THE University of the Visayas survived the University of Cebu, 2-1, to boost its chance of making the finals of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. collegiate football tournament at the Cebu City Sports Center.

UV is now at second place with seven pointss in four games on a 2-1-1 record, trailing idle University of San Carlos by four goals.

Former champion University of San Jose-Recoletos is third after fighting the University of Southern Philippines Foundation to a scoreless draw.

John Vargas scored the first goal, while Andrew Duaso got the second goal for UV, which also beat USC for their first win this season.

UC, which had three draws and a loss prior to the match, got its lone goal in the 84th courtesy of Romelito Gesulga.

UC stays at fourth place after the loss at three points and the Webmasters need to end their win-less streak if they want to make the finals.

Only the top two teams after the double round robin will make the finals. (ML)
