It wasn’t the best day at the office for the De La Salle University Women’s Football Team but they still found a way to get something out of it.

In what was its first game after the Holy Week break, La Salle was held to a 1-1 draw by the University of the Philippines Lady Maroons, Saturday afternoon, at the Circulo Verde field in Quezon City.

La Salle had numerous chances to score early in the game but its forwards uncharacteristically lacked composure in front of goal.

Against the run of play, UP forward Mary Rose Obra shot past goalie Natasha Lacson five minutes before the first period ended.

Come the second half, UP was the more aggressive team and La Salle almost conceded another goal but Lacson was on hand to deny State U’s Alyssa Ube.

With 15 minutes left in the game, midfielder Sara Castañeda unleashed a long shot, which was then mishandled into her own goal by UP goalkeeper Nicole Adlawan.

“(The players) had no intensity. This was the lousiest game they ever played. Not because it’s a draw because we also drew UST (in the first round) but this was the lousiest game in terms of attitude. We lacked intensity. We lacked a lot of things,” said La Salle coach Hans-Peter Smit who then praised UP for its performance.

The result increases La Salle’s tally to 11 points at 1st place in the standings. The Green & White next faces University of Santo Tomas on May 1, 2019, 3:00 PM.
