USJR OUSTS UV BOOTERS

DEFENDING champions University of San Jose Recoletos (USJ-R) brightened its chances for a fourth title after it eliminated the University of the Visayas (UV) in the 2010 Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (CESAFI) Football Championship collegiate division yesterday at the University of San Carlos Technological Center (USC-TC) in barangay Talamban, Cebu City.

The Jaguars showed the Lancers the exit door with a commanding 4-0 win.

UV ended its 2010 campaign with just a point after losing thrice on four outings. The one bright spot in UV's experience this year was having scored a 2-all draw against USC.

Eduardo Buglosa started the rout for USJ-R with a goal into the 1st minute of the match.

UV, which was fighting for survival, was not able to equalize until Junjun Pintuan scored USJ-R's second goal at the 21st minute.

The Lancers tightened its defense and was able to prevent the defending champions from once again finding the back of the net going into halftime.

However, back-to-back USJ-R goals in the 51st and 52nd minutes courtesy of Buglosa and Adrianne Mejaran proved to be UV's final nail in the coffin.

In the second game, USC snatched the top spot from idle University of Southern Philippine Foundation (USPF) with a 2-0 win over the University of Cebu (UC).

Folkhanes Anthony found the back of the net with a flick of his left foot five meters from the goal that sent the ball soaring over the goalkeeper in the 9th minute.

Ian Salabao sealed USC's win with his contribution just nine minutes left before the break.

Despite the loss, UC is assured of a spot in the semifinals with just four teams remaining in the tournament following UV's exit.

USC now enjoys seven points and has a chance to end at the top of the leaderboard should it win its final elimination assignment next weekend while USJ-R climbed to the second spot with six points for second place./CORRESPONDENT MARS G. ALISON

THE University of San Carlos (USC) reclaimed the top spot of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. collegiate football with another victory yesterday at the USC-Technology Center pitch.

USC routed University of Cebu (UC), 2-0, to keep its lead in the collegiate competition.

Winger Folkhanes Anthony scored on a cheeky chip from five meters away in the ninth minute for the first goal.

Ian Salabao struck in the 36th to increase USC’s lead to 2-0.

UC controlled the game in the second half but unfortunately couldn’t hit the back of the net.

In the second match, defending champion University of San Jose-Recoletos eliminated University of the Visayas with a 4-0 beating.

Needing a win to stay in the top four, UV’s fortune turned south early as Eduardo Buglosa scored in the first minute before Junjun Pintuan made it 2-0 in the 21st.

Buglosa scored another goal in the 51st, while Juvinal Villahermosa sealed the match after hitting the back of the net in the 80th.

USC is now back at the top spot with seven points while USJR is now second with six.

The University of Southern Philippines Foundation, which didn’t play yesterday, dropped from first to third with six points, while UC is third with three points.

UV, the 2005 Cesafi champion, only has one point in four games and its loss means USJ-R, USPF, UC and USC are assured of a spot in the semifinal round.

The four teams will play another round next week to determine the rankings.

UC will take on USPF, while USJ-R will face USC.

DEFENDING champion Don Bosco Technology Center (DBTC) posted its third win in the 10th CESAFI High School Football Championship yesterday at the University of San Carlos – Technological Center (USC-TC) in barangay Talamban, Cebu City.

DBTC scattered 10 goals and conceded only one to the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) for its third win in the tournament. The Panthers ended the elimination round with six points after winning two games and losing two.

The tournament's top goal scorer Miguel Caindec started the rout for DBTC with a goal in the 9th and 27th minute of the match. Two other Bosconians found the back of the net twice. They were Joseph Mercado (18th, 20th), and Robert Gealon (30th, 47th). Other scorers for DBTC were Christian Agot, Christian Noel, Nonito Salazar Jr. and Junjay Arizabal.

Jenarolo Dondoyano scored the lone goal for USPF.

In the second game, the Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC) blanked the University of San Jose Recoletos (USJ-R), 6-0, to take over the second spot in the standings.

COLLEGIATE DIVISION

Meanwhile, the University of the Visayas (UV) faces a lofty assignment in its bid to enter the semifinals in the college division at the USC-TC in Talamban.

Not only will it have to win its last game in the elimination round against USJ-R, UV would also have to hope that the University of Cebu (UC) will lose its final two elimination games.

Should this happen, UV would take over the no. 4 position and advance to the semifinals.

UV is currently lanquishing at the bottom rung with a point while UC is at no. 4 with three points.
 
UC will also be doing its best to hold on to its current standings as it faces current second placer USC. /CORRESPONDENT MARS G. ALISON

USPF GUNS FOR THE SOLO LEAD IN CESAFI SECONDARY FOOTBALL

THE UNIVERSITY of the Southern Philippines (USPF) looks to win against the Don Bosco Technology Center (DBTC) to take over the top spot as the 10th CESAFI High School Football Championship resumes today at the University of San Carlos – Technological Center (USC-TC) in barangay Talamban, Cebu City.

A win against the defending champions would give the USPF a total of nine points as it will be playing its last match in the elimination round.

This will, however, be no easy task as DBTC has played a seemingly perfect game so far, having conceded only a goal against 21 of its own. DBTC also has in its lineup Miguel Caindec, who is the top goalscorer of the tournament with seven so far. However, just a goal behind Caindec is USPF’s Jacob Omega.

