IT'LL be a rematch of last year’s finals as Don Bosco Technology Center (DBTC) defends its title against rival Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC) in the Boys Under-15 division of the 18th Aboitiz Football Cup.

DBTC earned another ticket to the finals after an easy 7-1 win over Abellana National School (ANS) yesterday at the Magone pitch of DBTC.

Dustin Ramirez scored the opening goal for DBTC in the 23rd minute. ANS, however, equalized six minutes later with a goal by Kenneth Niaga.

That was the closest ANS would get as DBTC dominated the whole match from then on.

Arc Angelo Manlosa scored in the 33rd minute and Jashua Tabar added another two minutes later for a 3-0 lead at half time.

The Greywolves continued where it left off in the first half with JP Alinsugay hitting the back of the net in the 43rd minute. Louis Colina scored in the 50th minute, Josh Asignar hit his mark in the 69th and Jose Urot added another goal for DBTC in the 73rd minute.
