Rivals Ateneo, DBTC arrange rematch

DON Bosco Technology Center (DBTC) and Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC) once again spark their rivalry in the high school division of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) as they face off in the championships.

DBTC continued its display of dominance with a 3-0 victory over University of San Carlos (USC) in the semifinals.

Thomas Ramos hit the opener in the 66th minute of the match. It was followed up with a goal by Josh Asignar three minutes later. Clyde Vitualla made it 3-0 with a timely goal in the first minute of added time.

Leo Maquiling scored a brace to lead SHS-AdC to a 2-0 victory over the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) in the other semifinal match.

Maquiling hit the back of the net in the seventh and 76th minute if the match.

Meanwhile, the University of Cebu (UC) and USPF finally logged their first victories of the season in the collegiate division.

UC came from behind to beat defending champion USC, 2-1.
