PAOLO Pascual pulled two saves to lead Team Cebu City (TCC) to a scintillating 5-4 shootout win over a gritty Cebu International School (CIS) in yesterday's Aboitiz Division B finals at the San Roque Parish football grounds.
Both teams ended the regulation tied, 2-2 with both teams exchanging their hold of the lead.
In one of the games at the Cviraa, when Cebu was leading 1-0 (I forgot against whom) it seemed one official made a call to have the game stopped. Hmmm...
In the Thirsty Cup, one coach from the losing team in the finals threw a punch at the winning coach. I read the report of the coach and the organizer...(While this happened, I was bored stiff covering a golf event somewhere else)
Unknown to millions of their fans around the world, three football greats are now in Cebu to start their one-week furlough in the Philippines.
Football giants Ronaldinho, of Brazil and FC Barcelona, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho's former teammate in the Brazil national team who now plies his trade in Italy and Zinedine Zidane dropped by the other day in Cebu.
TAKING PICTURES LIKE TOURISTS. Ronaldinho snaps a photo of Zidane picking up his luggage at the airport on the way to the Taxi stand in Mactan.
As the Men's Aboitiz Division B winds up--thankfully with no more punches thrown-- and the Aboitiz Boys 14 picks up pace, the Cebu Football Association will hold an 11-a-side tournament for the Girls 16 at CIS.
After playing mostly in the seven-a-side matches in football festivals, the girls will get a taste of real football when they play the full side.
The tournament will also be used to pick the players for the Cebu squad which will see action in the Philippine Football Federation Under-17 Girls Championship this summer
