San Beda faces Arellano U in sweep bid

San Beda College seeks to close in on a season sweep as it clashes with defending champion Arellano University today in the seniors division of the 92nd National Collegiate Athletics Association football tournament at the Rizal Football field.
Drawing strength from a double by Fil-Brit Connor Tacagni, the Red Booters, the first round pennant winners, survived a fiesty Lyceum of the Philippines, 2-1, Tuesday to remain unscathed and move two wins away from sweeping its way to the finals where they will enjoy a thrice-to-beat edge.
 The Mendiola-based school will need to beat Arellano University in its 12 noon showdown and College of St. Benilde on Tuesday for it to advance straight to the finals.
The Blazers are the other unbeaten squad in the Final Four after it edged the Chiefs, 2-0, Tuesday to stay in the title hunt.
St. Benilde is aiming to beat LPU in their 2 p.m. duel and San Beda to force a one-game finale against the latter for this year's crown.
But the Red Booters, who are gunning for a league-best 22nd championship, are determined to win it all.
In juniors' play, Arellano University looks to continue its giant-slaying ways as it faces off with San Beda at 8 a.m.
