Lady Booters unable to finish off UST in Game 1
It’s like déjà vu all over again in the Women’s Football finals as the Lady Booters were not able to close out the series in Game 1, losing to UST 2-0.
Yesterday’s setbak brings to mind last year’s finals between the same two teams as La Salle squandered a twice-to-beat edge to UST to stop the Lady Booters from winning their first football crown since completing a rare four-peat in 2006.
Perhaps the biggest blow to the Lady Booters in this championship series is the loss of ace goal keeper Haya Ibarra. She injured her anterior cruciate ligament after the double round eliminations.
Without Ibarra, UST relied on top striker Marianne Narciso to deliver the killer blows as she scored all of the two goals in the match.
The winner-take-all match is scheduled this Sunday, 9AM at the ADMU field.
