BY JAELLE NEVIN REYES ON DECEMBER 11, 2016 FOOTBALL TIMES

University of the Phil-ippines reentered the winners’ column after beating Fuego Espana FC, 3-0, in the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) Women’s League first round at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium on Saturday.

The Lady Maroons managed to bounce back through the three-goal performance of high scoring standout Mary Rose Obra, who registered her second hat trick of the tournament.

During the game, Obra was off to a hot start in the opening minutes of the contest after connecting deep inside their opposition’s territory in the second minutes.

After conceding early in the game, Fuego Espana reorganized their defense and fortified their back line to prevent a blowout throughout the majority of regulation.

However, the offense of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines champions came alive in the final 10 minutes of the match to secure a victory for their squad.

Proficient scorer Obra struck back-to-back goals in the 85th and 87th minutes, respectively, to extend their advantage to 3-0 before the final whistle.

Consequently, the Ladies of Diliman were handed their first loss of the tournament after being stunned by Outkast FC, 0-2, in their heated meeting last December 3.
