Blazers too strong for Chiefs

COLLEGE of St. Benilde came alive in the second half and pounded Arellano University 5-0 to grab the solo lead in the seniors’ division of the 93rd NCAA football tourney at the Rizal Memorial Complex grounds on Wednesday night.

Leading by a goal in the first half courtesy of Vincent Erik Lovitos who struck in the 12th minute, the Blazers unleashed a four-goal onslaught in the second half to improve to a league-best 13 match points on four wins and a draw.

Lovitos and Major Dean Ebarle accounted for three of their team’s four second half goals and finished with a brace apiece. Carmelo Vicente Genco the other goal.

The Chiefs skidded from No. 2 to No. 3 as the San Beda Booters were held to a 1-1 standoff by Lyceum. San Beda and AU had 10 match points each but the former had better goal differential 27-1.

Nimrod Balabat scored in the 51st minute to give San Beda, the defending champions, a 1-0 lead but Levi Malihan struck back with a rocket of his own in the 73rd as the Pirates escaped with a draw.

Lyceum, which forced CSB to a scoreless draw two weeks back, remained in the magic four with six points.

In the only other game, Perpetual Help and Mapua fought to a 2-2 standoff.
