IN THE 19TH Season of Ang Liga, Division One, the San Beda Red Booters scored a win against the Adamson University (AdU) Falcons, 1-0, in their fourth match after a full time that lasted over an hour and a half at the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman Football Pitch last September 17.
The first half saw no clear winner as both teams engaged in a back-and-forth battle to secure a point.
The Red Booters were on the attack throughout the game, to no avail. However, the team had remained steadfast in defense, taking shuffles and crosses at the Falcons with Dominic Furia, Kirk Eman See, Vince Eric Baito, and Amir Aningalan all attempting to score a goal.
In the second half, at the 49-minute mark, the Mendiola-based squad at long last found the back of the net, leading the Falcons by one goal.
As the game entered its closing stages, the Falcons spared no effort in their quest to level the score, but their endeavors proved fruitless, occasionally leaving gaps that nearly allowed the Red Booters to tally another goal. At the end of regulation, it was the Red Booters who emerged triumphant, securing their second victory of the tournament and maintaining a 2-1-1 record.
On September 24, the Red Booters will face Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) still at the UP Football Pitch for their last match of the elimination round.
