Ateneo flexes muscle over Adamson in UAAP football

By Philip Maranan

TAGUIG--Ateneo dominated Adamson, 4-0, in their UAAP men's football Saturday night showdown at the McKinley Hill Stadium.

After a scoreless first half, Mikko Mabanag gave Ateneo the lead three minutes into the second half as he placed his shot to the far post.

Ateneo then doubled its lead thanks to its centerback Jeremiah Rocha, who capitalized from Mabanag’s free kick in the 55th minute.

The Blue Booters kept their standard over the Soaring Falcons by creating more chances in the following minutes of the game.

Ateneo then tripled its lead in the 85th minute thanks to Jarvey Gayoso, who faked his shot twice before curling it to the goal.


Just as the game was closing, the Ateneo side got their fourth goal as Mashu Yoshioka got free in the penalty box of Adamson.
