Titans won the 2013 Milo Little Olympics Football National Finals

Springdale Titans Secondary Football Team with Coach Mario Ceniza

TEAM Visayas swept the elementary and high school football fans in impressive fashion, routing their foes in the final day of the Milo Little Olympics National finals.

The elementary team, represented by the Don Bosco Technological Center of coach Joselito Bono, scored a third straight shutout with a 6-0 win over Mindanao to finish the tournament with nine points, five points clear of second placer Mindanao.

On the other hand, Coach Mario Ceniz and the Paref Springdale Titans capped the affair with an 8-0 rout over Mindanao to win the high school title on goal difference.

Visayas and NCR finished with seven points on two wins and a draw, but the rout over Mindanao gave the home boys a seven-goal cushion over NCR, which beat Luzon, 1-0, yesterday morning.

Meanwhile, it was the third straight title for Don Bosco and they did it in dominant fashion, routing Luzon, 14-0, in their first game and blanking NCR, 5-0 next. So dominant were the Bosconians that their goalkeeper Renz Murillo didn’t even get to touch the ball in the first day.

“It was only against Mindanao that he got to touch the ball,” Bono said.

Against Luzon, Christian Agot and Jascha Tabar took turns in menacing the defense and after 59 minutes, both had five goals to their names, with Agot completing a hat trick in the first 20 minutes. ARcangelo Manlosa also scored twice, while Dustin Ramirez and Jay Ian Alinsugay had one each.

Against NCR, Ramirez, Tabar, Agot and Vinz Ybañez had Visayas up 4-0 in just 20 minutes, while against Mindanao, Don Bosco had a relatively slow day. Ramirez scored twice inside 18 minutes to make it 2-0 before Luis Colina had two more and Agot and Tabar added one each in the second half to seal their win.

On target

Aside from the prolific scorers, the other members of the team are Antonio ALforque, Rey Bryan Cruz, Dale dela Cruz, Carlos Orale, Petrovic Pacifico, Luis Buyco and Januar Villarin.

In the secondary division, Springdale knew it had to win by at least two goals to overtake rivals NCR, which beat Luzon earlier, 1-0. And Mario Lorenzo Ceniza, Pericles Dakay Jr., Ryan James Haosen and Luis Alvarez immediately went to work, keeping Mindanao’s keeper Francis Salvo busy.

However, it was Mindanao that got the first real chance but Philippe Palamine’s striker from 10 yards was denied by a foot save by Conner Hines. In the 20th, Visayas finally got on board, Ceniza unleashed a shot from outside the box that Salvo failed to collect, leaving Haosen a simple tap-in to an open goal.

Six minutes later, Ceniza lovely through ball found an open Haosen but he shot high and a minute later, the wily midfielder didn’t take any more chances, taking a wicked shot from 25 yards for the second goal.

So powerful was the shot that Salva was able to tap it with both hands but it still went in. The keeper then signaled his coach to have him replaced. In the 32nd, Dakay, who scored the equalizer against NCR, made it 3-0 with another shot from outside the box.

Things got worse for Mindanao in the second half with Mark Nacional scoring a hat trick, Dakay adding another and substitute Dominic Canas hitting one for the final count.

The other members of the team are James Balao, Julius Caliva, Maverick Jacalan, Xavier Miguel Larrauri, Jose Lipardo, Sabin Veloso, Jon Young and sub keeper Domycko Villacin, who got in in the final minutes of the game against Mindanao.

Tonyo Carcel wins Kartzone KT100 expert

CEBU, Philippines – Even after all the misfortunes that he went through, Juan Antonio “Tonyo” Carcel kept his composure to win the premiere KT expert division of 2012 Kartzone Superkart Series—fourth leg at Kartzone in Kasambagan, this city over the weekend.

During the qualifying round, Carcel posted 33.525 seconds behind Joseph Rojo who clocked 33.398 seconds while JT Gullas posted 33.609 in wet conditions.

