Ateneo starts hot
Cesafi secondary football
Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu Magis Eagles opened their campaign in the 2018 season of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) secondary football competition on the right note after tallying the first three points yesterday at the Cebu City Sports Center.
This, after Ateneo blanked University of San Carlos-Basic Education (USC-BED), 2-0, courtesy of Leo Maquiling who scored goals in the 50th and 70th minutes of the match.
In the first match of the day, University of San Jose Recoletos (USJ-R) and University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) each scored a point after ending their match in a 1-all draw.
USPF scored first via Dave Arizala in the 50th minute and it had seemed that the Baby Panthers had the win in the bag.
A last minute goal by Dustin Dray Ramirez in the 90th minute, however, put both teams in a stalemate.
Ateneo hopes to solidify its hold of the top spot when it faces first timer and a guest participant, the Sisters of Mary School Boystown Aloysians, at 10 a.m. today in the same venue.
Before the Magis Eagles-Aloysians match, defending champions Don Bosco Technical College (DBTC) Greywolves will open its title retention bid against USJ-R at 8 a.m.
In the afternoon, USC-BED hopes to shrug off its loss yesterday with a win against USPF at 1 p.m.
The teams will play in a single round robin format with the top four teams advancing to the semifinals.
The top 1 team will go up against no. 4 while no. 2 will face no. 3.
The winners will advance to the finals.
