    MANILA, Philippines — University of the East, once again, played spoilsport to Ateneo’s bid with a 68-65 victory Saturday — but this time, a finals spot in the 2012 Sandugo Unigames was at stake.
    The Red Warriors, who brought along their core to Bacolod City led by Roi Sumang, thwarted the unbeaten run of the defending champions Blue Eagles to move on to the finale.
    National University also had to go through hoops just to clinch the first finals spot, needing a game-winner to defeat Adamson, 67-66, at the USLS gym.
    The Bulldogs, who also boasted a complete line-up, was salvaged on a putback by UAAP MVP Bobby Ray Parks Jr. with more than a second left on the clock.
    UE and NU clash in the knockout final game Sunday as the annual country-wide competition comes to a close.
    In the women’s division, the Lady Bulldogs slipped past five-time Unigames titlist Lady Falcons, 91-87, in overtime.
    NU banked on an offensive surge in the extra period to get a crack at the championship after an 81-all stalemate at the end of regulation.
    Far Eastern University, which went undefeated in the UAAP to claim the title recently, narrowly escaped Lyceum in the Philippines, 52-50, to set up a clash with NU.

    FEU, NU top Unigames; UE no-show in finals

    BACOLOD CITY--Far Eastern U seized the men's football and women's basketball gold even as National U emerged the men's basketball champion after a controversial no-show by University of the East today at the conclusion of the 17th Sandugo University Games at the University of St. La Salle-Bacolod Gym here.

    The Tams, fuelled by a strong program under their football director and Loyola Meralco Sparks coach Kim Chul Su, bucked a late, spirited charge by USLS Stingers in injury time to escape with a pulsating 5-4 victory to cop the men's football mint over at the Pana-ad Park and Stadium in this event bankrolled by Sandugo and backed by Smart.

    Jesus Melliza, a mainstay of the Green Archers United Globe team currently competing in the First Division of the Manila-based United Football League, finished with a hat-trick including two when the Morayta-based booters seized a 3-1 lead at halftime.

    But FEU, which has sent players that were part of the National Capital Region team that won the gold in the Palarong Pambansa in Lingayen, Pangasinan last May, saw that lead vanished after Aldrin Dolino and Marson dela Torre responded with goals on the 61st and in the second minute in extra time, respectively, to knot the count at three apiece.

    Eric Ben Gicanto then unloaded a rocket a minute later before Melliza struck in second extra time to gain a two-goal cushion.

    Jimmy Malaloan scored on a penalty kick to cut it to just a goal deficit but didn't have enough time in the end to turn it around or force a penalty shootout.

    "We're happy because we won this event even though most of our players are just 14 years old," said Jade Bejeminio, who is coaching in the absence of FEU head coach Vince Santos, an assistant to Kim at Loyola, in Filipino.

    The weeklong event though was spoiled by the sudden decision of the UE basketball team to leave for a previous commitment in Chinese Taipei the night before its gold medal showdown with National U yesterday, leaving the latter with its second title in three years on a silver platter.

    Last year's champion Ateneo, which fell to UE, 65-68, in the semis the day before, downed Adamson, 58-56, to nail second place as organizers headed by Roger Banzuela stripped the Warriors from taking home any placings in the cage competition.

    The Falcons, who protested their 66-67 semis defeat to the Bulldogs, also planned of not playing their last game but ended up deciding to suit up upon the repeated plea of Dodong Bascon, a popular sports organizer here. Adamson clinched third place.

    To fill up the schedule ruined by UE's absence, NU, which also won this annual meet two years ago in Dumaguete, played this year's UAAP runner-up Santo Tomas in an exhibition game for just two quarters and barely won it, 54-52.
