Defending champions University of San Jose-Recoletos and Don Bosco Technology Center started their title retention bids in contrasting fashion in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (CESAFI) football event yesterday at the University of San Carlos-Technological Center (USC-TC) field in Brgy. Talamban, this city.
USJ-R, the reigning titlist in the tertiary division, fought to a scoreless draw with the hard-fighting University of the Visayas booters.
Don Bosco, which won the secondary title last season by just a goal difference over the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF), opened their campaign for back-to-back crowns with a masterful 6-0 drubbing of the USC-North Campus.
Don Bosco logged three goals in the first half and added another three in the second half. Those who scored for Don Bosco were Milo Joseph Limalima, Angelico Ramirez, Andrew Tabar, Ropert Guilon, Frenx Tarongoy, and Peter Ricamora.
USPF is also no course for a grudge rematch with Don Bosco after it annihilated USJ-R, 9-0.
USJ-R simply could not contain USPF’s scoring machines Jephunneh Pelanio and Paolo Lapasaran, who were accounted for a total of five goals.
Pelanio completed a hat-trick at the 12th, 28th and 53rd, while sneaked in goals at the 22nd and 34th.
The other goal contributors for USPF were Lopito Tumulak, Joed Bulotano, Joel Mher Sayre, and John Rey Dacalos. — Caecent No-ot Magsumbol
