The University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Kicking Panthers coasted to their third straight victory in as many games with a 3-0 whitewash of the University of Cebu (UC) in the collegiate division of the 2008 Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) football event yesterday at the University of San Carlos (USC)-Technological Center in Brgy, Talamban,this city.
USPF’s Rene Sanchez Jr. sneaked in two goals at 37th and 76th, while John Phil Opigal plunged the final nail on UC’s coffin with a last-second shot.
USPF, however, couldn’t celebrate fully as Sanchez cannot see action in their next game as he was meted with a one-game suspension after being handed two yellow cards.
On the other hand, defending champion University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) bounced back from a frustrating defeat last week and vented its wrath on league newcomer Cebu Doctors’ University,11-0.
USJ-R grabbed all its opportunity to score, with 90 percent of the ball possession belonging to them.
Earl Yagao, Adrienne Mejaran and Robert Mamac posted two goals each, while the likes of Patrick Grandl, Paul de la Victoria, Jonathan Jamili, Russel Layuma and Eduardo Buglos Jr. had one goal each.
The University of the Visayas, which was without three of their star players who served their suspension, fought to a 1-1 draw. – Caecent No-ot Magsumbol
