Friday, December 6, 2013
THE young female booters of Minuluan-Talisay City Football Club flew the other day to Manila to compete in the 18th Alaska Football Cup on Dec. 7 and 8.
The Talisaynon U17 squad was supposedly scheduled to fly last month but the tournament was reset due to super typhoon Yolanda.
The 13-member team will be competing in the U17 and Open Ladies divisions.
The Talisay City-based ballers are Hanah Martinez, Christine Duran, Chelo Marie Hodges, Irish Navaja, siblings Mikaela and Natasha de Asis, Mariel Eusebio, Thea Claire Concepcion, Ma. Isabelle Simone Yusay, Janna Lagman, Christine Miranda, Kristine Aguilar, and keeper Ivy Lopez.
The Talisay squad is sponsored by Mayor Eric Saratan, MTFC president Rafael “Juny” Lizares Jr., Mencho Lacson, and the girls’ parents.
The team’s participation in this tournament is part of the city’s sports program to continually strengthen its effort to uplift the competitiveness of its athletes.
Saratan said their goal is to further improve the city’s sports tourism. (HGD)
