CARMONA -- Champions La Salle kept its pace with leaders UST after dispatching archrivals Ateneo , 4-0 in Sunday's lone action in San Lazaro.

National team standouts Alisha Del Campo and Kyra Dimaandal each scored a brace as the Lady Archers of coach Hans Smit to wallop the Lady Eagles and inched just two points closer to the Tigresses at the conclusion of match-day 14.

Del Campo scored La Salle's first goal in the 22nd minute after converting from Jannah Barcemo's free kick.

Then Dimaandal took over in the second half, finding the back of the net in the 63rd minute by converting on a Sara Castaneda pass to launch a powerful shot into the top side of the goal to double
their lead.

The Davao native, who was last season's best player then made it 3-0 nine minutes later with a free kick into the top left corner.

Del Campo then put the finishing touches in the 82nd minute after chipping it into the empty net.

Hiraya got its second win of the season quite easily, as La Salle-Zobel forfeited its 8 AM curtain-raiser.
