MANILA, Philippines – National University and De La Salle blanked their separate opponents over the weekend to stay on top of the table in the UAAP Season 78 men's football tournament at the McKinley Hill Stadium in Taguig.

Nico Macapal netted his third goal of the season as the Bulldogs bested a pesky Adamson University side, 2-0, while the Green Archers nosed out University of the Philippines, 1-0.

Both NU and La Salle have a maximum six points, but the Bustillos-based booters are ahead via goal difference.

In other matches, defending champion Far Eastern University upended Ateneo, 5-2, while University of Santo Tomas and University of the East battled to a goalless draw.

Macapal slotted on the 87th minute, moments after Paolo Salenga converted the spot kick which opened the scoring for the Bulldogs, who followed up last Thursday's smashing 4-0 conquest of the Red Warriors.

Jed Diamante's 62nd minute strike was enough for the Archers to book their second straight victory.

Braces by rookie Rico Andes (6th, 72nd) and Val Jurao (30th, 48th) and a Paolo Bugas goal in the 83rd minute was enough for the Tamaraws to move up to four points in a tie with the Growling Tigers in third place.

Former high school star Jarvey Gayoso also scored two goals for the Blue Eagles in the 64th and 73th minute.

UP and UE have one point in joint fifth, while Ateneo and Adamson remained without a point to stay at the bottom of the league table.
