LA SALLE-Zobel and Far Eastern University forged a title duel after blanking their respective foes Saturday in the UAAP juniors football tournament at the Moro Lorenzo Field.

The Junior Archers extended their perfect run to four by blasting University of Santo Tomas, 3-0, while the Baby Tamaraws needed two late goals to beat Ateneo, 2-0.
La Salle-Zobel now has maximum of 12 points while FEU-Diliman is in second place with nine points, as the top two teams are now beyond reach in the league table with two match days remaining in the eliminations.
Joshua San Diego scored just before the first half ended while Miguel Basmayor and rookie John Rey Lagura sealed the win with second half goals for the Junior Archers, who will make their first-ever championship stint.
The Blue Eaglets and the Tiger Cubs remained at the bottom with one point apiece.
The one-game final is set on Feb. 4 at the McKinley Hill Stadium.