Even with a good position at the start of first heat, Carcel despite his vast experience in karting said that having the wrong gearing caused him trouble.

Carcel finished fourth behind Joseph Rojo at the end of the initial heat.

In the ensuing heat, Carcel had a bad start and got stuck behind a few karters in the back of the pack.

“I was able to overtake them later on already and finished at fifth,” said Carcel to The Freeman.

Looking back at it, Carcel’s second heat performance was actually his best lap time of the latest battle at 28.491 clocking on a damp race track.

The second heat saw Jette Calderon coming out on top followed by Sean Velasco, Joseph Rojo, JT Gullas and Carcel that made the final heat anybody’s game.

“I didn’t think I would end up winning,” added Carcel who started fifth in the final heat following their placing in the second heat.

But as real Titan, the senior high school student of Paref-Springdale Carcel poured everything he got, never gave up the fight and worked his way up.

With a good start, Carcel saw himself behind Sean Velasco after the first turn and he eventually outmaneuvered Veloso after two laps.

Carcel never looked back from there and won the 25-lap action.

He posted a total time of 11:54.791, followed by Jette Calderon who was 2.231 seconds behind the former and Sean Velasco at third spot.

Carcel’s day came out complete knowing his sister, Kali also got into the podium after coming second in the novice class won the Vince Rojo.

Panpan Reroma also grabbed part of the limelight after outsmarting Regan King for the masters’ division title. — THE FREEMAN

Paolo Pascual: Being a part of the Azkals is a very, very big achievement

MANILA, Philippines — Yannick Tuason and Paolo Pascual leave everything behind for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play with the Azkals.

Paolo Pascual, goalkeeper: The other ‘Papa P’

He may not be Piolo, but Paolo Pascual now has his fair share of crazy, adoring fans since joining the Azkals as one of its newest homegrown recruits.

Paolo and the rest of the U-23 (Under 23) players are currently preparing for the Southeast Asian Games in November in Indonesia where he will be the first goalkeeper.

He is also getting back to fighting form after he dislocated his shoulder almost two months ago.
 
Photo grabbed with permission from Paolo's Facebook.

Paolo was just a regular Business and Entrepreneurship college junior at the University of San Carlos in Cebu when he got a call from the Philippine Football Federation asking him to try out for the Azkals.

While it’s already an achievement to try out with other experienced and talented players who come from the other parts of the globe, what sets Paolo apart is the fact that he made it to the national team at only 20 years old. The 5’11” Cebuano native has been training with the Azkals since January.

Paolo started playing football when he was seven years old at Paref Springdale School. He was a striker until Grade VII when his coach Mario Ceniza realized Paolo had the potential to be a good goalkeeper given his height. He has since played in Global Smartmatic FC and in the Philippine U-19 team that competed in China.

Paolo is supposed to be in fourth year college now, but because most of the trainings are conducted in Manila, he is now looking for a school in the capital city where he can continue his studies while he attends the national team trainings at the same time.

Even if he is away from home, Paolo relates that he is always reminded by his father to “always be an intelligent athlete” by balancing academics and sports.

How did you get into football? I started when I was seven years old, for school. Since then, I’ve been playing football in elementary, high school and college. It has always been my childhood dream to play football.

Who are your football idols? Being a goalkeeper, I look up to Iker Casillas. Locally, I look up to my partner, Eduard Sacapano. He has a good work ethic and he has been with the team for so long so I think he deserves to get noticed, he deserves credit.

How would you describe yourself as a player? A goalkeeper should have discipline and a good work ethic. You shouldn’t give up. Even up to the last minute, you should give it your all. Neil Etheridge gives us a lot of tips. When he’s here, he trains us. He’s got a lot of really, really good and useful tips.

What type of a student are you? I’m silent, kinda studious and friendly.

Was it a tough decision choosing between school and being part of the national football team? It is football for now. But I know you can’t get a living by just doing football. You have to earn after football also. So you need a college degree and all that to go through with life. I talked to my mom and dad about it first and I told them that this is just a once-in-alifetime experience. My parents have been very supportive. They’re the ones who have been encouraging me to join the Azkals.

