would manage to put up another couple of good attacks in the dying minutes of the injury time, but none would get into the net.
