CEBU CITY, Philippines — The University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters stunned the heavily favored University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) men’s volleyball tournament on Saturday, January 6.

UC fought with USJ-R in a five-set tooth-to-nail battle, 25-22, 18-25, 25-20, 18-25, 15-13, during their game held at the University of San Carlos (USC) Main Campus gymnasium.

This was a statement win for UC, that finished with a bronze medal in the previous season of the Cesafi men’s volleyball tournament, that they’re capable of beating the current league-leader.

The victory improved UC’s record in the Cesafi men’s volleyball to seven wins with two defeats and they now have a huge chance to dislodge the No. 2 team and the defending champions, Cebu Institute of Technology University (CIT-U) Wildcats, from their position.

However, that will be determined if the Wildcats win against the USC Warriors as they have a scheduled match today, at the same venue. 

Meanwhile, the Jaguars absorbed their second loss with seven wins. Still, they remain on top of the team standings. 

On the other hand, the  University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Panthers outlasted the University of Cebu Lapu-Lapu Mandaue (UCLM), 25-22, 25-20, 25-22, also on Saturday. 

The win pulled USPF to the fifth spot with six wins and three defeats, while UCLM dropped to a 3-3 (win-loss) record.
