Here are some of the pictures of the recently concluded Central Visayas Athletic Association meet, where Cebu City swept both elementary and high school football crowns.

CIS trounces USC (ako nagsuwat ani)

YOUNG guns Team Cebu City (TCC) and Cebu International School (CIS) took a step closer to a title showdown after winning their quarterfinals matches in the Aboitiz Division B yesterday at the San Roque Parish.

TCC, which recently won the Central Visayas Regional Athletic Association title, survived an early scare to beat Cebu Institute of Technology (CIT), 7-1, while CIS blanked the University of San Carlos (USC), 3-0.

Red Cards fly in Div. B

HINGS got ugly on the pitch in the Aboitiz Division B yesterday after the University of San Carlos’ Melvin Elle was downed by a vicious punch in their 7-0 win over FC Inter Cebu at the San Roque Parish yesterday.

USC had just scored their sixth goal when two minutes later Reino Ross Amora punched Elle, leaving the Carolinian blooded from a gaping wound just below his eye.

The 59th minute incident

Here's a few update regarding that punch.

The USC player has undergone surgery to fix his fractured bone in the nose.

Bill before surgery is P18,000, and I think professional fees are not included yet.

Here's a qoute from the USC athletic director.

"Atong ikiha katong nanumbag, sila'y pabayron pilay gasto sa ospital,"

Internet down, updates later

Brunei edges past RP, 3-2

TWO late goals and the Philippines' shot of making it to the Hassanal Bolkiah Trophy U21 semifinals was dashed after Brunei eked out a 3-2 win yesterday.

The loss kept the Philippines at the bottome with 0 points, while Myanmar is number one with six points and Brunei second with four.

The Philippines took a 2-0 lead in the first half, before Brunei scored in the 55th and the host  scored two more goals in the final two minutes.

Had the Philippines won, it would have gained the second spot as Brunei with be at third with one point together with Cambodia, which got routed by Myanmar, 7-0, in the other game yesterday.

While there regular teammate in out of town sojourn, Michael Sharpe, watched helplessly as Myanmar handed the Philippines a nice 9-1 beating, the Team Cebu City U19 are handing out routs of their own.

After getting held to a draw (I'm still quite in disbelief about this) by FC Inter Cebu, TCC turned their ire on Xsem Bros, which I presume is a team of former seminarians.

Blui Arriola scored four in TCC's 6-2 win.  Here are the pictures.

Myanmar crushed RP U21, 9-1

AFTER getting used to seeing the country winning or figuring closely in international matches, the first day of the Hassan Bolkiah Cup in Brunei will sure dampen fans after the U21 team got crushed, 1-9, to Myanmar yesterday.

Phil Younghusband may have added to his scoring tally, but the Fil-Brit could just as well forget the woeful match, which saw Myanmar getting the first goal in the third minute courtesy of Hia Aye Htwe, according to the event's official website.

Sharpe makes cut

CEBU International School’s Michael Daniel Sharpe joins a select group of Cebuano players after getting named to the National Under-21 team for the Southeast Asian U21 Championships in Brunei.

The inclusion of Sharpe, who has regularly played in the Men’s Open for the past two years, in the line up marks the third straight year a Cebuano has made it to a national team.

Aside from Sharpe, Kevin Tecson, Evanjames Mendoza and Joshua Cruz made it to the U14 team last year, while Oliver Colina, who also coaches at CIS, made the U23 team in 2005.
