Despite leading by one goal late in the game, La Salle had to make do with a 1-1 draw at the hands of University of Santo Tomas, last March 24, 2019, at FEU-Diliman.
Shanden Vergara drew first blood for La Salle at the 74th minute via an assist from substitute Alfonso Montelibano.
Just when it looked like the Taft-based school will hold on, crucial errors down the stretch allowed UST to equalize through rookie Miguel Mercader’s goal at the sixth minute of added time.
It was definitely the most painful way to lose a winning position by the team and it had to make do with a point.
After the result, La Salle still sits at 2nd place with 13 points and it seeks to return to winning ways against University of the Philippines on March 31, 2019, 3:30 PM.
