DE LA SALLE-Zobel shocked a 10-man Far Eastern University-Diliman, 2-1, in last Saturday’s opener of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines Season 79 juniors football tournament at the Moro Lorenzo Field.
That stunning win by the Junior Archers ended the seven-peat seeking Baby Tamaraws’ 23-match unbeaten run which dates back from February 2013.
FEU-Diliman’s last defeat was in Game 2 of the Season 75 Finals, a 1-3 loss to Ateneo de Manila University.
De La Salle-Zobel, third placers last season, rallied from a goal down to prevail.
In the other match, Ateneo and University of Santo Tomas battled to a goalless draw.
The Baby Tamaraws will play the Tiger Cubs on Saturday, the same day that the Blue Eaglets and the Junior Archers collide. FEU will face Ateneo on December 17 to cap the first round.
The second round of action will resume on Jan. 14 right after a month-long holiday break.
