Unigames – Day 1
The women’s football tournament kicked off the 2010 University Games in Dumaguete City. Ateneo went up against neighbors UP Diliman in day one of the tournament. The Lady Booters had 15 tries at the goal but made only one. The game ended in a draw, 1-1.
The men’s football team took a beating from University of St. La Salle losing 0-4 in their first of three games in the tournament.
In men’s volleyball, the Eagles fought tooth and nail to win a five-set match against spikers from the College of St. Benilde. Gritty defense and smart plays gave Ateneo a 25-19 win in the first set. They, however, lost their footing in the second and third. They came back with steam in the fourth but Eagles failed to capitalize on their final set lead and lost 2-3 to CSB. (Set scores: 25-19, 24-26, 19-25, 25-17, 12-15)
In men’s basketball recently crowned three-peat UAAP champions defeated Mindanao State University Marawi in a lopsided basketball match Sunday afternoon at the Macias Sports Complex in Dumaguete City. Former Zobel standout Gwynne Capacio top-scored with 13 points, while three more Eagles took up scoring duties and added 10 points each. The Eagles were merciless on the court and ended the game with a 92-42 scoreboard.
