Jason Cordova scored at close range off a Noel Espinosa pass in the 22nd minute to nip the Golden Booters, who entered the match with a twice-to-beat advantage, and to force a deciding game for the title on Sunday.
In the women’s side, UST also forced a deciding title game for the crown after defeating De La Salle, 2-0.
