JERMIAH Borlongan netted a brace as University of the Philippines ripped National University, 4-0, in the UAAP football tournament Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.
The second year midfielder completed the brace in a span of five minutes as the Maroons improved to seven points.
Borlongan scored in the 23rd and 27th minutes to create separation from the struggling Bulldogs.
Kintaro Miyagi and James Paul Condat came up with the finishing touches for the defending champions.
Miyagi scored in the 49th minute for his second goal of the season, while Condat completely shut the door on NU with a 77th minute goal.
A loss or a tie for Ateneo, which is playing UST as of writing time, means UP stays at the top of the table.
The Bulldogs on the other hand remained at the bottom half of the table with one point.
