DON Bosco Technology Center is in a must-win situation in the last match of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. high school football event today at the University of San Carlos-Technology Center.

DBTC must win its game against the top-seeded University of Southern Philippines Foundation because a draw would automatically give the latter the title.

Unlike the college category the Cesafi high school football tournament follows the league type rule, which means that the team with the highest number of points, is declared the champions.

However, even if both teams are tied with six points apiece, USP-F holds a two-goal advantage over DBTC, which gives them the upper hand if ever the game ends in a draw.

Another award that USP-F and DBTC will be competing over is the Golden Boot award. USP-F’s Jephunneh Pelanio and DBTC’s Peter Ricamora are neck-to-neck for the award being the two highest scorers in the tournament with five goals each.

Meanwhile, in the other high school match, USC-North Campus will be facing University of San Jose-Recoletos, with the winner clinching the third place.

In the college division, the undermanned University of the Visayas team will be going up against the undefeated USC squad.

UV, which only has two points in two games, will be without three of their top players coming into this game. The team lost captain Frederick Alazas, striker Junard Aguilar and midfielder Julius Acre after they acquired their second yellow cards.

In the other college clashes, the defending champion USJ-R will be playing a winless Cebu Doctors’ University, while the top-seeded USPF will take on University of Cebu. (EKA)
