It was a day for former champions in the opening of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation football event at the University of San Carlos Technological Center field.

The University of the Visayas (UV), the 2005 champions, humbled the current title holders, USC, 2-0, while four-time champion University of San Jose Recoletos opened its campaign on a strong note with a 3-1 win against the University of Cebu.

Junard Aguilar scored the first goal for UV in the 38th minute of the first half and Freddie Rica added another goal in the 72nd minute for the win.

The highly-favored USC football team is now without last year’s coach and former RP Team member Joshua Fegidero after Fegidero returned to Bacolod.

The youthful team now handled by Fegidero’s former assistant Gary Panagsagan, started its campaign on a wrong note after losing to UV in their first game.

In the second game, USJ-R, the champion from 2001 to 2004, overpowered the University of Cebu (UC), 3-1, to take its first win in the tournament.

Adrianne Mejaran struck first for the Jaguars in the 13th minute before Ariel Repeso equalized for UC seven minutes later.

The Jaguars got the go-ahead goal from Paul dela Victoria with only 10 minutes left before Robert Mamac added the insurance goal deep in injury time.

Today UV will face UC at 1 p.m. and the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) will face off with USC at 3 p.m. still at the USC-TC football field. (EKA)
