UAAP 85 MFB: UE’s Final Four hopes end after goalless draw with Adamson

Adamson University held the University of the East to a goalless draw in their UAAP Season 85 Men’s Football campaign closer on Sunday at the UP Diliman Football Field.

The Soaring Falcons finished the campaign in seventh place with two points, behind two draws and 10 defeats. They also eliminated the Red Warriors from Final Four contention as the latter needed a win to keep their postseason hopes alive.

Masaya siyempre kasi yung mga bata nag step-up talaga kahit yung standing namin is wala talagang panalo and yet binigay nila yung kahit anong meron sila,” said coach Jeffrey Orada.

“From the start, ang pangit ng start ng season. Maraming nangyaring isyu. Gayunpaman, hanggang dulo, maganda naman yung pinakita nila,” he added.

Adamson went close to scoring multiple times after a goalless first half. Demnes Arañas and Jhon Devon Coquillo saw their attempts saved by UE goalie Lance Bencio, who did his best to keep the scores level.

Late in the match, the Red Warriors had a penalty shot waved off by referee Oliver Moreno while Eldrin Madrid came close to scoring with a header, but it was parried away by Soaring Falcons goalie Andrew Nalog.

“Yung mga boys, sinet up ko na talaga sila for the next season,” said Orada. “Kasi kami wala na kaming inaano na umangat. Para din mag-boost din ng confidence ng mga bata kahit lahat ng ginamit ko dito ay puro rookies.”

The Red Warriors, who had an undefeated first round before slipping to sixth place, finished with 16 points on the back of four wins, four draws, and four defeats.
