THE UNIVERSITY of the Visayas secured the top spot in the standings heading into next week’s semifinal round after beating the University of Southern Philippines, 2-0, in the Cesafi football tournament yesterday at the University of San Carlos field.

The win gave UV nine points with a 3-0-1 (win-loss-draw) slate.

A crucial span of five minutes in the second half proved to be USP’s undoing as it allowed Junard Aguilar to escape with a goal in the 67th minute. Frederick Alazas then sealed the deal for UV with a goal in the 72nd minute of the game.

Meanwhile, the defending champions University of San Carlos’ downward spiral continued yesterday as it lost to USJ-R, 1-0.

In spite of the loss, USC will still make it to the semifinal round as it has a higher goal difference against the University of Cebu, with whom they found themselves tied with. The semifinal pairing will pit UV against USC while USJ-R tackles USP next weekend./CORRESPONDENT JONAS PANERIO.
