PLAYERS and football aficionados trooped to the Ayala driving range yesterday as probably the biggest soccer event to open 2004, the 1st Thirsty Football Fiesta, blasted off with seven divisions setting battling it out.

First to emerge above the field was age-group powerhouse Don Bosco Technical Center, which took three slots in the six-a-side Under-8 division semifinal round.

DBTC 1, which cruised through with a six-game winning streak, and DBTC 3 (4-1-1 win-loss-draw) toppled the rest of bracket A in the two-day fiesta to enter the semifinals which kicks off at 7:30 a.m. today.

While DBTC 4 (4-0-1) reaped the top slot in Bracket B followed by Cebu International School (4-0-2) at No.2.

Cebu City Counclior Sylvan “Jack” Jakosalem was there to grace the event’s opening, which started at 7:30 a.m., along with the sanctioning Cebu Football Association president Jonathan Maximo and Thirsty’s operations chief Charlie Pages.

The kickoff was highlighted with the introduction of the teams and the selection of the hottest muse.

DBTC 1 will meet CIS in the crossover semis today as DBTC 3 takes on DBTC 4.

In the U-10 cluster, the four-bracket field saw CIS 1 (3-0-1) and University of San Carlos-Boys High (3-0-1) dominate Bracket A to take to first two quarterfinal slots starting today.

The formidable Springdale (3-0-1) racked up the top slot in Bracket B while CIS 2 (2-2-0) settled for the No.2 spot. DBTC 4 (3-0-0) and Springdale 3 (1-1-1) took the quarterfinal slots in Bracket C while CIS isplay fearsome form as the Rey Calo-coached squad took the top spot in Group A, winning three of four games, going into the semis while the debuting Bright (1-1-2) finished No.2.

CIS, with a perfect four-game slate, and Springdale (2-1-1) plucked the top spots in Bracket B.

Meanwhile, the ultra tough Men’s division will start today with the foreigner-laden Crazy Horse, which debuted at the runner-up spot in the 2003 Aboitiz Cup, anticipated to survive the elimination.
