THE BOOTERS of the University of San Carlos (USC) did not take long to get into form as they defeated the University of Cebu (UC), 4-2, in the collegiate division of the Cesafi football tournament at the USC-Technological Center in Talamban.

USC, last year’s runner-up to the crown and champions in 2006, wasted no time in getting on the scoreboard as they scored in the game’s first minute behind a quick strike from Renan Gustilo. 15 minutes later, vaunted striker Kyle Soriano joined the scoring parade with a prolific conversion while Patrick Philip scored in the 34th minute to propel the lead to 3-0 that all but decided the game’s outcome.

UC’s Rodney Gandionco tried to rally their troops with a goal in the 76th minute but USC’s Eldon Ensumo quickly squashed those hopes with another goal six minutes from regulation time. UC’s Julius Jumaoas added a consolation goal in extra time to peg the final tally.

The University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) also scored a 6-0 win over newcomers Cebu Doctor’s University (CDU).

Scoring two goals each were Joseph Rodriguez and Rene Sanchez while contributing a goal each were John Casayan and Edmar Galacio./CORRESPONDENT JONAS PANERIO
