I'm going on a vacation. See you next Tuesday. Anyone who has photos of the Mizuno Cup, e-mail it to me.

And here are some rules for the chat box, have some decency.

If you play for a school named for a blessed person, don't you think you insult that blessed individual by acting like such a bunch of assholes?

You brand that other team as a cheat, here, in my website, for what? Just because you lost?

'Divine intervention' helps Dads United

THE Dads United kept their 36-above crown in the Mizuno Cup yesterday after repulsing the Hiroshi FC, thanks to a different kind of "dad"—a French priest.

Fr. Gregory Plus, a priest based at Community of St. John in Banawa, banged in the lone goal in the 10th minute for Dads United 1-0 win over Hiroshi in the final yesterday.

"He is the dad of all of us," said one member of the team after their victory.
THE Canduman Elementary School-M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation (CES-MLSDF) and the Abellana National School-Pomeroy came up with steadier shots in the shootout to win their respective divisions in the Mintsports Shop Mizuno Cup at the Cebu City Sports Center.

Both teams defeated separate squads from Paref Springdale to rule their division.
In the Players 10 finals, CES-MLSDF’s Mark Joseph Pelizelda won a shootout of sorts with Enzo Ceniza to lead his team to a 2-0 win in the shootout.

In regulation, Ceniza put Springdale on top with a lovely goal from the corner in the eighth minute.

More of DR JP's pictures

I was going to do this with Flickr, but I still couldn't figure out how to.

Since there is another tournament this weekend and presumably, more pictures, I guess I have to upload this before another batch of pics.

See you at CCSC this weekend.

By the way, I was told that three prominent sports personalities (two colleagues and a...) said I shouldn't be concentrating on football because there is no market for football in Cebu.

Of course, coming from folks who have never seen a football festival, I'll take that statement with other "informed opinions" from uninformed fools.

Note, the third to the last and last fotos are quite alike. Quite but not..

San Roque pictures

The San Roque Cup is over, cheers to all the champion and to those who didn't make it, hope you had fun.

Here are a few photos, all from Dr. J.P.

First batch. The rest will be done on Flickr, once I know how.

San Roque Day Two

NINE-year-old Lawrence Colina averted a shutout for the hosts after banging in two goals in the San Roque Football Fiesta Players 10 final yesterday.

Colina’s goals lifted SRFC, which lost in three other finals in the two-day event, to a 2-1 win over the improving MLSDF Canduman.

After getting behind by a goal, Colina banged in two for his team’s seventh straight win and earning him the MVP nod in the division.

In the Boys 14 final, Jason Paculaba banged in John Rey Nieves’ miss to carry the Abellana National School Pomeroy, to a 1-0 win over the Blessed John Seminary.

San Roque Day One

THREE teams got their titles after a little bit of luck as shootouts dominated the first day of the Pepsi Presents San Roque Football Fiesta at the San Roque Parish football grounds yesterday.

Paref-Springdale took home the Boys 17 crown after beating Abellana National School (ANS), while Guissepe and Sacred Heart School ruled the Girls 12 and Girls 17 categories respectively with San Roque Football Club finishing second in both contests.

Stay tuned for pics and update of the San Roque football fiesta.

130 teams sign up for San Roque

A HUNDRED and thirty teams signed up for the second edition of the Pepsi San Roque Football Fiesta on Aug. 18 and 19 in Mandaue City.

Organizer Eleazer Toledo said there was a drop in the number of entries from last year’s event because some schools have limited their entries in the annual fiesta, which offers contest in the various age groups in the Boys and Girls divisions as well as the men’s and women’s open.

Though they may have been absentees in the roster, Toledo said they also have a few new schools like the Little Angels Montessori signing up for this year’s edition.

The screening for the festival will also be conducted by the Cebu Football Association, which is imposing a new rule regarding football events.

“We were told that if you organize a football event, the CebuFA will hold the screening because they have the records,” said Toledo.

The CebuFA’s role is also expected to limit or erase notions of cheating in the age divisions, which hounded two festivals last year.
