UNIVERSITY of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) salvaged a 1-1 draw with the University of Cebu (UC) in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. football yesterday at the University of San Carlos Technological Center (USC-TC) football field.
UC is still winless and is on the brink of elimination. It has a 0-2-2 win-loss-draw record while USPF gunned its second draw of the tournament and has a 1-0-2 win-loss-draw record.
UC’s hopes for a semifinals slot rests in the hands of USC. If USC losses to USJR today by more than five goals then UC advances to the semifinals but if USC wins then UC will be eliminated from the tournament.
Rodney Gandionco of UC struck the first goal of the game in the 25th minute but was answered by an equalizer from USPF’s Mark Gallardo 17 minutes after. This is Gallardo’s second goal of the tournament.
Meanwhile, a yellow card was handed to Racen Saiton of USPF in the 40th minute.
Meanwhile, in the second game it was a scoreless battle of former champions as University of the Visayas (UV) and University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJR) fought to a 0-0 draw. UV had three players booked with yellow cards, Howard Dolino in the sixth Fredrick Alazas in the 44th and Josaphat Sacil in the 59th minute. (EKA)
