Un­beaten La Salle faces OutKast FC

Manila Times - - FOOTBALL - JEREMIAH M. SEVILLA

LEAD­ING squad De La Salle Univer­sity bat­tles OutKast FC while Green Archers United (GAU) FC col­lides with Hi­raya FC as the sec­ond round of the Philip­pine Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion Women’s League kicks off to­day at the PFF Na­tional Train­ing Cen­ter in Car­mona, Cavite.

The un­beaten Lady Boot­ers and OutKast square off in the open­ing game at 1 p.m. even as Green Archers United takes on Hi­raya at 3 p.m.

La Salle is way ahead in the ten­team field as it holds a spot­less slate of nine wins in as many games for 27 points, 13 mark­ers clear of sec­ond-run­ning Far Eastern Univer­sity (FEU).

OutKast is on the fifth spot with 14 points on a 4-2-3 win­draw-loss record but a vic­tory for the alumni boot­ers may push them to the sec­ond spot.

In their pre­vi­ous meet­ing, the de­fend­ing Univer­sity Ath­letic As- so­ci­a­tion of the Philip­pines cham­pion trounced the Rhea Pe­nales-men­tored OutKast, 3-1, last June 4 at the Rizal Me­mo­rial Foot­ball Sta­dium.

Mean­while, GAU seeks a re­turn to the sec­ond spot when it tan­gles with Hi­raya.

The Ala­bang-based fe­male boot­ers dwelt on No. 2 for most part of the first round be­fore their mas­sive 1-6 de­feat to sis­ter squad La Salle.

GAU now aims to erase the stigma of that de­feat as it tries to im­prove their 16 points on a 5-1-3 card in or­der to sur­pass FEU.

Hi­raya, cur­rently on the sev­enth spot, eyes to hike its 10 points on a 3-1-5 slate in its bid to close in on the up­per half of the stand­ings.

GAU romped over Hi­raya 4-0 in their pre­vi­ous en­counter dat­ing back to the sec­ond match day on De­cem­ber 4 last year.