In the second game, the Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC) will try to solidify its hold of the third place as it sees action against the University of San Jose Recoletos (USJ-R).
 
Both teams have three points. But SHS-AdC has the advantage of having a goal difference of one, while USJ-R only managed to find the back of the net once and conceded four goals in two matches. /CORRESPONDENT MARS G. ALISON

After losing its first game, USPF beat USJ-R and the University of Cebu (UC).

USC is second with four points, while USJ-R and UC both have three points but USJ-R is third on goal difference.

With only one point in three matches, UV has to win against USJ-R to make the final four and overtake UC in the standings.

The game against USJ-R is UV’s final assignment in the elimination round, while the four other teams will have another game on Oct. 3, giving them more chance to move up the ranking.

On Oct. 3, UC will take on USPF, while USJ-R will face USC.

If UV loses this Sunday, it will be eliminated and the two Oct. 3 games will only be for positioning for the semifinal round.

The No. 1 team will take on the No. 4, while the No. 2 and No. 3 will square off.

(CESAFI) Football Championship in the collegiate division at the University of San Carlos (USC) Talamban Campus.

The USJ-R got its retention bid back on track with a convincing 3-0 win over UC.

It was not an easy win for USJ-R as UC fought them every step of the way, resulting to a scoreless first half of the match.

The defending champions finally found a hole in UC's defense in the 53rd minute courtesy of Junjun Pintuan. Agapito Baclaan Jr. extended USJ-R's lead to two with a goal in the 77th minute.

Junifer Ebero sealed the win for USJ-R with his last minute goal. The win towed USJ-R to third place with three points.

The University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF), on the other hand, took over the top spot after slipping past the University of the Visayas (UV), 1-0, in the second match of the day.

Both teams had a sluggish start, neither finding the back of the net in the first half.

USPF's Rene Sanchez Jr. scored the lone goal of the match at the 58th minute.
The USPF now has six points while UV drops to the cellar with just a point.
 
USPF will be one man down on its next match after Jonard Fuentes was sent out of the match yesterday.

With DBTC owning the tournament's top goal scorers, SHS-AdC’s bid to steal the lead is expected to face rough sailing.

THE UNIVERSITY of San Jose Recoletos’ (USJ-R) title retention bid suffered a setback after it lost to the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF), 1-2, in its first match of the 10th CESAFI College Football Championship yesterday at the USC Talamban Campus (USC-TC).

USPF overcame a bad performance in last weekend’s opening games with a convincing win over the defending champions.

Aljohn Armamento started the ball rolling for USPF after scoring his goal at the 20th minute of the match. USJ-R scored the equalizer four minutes later courtesy of Junjun Pintuan.

In the second half, both teams tightened their defense and it seemed the match would end in a stalemate until Joseph Rodriguez found the back of the net with just three minutes remaining in the ballgame sealing USPF’s first win in the tournament.

USPF’s win catapulted it to third place in the team standings with three points, while USJ-R is currently at the bottom rung with no points.

USC, on the other hand, retains its current status as the leader after it ended its match against the University of the Visayas (UV) in a 2-all draw.

Folkhanes Anthony once against scored USC’s first goal in the 15th minute of the match. This was followed by another goal from teammate Karl Vincent Arcenas with five minutes remaining in the first half.

Determined to barge into the win column, UV’s Juvinal Villahermosa immediately scored an answering goal just a minute into the second half.

As the game progressed, USC seemed to be feeling the absence of two of their players who were serving their one-game suspension for incurring red card violations.

(CESAFI) football event at the University of San Carlos (USC)-Technological Center field in Brgy. Talamban, this city.

USJ-R dropped further at the bottom of the standings after it absorbed a 1-2 setback to the University of Southern Philippine Foundation (USPF).

It was a sorry loss for USJ-R as it broke the ice of the match courtesy of Junjun Pintuan at the 24th.

USPF, however, suddenly caught fire in the second half, with Aljohn Armamento and Joseph Rodriguez knocking in back-to-back goals at the 73rd and 87th to turn back USJ-R.

Another highly-physical match ensued which resulted to USJ-R’s Russel Layumas, and USPF’s Joseph Rodriguez, Jonard Fuentes,Lopito Tumulak and Carlo Zabalero being slapped with yellow cards. Also, Paul Niño de la Victoria of USJ-R will serve an automatic one-game suspension after being assessed with a red card at the 20th.

USC, on the other hand, took the temporary lead despite figuring in a 2-all draw with the University of the Visayas (UV).

USC seemed headed to a smooth-sailing victory as its took a 2-0 advantage at halftime courtesy of goals from Folkhanes Anthony and Karl Vincent Arcenas at the 15th and 40th.

But UV displayed great fighting spirit, thanks to the heroics of Juvinal Villahermosa who punched in two consecutive goals at the 46th and 90th to save the day for the Green Booters.

Three yellow cards were issued in that slightly physical match, two from Joe Marie Arriesgado of UV while the other one came from Hannesin Prince Anthony of USC. (FREEMAN)

A missed tackle by the USC warrior let the USP forward escape towards the opponent's goal.
Numerous counter attacks by the USPF panthers proved futile.  The USC goalkeeper looks bigger than the goal.
More, more attacks from the blues...
But this time its for Africa.
