THE University of Cebu surprised the University of the Visayas, 1-1, in a highly physical Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. football match that saw one player ejected at the University of San Carlos-Technological Center.
On the other hand, the University of Southern Philippines took first spot the hard way, with a 1-0, upset over the University of San Jose-Recoletos, while USC got the No. 2 spot without breaking a sweat after newcomer Cebu Doctors’ University only had six players at tip off.
USC and USPF are both undefeated in two games, but USP is two goals ahead in the tally.
Meanwhile, UC surprised UV to take the lead in the second half after a defensive error before the former champion got even late in the game.
The contest was so one sided that UV had 16 shots, with 13 on target, while UC only had three attempts in the whole game.
The Green Booters also had eight corners to UC’s none, while getting four players booked for yellow cards, including two for Julius Acre.
Meanwhile, in the high school games powerhouse Don Bosco Technology Center remained unbeaten as it blanked the University of San Jose-Recoletos, 7-0, still at USC-TC.
Peter Ricamora led the pack with a hat trick performance scoring his goals in the 22nd, 45th, and 48th minutes.
Charles Caballes added two goals for DBTC , while Miko Limalima struck the opening goal in the ninth minute.
Meanwhile, in the other high school match, the top seeded University of Southern Philippines-Foundation also had a similar feat as it won over USC-North Campus, 6-0.
Once again Jephunneh Pelanio led all scorers with two goals, one in the third minute and another in the 69th minute of the game.
Glovin Chavarria, Joel Mher Sayre, Lopito Tumulak Jr. and Paolo Joven Lapasaran added a goal each for USP-F.
