6-0 doesn't matter | La Salle ready for Ateneo challenge

For Nicole Andaya and La Salle, the past results does not matter.

MANILA -- La Salle's spirits are in an all-time high after smashing UST to pieces last Saturday to go on top of the UAAP women's football table.

And it bodes well from the managerial staff, up to its players, as they set on sights on the top-of-the-table clash with archrivals Ateneo on March 4.

"The girls are getting into their groove, in their regular game. But they could still have done better, Hopefully we get better every game where it matters" said a cheerful Hans Smit, who added that they executed the plan perfectly unlike in their season opener against titleholders UP last Feb. 18

"They executed. I told them sometime's not good enough," quoted the fiery gaffer when comparing their first match. "Its a good thing that they perform and follow my instructions, I told them to get early goals in the second half to break their backs, I didn't worry about the two goals of UST, those were two errors on the defensive side."

Nicole Andaya shared her thoughts, adding that her performance at the left wing improved compared to against UP.

"It was very different. I think today it's a process," Andaya said. But when talked about the rivalry game, their last match against the Lady Eagles does not matter to her anymore.

"To me it's not any matter. That's the past, obviously it was a good win. But we have to think the UAAP is a whole different ballgame," she concluded.

Sophomore Sara CastaƱeda feels nice to get the three points, and also echoed their statements.

"We can't relax at the moment because we need to work hard," the former Zobel standout said.
