DBTC plays catch-up in Aboitiz Cup
DON Bosco Technology Center (DBTC) teams will have to play its games today before they enjoy the rest of the Sinulog weekend in the 15th Aboitiz Sports Field at the Aboitiz Sports Field.
The team will be busy as it will have to bear the consequences of having its games rescheduled during past weeks. DBTC requested organizers to adjust its schedules as the players had an exam, while some represented Cebu for the Central Visayas Regional
Athletic Association meet late last year.
But the team is still looking strong and is on course to defend their titles in the Players 8, Players 10, Boys 12 and Boys 14 divisions.
Eight of its 11 teams in the Players 8 will be playing today, with DBTC-A taking on Bright-A in the first game followed by DBTC-2 against Bright Minds Active Learning Village. DBTC-1 will face Warshockz in the third game and Canduman will challenge DBTC-C. CDG
In the Boys 12, Paref Springdale will face CPMS in the first match followed by Don Bosco-1 against CIE and Don Bosco-2 against SRP FC. DBTC-3 will face Hijas de Jesus.
The Boys 14 match will feature the classic rivalry between DBTC-1 against SHS-AdC in the first game, while Paref Springdale-A will face Hijas de Jesus. Springdale-B will take on Subangdaku FC. CDG
