THE University of San Jose-Recoletos opened its campaign on a strong note with a 7-0 rout of Bicol in the Private Schools Athletic Association meet in Zamboanga City yesterday.
Adrianne Mejaran led the strong start with a hat trick while Paul Niño dela Victoria scored two goals for the Jaguars, who are the reigning Cebu Schools Athletic Association champion. Marvin Abelgas and Earl Yagao also added one goal apiece. The Jaguars stifling defense also limited the offensive options for Bicol as the Cebuanos kept a clean slate in its opener.
USJ-R, representing Prisaa 7, will face the dangerous home team Zamboanga City today.
Coach Joselito Bono of Central Visayas believes that Zamboanga is a force to reckon with because they have been playing for so many years together. The team is also outstanding in defense and has strong wingers and midfielders.
“If we give a hundred percent we can win this,” said Coach Bono in an interview with Sun.Star Cebu yesterday.
USJR won the right to represent Central Visayas after beating Negros Oriental representative Foundation University in the Prisaa regional elimination in Cebu City. (EKA)
