DESPITE yielding early the Northern Mindanao slot to streaking host Cagayan de Oro-Misamis Oriental Football Association (CMOFA), the pre-tournament favorite Iligan-LDN booters showed discipline and sportsmanship, finishing their remaining match in Cagayan de Oro City Thursday with pride intact.

Returning to Xavier University's soccer field, the Iligan-Lanao del Norte team made a gracious exit winning over Butuan-Agusan Sur, 7-3, in the final day of one of Suzuki Cup's four cluster eliminations in Mindanao.

"Iligan and Butuan teams were very cooperative to the success of the tournament. We still have to find out why Surigao team failed to show when it already signified to participate," one Philippine Football Federation (PFF) official told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro.

Powered by Monte Carlo striker Emiliano Mabalos Jr., the Cagayan de Oro-Misamis Oriental Football Association team beat Iligan-LDN, 5-4, and Butuan-ADN, 3-1, to make it to the Mindanao Finals of the Suzuki-PFF U23 Football Tournament.

Other qualifying games are being simultaneously held in Central Mindanao, South Mindanao and West Mindanao. (LLS)
