UAAP 85 WFB: Altiche goal, Dacanay saves propel FEU past UP for third straight win

Carmela Altiche and Khryss Dacanay made crucial contributions to Far Eastern University’s 1-0 win over University of the Philippines in the UAAP Season 85 Women’s Football Tournament, Saturday at the UP Diliman Football Field.

Altiche managed to break the deadlock in the 37th minute. The Masbate native tapped the ball home on a rebound after Fighting Maroons goalkeeper Frances Acelo parried away Regine Rebosura’s attempt.

“It was a great start during the first half,” said Lady Tamaraws coach Let Dimzon. “We had a lot of plays from the side. We had a lot of chances also. Na-dominate namin yung buong first half but second half, since na-feel ang pagod, inatake kami ng UP. So nawala na yung composure.”

Come the second half, UP was on the ascendency and took the game against FEU. Lady Tamaraws goalkeeper Dacanay became busier throughout that period, and she made three fine stops, the last of which was denying Fighting Maroons’ Abby Dumada-og late in the contest.

“Good show up from Dacanay,” said Dimzon. “Very dangerous in the last 10 minutes, pero she was able to be strong mentally. Nagawa niyang i-kontrol yung attack, and then nagawa niya i-save lahat ng plays.”

Ultimately, FEU held on to remain on top of the table with 9 points on the back of three straight wins.

Meanwhile, UP ended the first round with 7 points behind two wins, one draw, and one defeat.

FEU will face De La Salle University this Saturday at 6:00 PM. UP will return to action in the second round.
