CEBU CITY, Philippines— After earning dominant back-to-back victories last week, the Central Visayas Football Association (CVFA) absorbed a 1-1 draw against the SOCSARGEN Football Association in their game on Sunday, June 25, in the ongoing Philippine Football Federation (PFF) U-19 National Championships Group B.
