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.
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