Who inspires you during a game? Number one is God. Next is ‘yung mga na-achieve nung veteran teammates namin, all the Pinoys who have been with the Azkals ever since, like Roel Gener. Their dedication to the team and to the country is amazing.

Do you have any rituals before a game? I just pray.

How has football changed your life? Now that we’re part of the team, you should be more conscious about your health. That’s something to focus on.

What do you consider is your biggest achievement so far? I think being a part of the Azkals is a very, very big achievement already.

What was your craziest experience with a fan? In Barotac (Iloilo) it is pretty wild. The crowd there is rowdy compared to Manila. Here kasi, they keep things to themselves. There they would, they release. They do anything.

Are you single or in a relationship? I’m single.

What do you look for in a girlfriend? I like someone who is God-fearing and family-oriented.

The biggest sacrifice that you have to make as an Azkal? Being away from the family. I’m from Cebu and to move here to Manila is a big sacrifice for me.

What was the biggest adjustment for you coming from Cebu? The life and the family. Homesickness. In Cebu, I have everything there, you have a home, you’re family is there for you. But here, you have to be independent. You have to learn how to live on your own. You have to find ways to get by here in Manila. It was hard adjusting. But after probably a month, I got used to it already.

If you were not a football player, what would you be doing now? I will be studying. Get my business degree then maybe I’ll go become a pilot. It’s been my dream as well.

Do you think the Azkals will survive without the Fil-foreigners? I think we also need the Fil-foreigners. They bring a lot of experience to the team. But skills-wise, I think the pureblooded Filipinos have it.

What was your initial reaction when you saw your team captain, Aly Borromeo’s billboard? Good for him. I’m happy for him. If you have that kind of body, why not flaunt it. Aly has been with the team for so long already, he really deserves all the attention and fame that he has been getting now. Same with Ian (Araneta), Chieffy (Caligdong) and Role (Gener). I’m closest to them and Yannick (Tuason).

Is there a player in the team that you get intimidated by? In football, if you get intimidated, nothing will happen to you. You have to be strong.

Azkals to Award Inter-club Winners

By

Participating teams in the Cebu Amateur Football Club (CAFC) 11th National Interclub Football Cup will have an added incentive in vying for the championships. The Philippine national football team more famously known as the Azkals will be awarding the champions of the tournament during its closing ceremonies on May 29 at the football field of the University of San Carlos Technological Center (USC-TC).

The tournament kicks off today in various football pitches in Cebu City. In a final coaches meeting last Thursday night, CAFC president Glenn Quisido urged all teams to go for the title as they will not only have the privilege to be awarded by the Azkals but will also have the chance to share the stage with them and have their photos taken with the national team.

The Azkals will be having their one-week team bonding here in Cebu City as part of their preparation for the World Cup qualifiers. According to Quisido, they will arrive on May 25 and will immediately start their training. Quisido said he was grateful that the Azkals agreed to spare the CAFC one day. In exchange, the club will be partly supporting the national team’s stay in Cebu.

The CAFC will also help the Azkals in their fund-raising activity by selling official Azkals shirts during the week-long tournament. The CAFC will put up booths in the three playing venues—USC-TC, San Roque football field and Paref Springdale and sell the shirts starting today until May 29.

The tournament, considered one of the biggest outside Manila, has gathered teams from the Manila Soccer Academy, San Carlos City, Masbate, Iloilo, Ormoc, Bohol and Northern Samar.

In an effort to make the tournament flow more smoothly, CAFC has decided to schedule only two games in the morning and two games in the afternoon in all playing venues. And just like in the previous years, Quisido lamented the scarcity of girls teams in the tournament. “We have encouraged them to join the tournament, however, most refused because they said they cannot come up with 11 members to compromise a team,” Quisido said. The tournament though has three girls teams contesting the girls 17-Under title. These are Queen City United, Aroroy FC of Masbate and the USC-TC.
