CEBUANA football players test their skills against Manila's finest in the Rizal Football Association (RIFA) Cup Girls Football Tournament which opens today in Quezon City.
Making up the Cebuano contingent are PaBol Cebu training graduates from Sacred Heart School-Girls High, Southcrest School and Sacred Heart School-Jesuit.
Competing NCR teams are Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, Miriam College, Woodrose, Poveda, Colegio de San Agustin, Xavier University, Montessori, HED Center, Sunken Garden FC and Sphere FC.
"This is a very good chance to strengthen the girls' football arena because mostly, girls would not prefer football because it is rough and played under the heat of the sun," PaBol FC organizer Jonathan Maximo said.
"Girls football in Manila is on another level and we hope that we can give them a performance that is at par with theirs," Maximo added. Correspondent Marian Baring
