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

Igimax: love your sport, make it your passion

Mr. Ampiloquio, Dr. Payod, Mr. Mendoza, Mr. Rosal, Mr. Cabuguas, teachers and staff
My dear parents and friends… 
My fellow awardees… 

Sport teaches me a lot of things. Allow me to share them with you especially to the younger Titans.

The first one is to love your sport. Never do it to please someone else. It has to be your choice… it has to be your passion.

Defeats are like fire. It can destroy or strengthen you, depending on your outlook in life. But remember, the fire that melts the butter is the same fire that hardens the steel.

Champions are not made in the gym. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision.

The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. And remember, when you are not practicing, someone, somewhere, is practicing and when you meet him, he will win. This goes to show how important hard work and sacrifice is.

Being a student and an athlete at the same time is not easy … it takes a lot of hard work, sacrifice, determination and proper time management on both our school work and training schedules. We could not have done this without the support of our parents and our school, PAREF Springdale.

In behalf of all the awardees, let me thank our school for giving us the opportunity to learn things outside the four walls of our classrooms. You encourage us to explore on extra-curricular activities such as sports, without having to give up on our academics. Your all-out support and understanding by excusing us from our classes yet allowing us to make up for our absences is such a privilege that not all student-athletes from other schools enjoy. This is probably the reason why most of us, Springdale athletes, if not all, excel in our sports.

We learned how to balance both our chosen sport and our studies. We thank you, teachers, for shaping our character and making us the kind of student-athletes that we are today. We really appreciate and will forever be grateful for the opportunities you opened up for us not only academically but also in the field of sports. And of course, to all our parents, we thank you for your unconditional love. Thank you for the support and sacrifices you have given us to make things possible and for always being there for us, no matter what.

Let me end this by sharing with you my “3 Simple Rules in Life”:

– If you do not GO after what you want … you will never have it. 
– If you do not ASK … the answer will always be a no. 
– If you do not step FORWARD … you will always be in the same place.

Learn to TAKE risks … and see where your brave heart can take you!

God bless the Titans! Good evening.

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.

Rising Football Superstar of Cebu

THE rising football superstar of Cebu, Paolo Pascual, showed positive signs of making it to the pool of players who will compose either the senior team or the Under-23 squad of the Philippine National Football team.

The official announcement of the final list will be released today but Azkals team manager Dan Palami already confirmed that the remaining 13 hopefuls are part of the training pool.

“The pool of players are already considered as part of the team,” Palami said. 

The Azkals coaching staff required the players to go through a series of practice games and trainings while waiting for the final list. 

“Paolo is performing well. He is training with other goal keepers and he will train with the national team as well,” he added. 

Only two goalkeepers will be sent to play for the upcoming match by the Philippine team against Mongolia and Neil Etheridge had already confirmed his presence. 

They will announce today who the other keeper will be. 

ABS-CBN will be the official broadcasting partner of the AFC Cup game in Bacolod this Feb. 9. 

Offers 

Meanwhile, while waiting for the final results of the tryout, Pascual received an offer to play with the Global FC. 

Global FC is a team under the APC Global Incorporated, which actively participates in the premier football leagues in the Philippines such as the United Football League. 

“He is young, trainable and has a good work ethic,” said Franco Lorenzo, team manager of Global FC. Lorenzo founded the team with Palami. 

They first noticed Pascual when the Cebuano became part of their training pool, who played for the Under-19 Asian Qualifiers in China in 2009 when he was still 17. 

Passion 

Lorenzo said he admired Pascual’s enthusiasm and passion for football and his willingness made him throw the offer to the aspiring professional football player. 

Pascual said he has not confirmed it yet. “I am is still weighing my options regarding the offer to play for Global FC. I still need to consult my parents,” said Pascual. 

Lorenzo offered him a monthly allowance and a slot in the trainings for the Under-23 team of Global FC. 

“I’m not forcing him because I know he still has obligations in Cebu and he still has to pursue his education but this is a good chance towards achieving his dream,” Lorenzo said. 

The young player is overwhelmed by the response of other football teams to his performance. 

“I feel so happy. It’s a good team with good players,” said Pascual. 

Lorenzo asked Pascual to watch the championship game today of the Global FC against the Army Team so that he will get to know the players and observe them. 

He already included Pascual in the list of players for the team’s next game. 

“There are a lot of options. I could go to school here and and train at the same time or I could go back to Cebu and come back whenever they have trainings for the under 23 but my priority would be playing for the Azkals,” Pascual said.

Springdale boots out SHS-Ateneo to advance

DESPITE the muddy football pitch which made it difficult for the players to pass the ball, Paref-Springdale booked a finals seat today against the Los Amigos in the 11th Cebu Amateur Football Club Interclub (CAFC) National Football Cup at the Springdale football field.

Springdale defeated Sacred Heart School- Ateneo De Cebu 2-1 in yesterday’s Boys 12-Under semifinals.

Jomigo Rafols scired first for Springdale in 4:31 minutes, before Ateneo’s Kurt Cuizon tied the match with a goal in the 12th minute.

With eight minutes left and Ateneo making two failed attempts to score, Springdale’s Ryan James Haosen shocked the crowd as he took the ball from the halfway line and made an incredible score to lead, 2-1.

“It was really a difficult game for my players on the muddy pitch but I am glad that they were able to pull it off. I just hope we will have a good weather for tomorrow’s finals,” Springdale’s head coach Mario Ceniza said.
