PFF Women’s Cup: FEU takes cup after two-goal rout of UP

Far Eastern University capped its PFF Women’s Cup run with a 2-0 victory over University of the Philippines in the Final, Saturday at the PFF National Training Center in Carmona, Cavite.

The Lady Tamaraws finished third in the table with 15 points before scoring a 3-0 rout of Tuloy in the semis.

And FEU made sure to finish what they started in the country’s league for women’s football before heading to the UAAP Season 85 tournament next February

“We prepared for the direction of this team before the start of the tournament,” said Lady Tamaraws head coach Let Dimzon.

“I saw the team’s potential in this tournament, their hard work, dedication to the game, and that they put in their 100-percent every time they stepped into the pitch.”

Lylhanie Cayabyab pounced on an errant pass by UP’s Jennifer Baroin to slot home the opening goal in the 17th minute.

With minutes left in the match, UP had to finish with 10 players after Alyssa Ube was sent off after a high boot to an FEU player which allowed the Lady Tamaraws to clinch the title from the set piece.

Lyka Cuenco headed it into an open goal following a mad scramble in the box from the free kick to put FEU 2-0 up and wrest the PFF Women’s Cup.

“We pushed ourselves throughout the competition,” said Cuenco. “We expected UP to come out strong that’s why we had to work harder for the win.”

The curtain raiser saw Kaya FC-Iloilo edge Tuloy FC, 1-0, to claim the third place award. Sheen Ramores’ 83rd-minute winner was the difference between the two sides.

Kaya took third place after a 1-0 win over Tuloy. Sheen Ramores scored the bronze-clinching goal at the 83rd minute.
