CORPUS Christi School’s dominance in the local football has spilled over to Davao City when it topped the Boys 16-under division of the Allianz National Invitational Futsal Mindanao champions held Saturday, May 18, at the Davao National High School Futsal court.
Led by most valuable player (MVP) Josh Go and Cagayan de Oro’s top young footballers in Mj hojas, Geo Tacandong, Emilio Rubio, Mhel Tado, Xavier Estrella, Jesse Bajarla, Andre Ebuña and reinforced by two Rosevale School players Dale Anoya and John Gementiza, the Corpus Knights won the title with a convincing 4-1 victory over PCT Aligators of Davao City in the championship match.
The lads of father and son coaching tandem of Wilbert and Marc Racines were undefeated from the elimination up to the championship round. They won over Lianga 6-1, and Crocs Davao 2-0 in the elimination round and then whipped Holy Cross of Camp Philips, Bukidnon, 3-1, in the semis to advance to the final.
But the great applause of the night went to the son of football supporters Regner and Mercy, Josh Go. The former National U16 team player was the key player in all their matches en route to winning the MVP award.
However, the greatest applause of the night was reserved for goalkeeper Andre Ebuña, son of another football fanatic Pinky Ebuña, who was named to represent the Philippines in the 2019 Allianz Explorer Camp in Munich, Germany.
He was selected by select members of the Philippine Football Federation, coaches, organizers and sponsor Allianz Philippine National Bank Insurance Inc.
