UST booters looking to crack top four in UAAP match against listless UE

UNIVERSITY of Santo Tomas looks to stay within reach of the UAAP Season 79 men’s football tournament leaders when it takes on listless University of the East on Thursday at the Moro Lorenzo Field in Ateneo.

Kick off is at 2 p.m. with the fixture between La Salle and Adamson at 4 p.m. wrapping up the double-header. 

The Tigers have been inconsistent this season as they ended the first round with a 1-0 defeat to National University, which clings on to fourth place of the table. 

But with the Bulldogs' 2-1 defeat to the FEU Tamaraws last Sunday, the Tigers now get a chance to tie the Bulldogs at fourth with 10 points. 

The Green Archers, on the other hand, look to avenge their first round shocker to the Falcons that started their winless run in the tournament. 

The last time La Salle won a game was more than a month ago when it beat UE in its second game of the season. 

Table: Ateneo 20, FEU 15, UP 11, NU 10, UST 7, La Salle 5, AdU 3, UE 1
