CSB, UP bat­tle lowly foes in Ang Liga Sea­son 15


COL­LEGE of St. Be­nilde (CSB) and Uni­ver­sity of the Philip­pines (UP) eye to keep their win­ning forms when they take on sep­a­rate foes in the top di­vi­sion of the Ang Liga Sea­son 15 col­le­giate foot­ball tour­na­ment to­day at the De La Salle Uni­ver­sity Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Com­plex Foot­ball Field in Biñan, La­guna.

Rid­ing on the crest of a two-game win­ning streak, St. Be­nilde tack­les cel­lard­weller Emilio Aguinaldo Col­lege in the cur­tain-raiser at 1 p.m.

The Blaz­ers stunned de­fend­ing cham­pion Uni­ver­sity of Sto. To­mas, 1-0, be­hind Vin­cent Eric Lovi­tos’ 73rd minute goal in their pre­vi­ous out­ing.

The Gen­er­als, on the other hand, suf­fered de­mor­al­iz­ing de­feats in all their three games, in­clud­ing a 0-3 beat­down to lead­ing team Lyceum of the Philip­pines Uni­ver­sity last week.

A win for the Taft-based Be­nilde will pro­pel them back to the top four and past reign­ing Na­tional Col­le­giate Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion ti­tlist San Beda Col­lege.

Mean­while, the State U seeks to keep its foothold on the third spot as it takes on the win­less Uni­ver­sity of Per­pet­ual Help Sys­tem DALTA at 3 p.m.

The Ma­roon Boot­ers banked on a strong sec­ond half show­ing as they scored a 3-2 up­set against erst­while leader Na­tional Uni­ver­sity three weeks back.

Still on the hunt for their maiden vic­tory, the Al­tas Boot­ers look to erase the stigma of their 0-2 loss to Na­tional U in their last game.
