In football, Central Visayas ended its bid on a strong note, behind the secondary boys football team's 2-1 win defending champion Davraa.

Miguel Caindec, who scored the team's second goal uabashedly cried while holding on to his gold medal.
“I have worked so hard for this. We all worked hard since the city Olympics and then the regional meet. All the efforts paid off,” said Caindec.

Coach Glen Ramos, on the other hand, said the team was very determined to win.

“It was a job well done,” said Ramos, who steered the team to their very first secondary title in 11 years. The last time Central Visayas won was in 2000, during the time of Dave Gerali, who is the assistant coach of Cviraa.

Ramos and the DBC team had to forfeit their match in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. since the schedule was in conflict with the Cebu City Olympics, the qualifier for the DepEd meets. Because of the forfeiture, DBC, undefeated in the Cesafi, lost its high school title and was threatened with a ban.

On the other hand, the elementary boys football squad lost in the final to Region 10, 3-1. The team was playing without captain Enzo Ceniza, who was given a red card in their semifinal match.
