Cebu ready to roll

THE UNIVERSITY of San Carlos lady booters are ready to avenge their losses to Iloilo and Davao City when they represent Cebu City in the Philippine Football Federation National Women's Cup at the Tiongko field in Davao City on Aug. 16-23.

"The last time we played Iloilo in 2001 we lost, and against Davao we scored first but also lost," team captain Jan Salac said during yesterday's Scoop forum at Baseline Restaurant.

Salac is playing in her third National Championship along with Bontic Ocampo, who also attended the forum yesterday.

In their first attempt in 2001, they managed to salvage third place, while in their second try in 2003, they failed to reach the semifinal round.

This time around, after months of constant training under Richard Montayre, they are confident of a better finish in the tournament, which also has teams from Zamboanga, Iligan, Rizal, South Cotabato, Cagayan, Iloilo and defending champion Davao.

"This time the team is more confident and has the courage to fight for the championship," said Salac, whose team now carries the name Queen City United.

The Cebuanas have been undergoing endurance training the past two months and have also honed their skills and plays in preparation for the tournament.

Last summer QCU went undefeated to win the ladies crown of the Cebu Invitational Football Cup against the Cagayan de Oroteam, the same team they will meet in Davao City.
