(This report by Cheska D. Geli will appear in Sun.Star Cebu on Jan. 21)
QUEEN City United drew its opening match in the United Football League Division 2, 1-1, against Diliman Victory Liner at artificial turf at Global City,

Coach Mario Ceniza said playing in the artificial turf for the first time was a unique experience for Queen City and the players were not used to it.

After conceding a goal in the first minute, Queen City managed to regain their composure.

Nakalitan mi, pati ang mga players.  Maayo ning kontra kay nakaduwa na sila last time diri,” said Ceniza.

However, the early lead did not bother the revamp squad of QCU with new recruit Hanesin Prince Anthony converting a penalty in the 30th minute afte rJunard Aguilar was fouled.

“After that unexpected goal, the boys held their composure and focused on the game,” said Ceniza. “I commend the boys because they were not discouraged even if they conceded in the first minute, they fought back. They wanted to win but it was just very unlucky.”
